As irresistible as a brown paper package tied up with string: a kraft paper dispenser at your fingertips. 

Above: The design is the work of George & Willy, a New Zealand duo devoted to making “life tools for enthusiastic humans,” from cast concrete dog bowls to pegboards.

Above: Think of all the possibilities: The kraft paper can be used for making lists, creating artwork, and displaying the day’s menu–and you always have a supply of wrapping paper and paper table toppers on hand. 

Above: The roll hangs from a simple steel bracket.

Above: The Studio Roller in matte black or white steel is $240 NZD ($184 USD); shipping is available worldwide for an additional $80 NZD ($60.71 USD). George & Willy also offer the Wall-Mounted Paper Roller in black on Etsy for $187.87 USD, plus shipping. It fits a universal 24-inch kraft paper roll.


Above: A 1,000-foot roll of Boardwalk Kraft Paper is $34.40 on Amazon. Paper Mart sells 720 feet of kraft paper for $26.24. Go to George & Willy for their paper sourcing recommendations around the world and to purchase kraft paper from sustainably sourced forests.
