Shop Visit: Luiban Papeterie, Berlin

This was one of the shops I was looking forward to visiting the most in Berlin, and it didn’t disappoint. Located in the Mitte area, Luiban Papeterie is a neat and quiet shop with a great selection of stationery.

My favourite thing in the shop was this brilliant way of displaying envelopes (left). It’s a really bright and colourful shop… Very inviting!

As well as floor to ceiling shelves of notebooks, pens and pencils, and lots of lovely greetings cards (plenty of letterpress), there are a couple of cabinets (perhaps old specimen cabinets?) displaying goods. The one in the middle of the shop has a bit selection of tiny items, all of which really intrigued me!

So, what did I buy:

Item17Pencil

If I’m completely honest, I bought this pencil only based on the fact that it’s my favourite colour… But actually, it’s also introduced me to Craft Design Technology, who I’d never heard of before.  They’re a Japanese company who aim to use – wait for it – craft, design and technology to make everyday items. Everything has a number, and these pencils are No. 17.

And I couldn’t help myself but buy a little goody bag of items from the big table. It’s a bit like the pick’n’mix of the stationery world. I can’t remember exact prices but all between about 10 and 50 cents.
