Midori holds a sweet spot in my heart and was one of my overall favorite collections because their paper is of such great quality. Their products has me yearning for the days when we hand-wrote letters to pen pals in other countries and passed paper notes to friends in school hallways. The images are nothing compared to the tactile experience of holding the papers in your hands.
Like the vibe of this collection
Also like their blog, where they have some posts that show how to wrap stuff with fabric and other eye candy.
their pretty 2010 calendar
And that’s a wrap on NSS 2010 from me ::
I’ve been a fan for years. They have a great line of greeting cards, though they don’t display them online, which is too bad. Love their aesthetic and attention to detail. Bella!
NSS had more than just cards. A lot of gift, pen, paper companies as well. I especially liked Tokyo Milk’s atmosphere and collection.
Masha D’yans, pretty watercolors
I’ve been oohing and ahhing them for awhile now. Looking forward to their custom wedding debut. You can send in your photos and get custom paintings rifle style
I especially enjoyed the Korean paper stationery line O-Check that they carry
I’m seriously obsessed over this journal it’s almost voyeuristic. Want. It.
Now you can letterpress at home. The inks are not toxic like the ones used in letterpress studios. You can send in your custom designs. I reallly realllllly want one…
This is a beautiful sophisticated and well crafted line from Korea: ID&A ( it’s design and art!) The tiny images on their site does not do this brand justice. Right now you can find some of their products at the moma shop, like the cheese post-its. Ahh, to be a designer for this line…
Tara Hogan, the designer and founder is so sweet and I’m crazy about her illustrations. some snippets here:
