Pluspoint Case: Papel Craft- Greatened Customer Experience & Strengthened Reputation for Retail Success

July 17, 2023

Papel Craft was created in 1994 with the idea of developing differentiated and exclusive products, adding innovation and quality. With 28 years in the market, it has become a reference in the stationery segment, creating a new concept: a paper boutique with design objects. The project "Papel Craft Casa" emerged in 2015 with the launch of the home decor line, featuring a curatorship of design and differentiated products that value national products. In this project, they created an unpretentious collection of homeware that is casual and comfortable. After 2 months, the clothing line was well-received by customers, and Papel Craft expanded the project by launching its first clothing collection, featuring exclusive prints and new bases in flat fabrics, knitwear, and jewellery.

Currently, Papel Craft operates 13 outlets, with 12 of them located in Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Brasília, and Belo Horizonte, and one is an e-commerce platform.
