In one of the cutest alleys of Gothenburg’s city center, lies Rum för Papper (Room for Paper). Ever since the opening in 1996, it's been a must-go-shop for “paper people” like ourselves on every visit to Sweden's second largest city.
It’s an exquisite little establishment where you find carefully chosen papers and boards in a wide range of textures and colours for all kinds of creative and artistic projects. And even though Multicopy is not one of the brands you will find there, we can’t help but love this unique boutique.
The people who run the shop have a great passion for paper as well as a vast knowledge of the material and its different qualities. They don’t just sell you the paper, envelopes, accessories and gadgets that you crave; Rum för Papper is more than a shop and also offer counselling on which paper best suits your project, graphic design, printing and tailor-made envelopes for those “not so standard” creations.
If you’re ever in Gothenburg, make sure Victoriapassagen (Vallgatan 19 for the GPS) is on the places-to-go-list, in order to experience this great shop first hand. However, if you too have a sweet spot for paper with that extra something, prepare to spend some time and money.

Humans’ urge to communicate has always been strong – and with the evolution of paper, the written form of communicating opened a whole new world of efficiency, suddenly dismantling geographical boundaries. Naturally, the history of papermaking is closely connected to societal, industrial, and cultural events.
