About us


Brownfolds was founded in 2014 by two design enthusiasts, Tapan Agarwal & Lipee Patel. The venture, based on the simple "Reuse, Reduce and Recycle” ideology, started as a project to create urban lifestyle products out of paper.

Using recycled paper and taking inspiration from origami, they worked and experimented with various folding techniques to create functional objects for daily use. Through continuous innovation and extensive 'hit and trial', they were able to find the perfect balance between form and function. The fresh designs combined with attention to detail makes their products really unique.

What makes Brownfolds' products special, is the creative home-trained team of differently abled people that help them turn ideas to actual products. Brownfolds aims at providing vocational training to the physically challenged and helping them seek an independent and a sustainable livelihood.
