Tereza Hradílková studied Architecture and later combined her professional knowledge with her interest in paper crafts when she  created Porigami.cz. She started to experiment with paper during her stay in Japan between 2007 and 2008. She then worked at an international architecture studio in Hong Kong but soon decided to focus on work with paper full time. She has continued creating custom made greeting cards, invitation cards and paper installations since her return to Prague. Her 3D cards and installations appeal to a wide range of customers who appreciate her specific aesthetics. In recent years she has started to develop designs for children.
