Lauren and Georgia are the two creatives behind the business Novel Trees, producing a gorgeous collection of hand folded Christmas trees using upcycled books. They are two high school students from the Kaipara Region, North West of Auckland who are enthusiatic about reading, books, art and crafts and over their years of friendship, they have discovered these passions together. Through creating their business Noveltrees, Lauren and Georgia want to share their beautiful creations with everyone. Growing up in a small, rural community made them passionate about the environment and local communities. They work hard to ensure everything is locally sourced with the environment in mind.
