Copper and Brass Paper Goods
Copper and Brass Paper Goods started in 2017 with the idea to create something fun but also to introduce a family tradition. This story goes back to its creator, Ariel Young, and her mother, who was always giving care, detail and love when creating beautiful packages. These virtues were passed along the way like a torch, as Ariel naturally shares her mother’s enthusiasm for the pretty little details which can light up the day; and through this passion, she also noticed that paper goods and stationery lacked diversity. The products being offered were limited: There were not many products featuring Black people.
Ariel thought that representation was needed and she needed to contribute to a broader, more inclusive market, where Black people can feel seen and heard. So she did what came naturally— she combined her purpose with her passion. In its beginnings, the brand offered wrapping paper, gift bags, and tags; however, as the vision expanded, so did the line of products. Now the product line includes greeting cards, notebooks, accessories, and other small paper goods.
The brand shines a light on Black culture by promoting positive representation of Black people, using gorgeous illustrations which highlight the beauty and power of Black people. Making the community the focal point is our dream, and striving to make a memorable experience in your gift-giving is our goal.
