Art Goods for Good Causes
The Paper Rain Project
Officially founded in 2013, The Paper Rain Project is a creative business based in Marlborough, New Zealand. We specialise in hand-crafted and ethical art goods (fair trade/organic clothing, leatherware, skateboard art & recycled wine-barrel longboards). We love travel, coffee, food & making good things.

Printing on these high-quality & ethical garments, we produce our apparel as limited edition artworks but also provide freedom through employment opportunity for women who would otherwise have no choice.
Thank you for your support! Browse t-shirts that support freedom here.
