Unfortunately, I was recently struggling with making snail mail work, blaming the postal services and their subsided will to actually get your letters to where you want them to be, because why not use texts or emails if it’s that important for you to get your message across? But there is actually gorgeous stationery out there, that’s (one reason) why! I wanna use all the beautiful papers, pens, and little accessories this Mitte store has to offer, and even if you’re not up for snail mailing things, why not hand over little notes to your more or less loved ones? There are loads of reasons to get one or fifty of their products.
Luiban’s products celebrate a slow way of communication, focussed on the added personal touch of hand-writing, which is a skill that’s slowly lost on us. Many of their products come from Japan, like the Ohto paperclips, pens, and pencils, and The Traveler’s Company’s notebooks and all the accessories for it, loads of Japanese stickers, masking tapes, glue, as well as Japanese letter clips in the shape of different cat and dog breeds!
Additional to that there’s baker’s twine, brass letter openers, bronze book darts, Carta Pura writing paper, KaWeCo’s beautiful pens, as well as the products of Berlin based Kami, who create incredibly beautiful business cards and labels to stamp or to hand write, copper tape, and ikebana ceramics. Plus very pretty letter weights, elegant staplers and punchers, postcards, stamps, basically everything you need for your next love letter.
