Despite recycling your rubbish, buying organic and using your jute ‘bag for life’ you might still consider design style over eco ethics when it comes to stationery supplies. Gone are the days when ‘going green’ meant a sudden penchant for ethnic prints and dung paper products as new stationery design houses incorporate minimalist design with environmentally kinder materials. The manufacture of recycled paper is the norm, paper quality has improved and now stationery product design is the point of difference. Some design houses like Gong Jang fuse muddy hues, natural textures with contemporary design, whilst others such as Ecobridge use Kraft minimalism in interesting ways and, like Paperways*, produce vibrant stationery.
