I love fab and funky stationery; those bold and way out there prints that you don’t see in your average bookstore. Last year I was introduced to Marimekko, a Finnish company that creates clothing, fabric and stationery with original prints and gorgeous colors. I recently got some of they’re newest stationery products, and I’d love to share them with you.
What’s so entrancing about their stationery is that their journals are covered in fabric. It’s not only color and design that attract the writer, but it’s also the feel and texture of the book as well. Marimekko’s newest journals are decorated with polka dots which never seem to go out of style.
The large journal has big crude steel grey circles with a Tuscan yellow background; the pattern’s called Kivet. The smaller journal has the same crudely cut circles, but on a much smaller scale. This eye-dazzling print is called Rasymatto. Both books have 176 unlined blank pages just waiting for your thoughts or scribbles.
Marimekko Stationery Box
Marimekko has a stunning new deluxe Stationery Box set that includes six different letterhead prints with matching envelopes. The colors are bold and refreshing and make you want to read the pages. It may be credulous to believe that there are people out there that actually write letters, but yes, they do exist.
The Marimekko note cards come in a keepsake box and feature 20 different Unikko prints. Each print is vibrant, cheerful and bold, and there are no two alike. The notes are quite small; just the right size for a quick message. I like to attach one to a gift or a bouquet of flowers. They’re delightful!
Marimekko Box of Labels
Labels are one of the handiest tools in a home. They can be used on gifts, storage boxes, containers, kitchen pantry, garage, laundry room, office folders, and more. The set comes with 30 sheets – 3 sheets of 10 different patterns, and each sheet has four labels. I love the variety of colors and prints; they’ll fit in naturally with any decor. I’ve used a few of the smaller labels on gifts and as a return label on packages.
I’m hooked on Marimekko stationery; they’re stylish, decorative, and unique. Stationery says a lot about our personality and to me, Marimekko says sophisticated yet fun, bold yet refined, simple yet sassy! They’re perfect for my home and office, and I think they’d make a great gift idea as well.
