Savor the spirit of paper reincarnate.


Savor the spirit of paper reincarnate.

Aromas of old Edo waft between buildings and drift skyward throughout the Nihonbashi Hamacho district, and on one corner the storefront of the popular Parisian stationery brand Papier Tigre offers passers-by a colorful display of its wares. The organic graphics of Papier Tigre’s poster product notebooks are likely to rouse anyone’s inner papyrophiliac. France’s detailed paper recycling standards contribute to the texture and grain of each notebook and the paper within, inspiring an attachment to the notebook as each rough page stimulates fingertips and the original ruled designs captivate eyes. Recently, paper products are regaining popularity as people rediscover the limitless creative possibilities and practicality harbored within old-school implements.
