For the past few years it seems as though America has been in the grips of a British stationery invasion — and I for one am loving it! What a treat it was at this past National Stationery Show to discover designers like the London-based Katie Leamon. Her charming Christmas crackers are hand-rolled in her luxurious giftwrap and filled with cute little gifts including a wooden honey drizzler, wooden dice, colored pencils, a mini-grater, loose tea leaves and wooden golf tees.
Katie’s gold-foiled on kraft holiday cards put a fresh silhouette spin on the season, while the hand-printed Reindeer Wreath design comes with brown fleck kraft envelopes.
Unfortunately, Katie Leamon doesn’t ship to America … but I found an international stockist with ready-to-ship merchandise here. And I found a few fabulous designs at the beautifully curated Shadowbox Paperie in Chattanooga here.
Meanwhile, Anthropologie will be launching Katie’s exquisite marbled collection next spring …definitely something for all us Anglophiles to look forward to!
