Who runs the world…

Our founder Mary started Papyrus 40 years ago at 50 years of age. In 2021 we’re proud to still be female run, independent business with an amazing team, and stocking products from talented designers.

Celebrating 40 years as a family run business Papyrus is an award winning store, stocking carefully selected contemporary design-led gifts, accessories, homewares and cookware.

Papyrus is situated in Glasgow’s bustling trendy West End.  Our main shop has an emphasis on contemporary design-led gifts, accessories, and homewares – handpicked and inspired from the latest trends.

In addition, we have Cookshop. A treasure trove for the kitchen which has been a destination for enthusiastic cooks and professional chefs for over 30 years. We stock a wide range of essential equipment through to top end brands of cookware.
