A decorative vase might be a domestic luxury, but you can dress up any old drinking vessel with this Paper Vase. The concept is quite simply an economical solution to household decor that can be shipped and kept in a standard envelope.

The sheets of coated paper come in white or a green gradient design, each with creases that crisscross the surface completely. These invite the occurrence of folds to form a triangulated multifaceted shape that gives the potentially flat material quite delightful dimension.

Pepe Heykoop's resourceful and artistic concept has another layer of appeal to it as well. The products are handmade by the women who live in the red light district of Mumbai, India, and the profits of the Paper Vase go to improving social, financial and medical services for the Pardeshi community.
