Oblation Papers & Press

Oblation Papers & Press began in 1988 by husband-and-wife duo Jennifer and Ron Rich. The couple began business and soon after opened a brick-and-mortar studio in Portland. They have always been attracted to the benefits and practicality of recycling. In fact, the business has its roots in taking unwanted paper products, converting them back into pulp, and making it into fresh, new paper. In the urban paper mill, they employ traditional techniques to make handmade paper sheets with a 100% cotton, acid-free fiber source by using recycled remnants from the garment industry. Oblation was founded on practicing a green approach and following recycling principals that focus on reuse and conservation.
