At its roots, Casa Papel is a love story. Owners Cecilia and Nestor Torres are a married couple with a passion for paper. While researching options for their own wedding in 2005, Cecilia was dissatisfied with the offerings and knew she could create something better.

They opened their studio in Northern Liberties and have grown year after year.
