Paper Turtle is located in a restored 1800s adobe studio in the heart of Downtown Albuquerque, New Mexico. We are passionate about providing beautiful cremation urns for the families and individuals we seek to serve. Our customers value the opportunity to purchase one-of-a-kind urns that are skillfully and considerately made by human hands; the excellent quality of our craft; and our personal customer service.

Our production methods are respectful to the planet and to ourselves, utilitzing non-toxic, recyclable/recycled, and biodegradable materials sourced from local suppliers whenever possible.

Thank you for visiting.
