The story behind the business
Meet My Papercut Forest

I started working with paper in 2012, seeking to combine my illustration skills with my digital design expertise. As a lover of all things handmade, I decided to open an Etsy shop under my name, which proved to be a bit challenging due to my Latin accent (Silvia, Celina, Surina, Sylviana, Silvana Da Silva, that one was my favourite!).

In 2018, I decided to rebrand my business and came up with the perfect name - My Papercut Forest. My mother named me Silvina because she admired the writer Silvina Ocampo, and the name means "from the woods or forest" in Latin. As forests are my favourite place in the world, this name was perfect for my business. The three trees in my logo represent my three children, who are the air to my lungs.
