Creating Art From Thin Strips Of Paper


Of Things Pretty is a stationery and lifestyle brand based in Kolkata, India founded and owned by Rita.

Our Story

It all started with a single card when Rita's daughter asked her to make a special greeting card for her friend's bridal shower. She wanted a unique card for her best friend's big day that she can cherish forever. It was around the same time Rita had discovered this ancient art form of paper filigree known as quilling where you twirl tiny strips of paper to create three-dimensional art. She decided to use this technique to create a beautiful wedding dress out of paper and attached it on a high-quality cardstock - the end product was not just a greeting card but a miniature work of art. It was then she realized how these handwritten greeting cards if turned into art, can be preserved for years to come. One thing led to another and within a week Of Things Pretty was born.

Our Mission

There is something incredible about handwritten greeting cards, it’s the best way to capture life’s most precious moments. In this fast paced world, when the digital devices compete with our loved ones for attention, it becomes even more important to keep alive the tradition of sharing handwritten greeting cards. At Of Things Pretty, we give this age-old custom a modern touch with our delicate paper filigree cards which are greeting cards turned into miniature works of art. The beautiful sentiments and unique stories of your loved ones can now be preserved as a keepsake forever.
