About Us

Paper Turtle is located in a renovated 1800's adobe studio in the heart of Downtown Albuquerque, New Mexico. We create handmade, one-of-a-kind cremation urns for every member of the family from the smallest pets to adults. We prioritize customer satisfaction for the families we seek to serve. Our production methods are respectful to ourselves, our customers, and the environment, utilizing non-toxic glazes and recycled/recyclable packing materials sourced from local supplies whenever possible. Thank you for visiting.
