Our History

The Hummingbird

Legends say that hummingbirds float free of time, carrying our hopes for love, joy and celebration. Hummingbirds open our eyes to the wonder of the world and inspire us to open our hearts to loved ones and friends. Like a hummingbird, we aspire to hover and to savor each moment as it passes, embrace all that life has to offer and to celebrate the joy of everyday. The hummingbird’s delicate grace reminds us that life is rich, beauty is everywhere, every personal connection has meaning and that laughter is life’s sweetest creation.

PAPYRUS was founded in 1950

in the kitchen of Marcel and Margrit Schurman, who created products inspired by their love of fine art and commitment to uncompromising quality.

More than 60 years after its inception, the PAPYRUS brand continues to thrive, drawing inspiration from fashion, art and lifestyle trends. Our products appeal to discerning consumers with a sophisticated sense of style and an appreciation for the remarkable quality and artistry that have become synonymous with the brand. 

More than 100 PAPYRUS stores, owned and operated by Schurman Retail Group, and thousands of retailers showcase our products in North America. To learn more about Schurman Retail Group, or to purchase our products directly, please visit www.papyrusonline.com.
