About Us

Rinea foiled paper is generations of passion in the making. It started as a tradition among the nuns in Germany who would make beautiful ornaments from a popular crafting material called Alu-Bastelfolie, which translates to “Aluminum Crafting Foil.” My mother learned this craft from the nuns at a very young age and she and my grandmother would make these ornaments together every year. They passed the tradition down to my sister and I, and eventually we shared it with our own daughters. I have been working passionately with this paper for many years, making beautiful Christmas stars for family and friends. Growing up in the US, I struggled to find the material domestically and relied on family back in Germany to feed my desire to create with it. I have always wanted to share my passion for this paper with the world and the amazing potential it offers for everyday crafting projects. This became a reality in 2012 when I started Rinea.

What makes Rinea foiled paper so unique is that it’s paper lined with vibrant, shimmering, and colorful foil on both sides, bringing the best of both worlds together into one incredible crafting product. It has the sturdiness of paper and the malleability of foil, which makes it great for everything from enhancing everyday crafting projects to sculpting 3-D works of art. Our team has worked with talented designers from around the world who have found many innovative and exciting ways to use this product. Together we have developed new tools and techniques to help you discover what we think is so special about this paper, and we can’t wait to see what else you create with it. With a variety of colors and finishes to choose from, the possibilities are endless.
