The PADORE archive consists of near 5000 items; mostly books, but too leaflets, images, folded examples and much more, from the 16th century onwards. They are in 26 different languages (Catalan, Chinese,Czech, Danish, German, English, Finnish, French, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latin, Latvian, Dutch, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Reto-Romansh, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish).

It is the work of Joan Sallas, a professional paperfolder and folding historian based in Badalona, Catalonia. PADORE relies entirely on people’s generosity and receives no external funding. If you have material you wish to donate, please get in touch.
