Murmur’s Shop

We never leave Japan without browsing stationery stores.  Elated that we found these paper cut wreath tags on the online handmade market, Minne.  The unknown artist from Okinawa carefully cut and pasted paper to create these delightful designs. The items are sold on Minne and on Taiwan’s handmade marketplace, Pinkoi.  For now only Pinkoi delivers internationally.

Tools to Liveby

We spend a lot of time browsing stationery stores and Tools to Liveby from Taiwan has to be one of our favorites.  They carry  the finest stationery goods and life tools from Europe, America and Japan. They have recently added their own designs to the collection hoping to bring practical and aesthetic products to those who enjoy the small details in daily life. They do international shipping so their goods can be purchased from their store.
