Born in London, British-Iranian Taymoor grew up near the Portobello Road where he was the market's youngest antique dealer. His family name, Atighetchi, translates to “antiques dealer” in Persian, which is exactly what his father is. Inspired by his family roots, Taymoor went on to study History of Art at The University of Cambridge.
After a few years at Bain & Company, Taymoor set out to disrupt the $200B traditional stationery industry. In 2015, Papier was born with a mission to redefine the stationery category for the modern consumer and has since served over 2 million customers globally.
