Japanese Cuteness

Magnificent Minis!

Japan is known for minutiae. A tiny slither of land, basically sitting above the meeting place of two very large tectonic plates, an island volcano, with only 15% arable land...or something like that. Basically, it is the most ingrained cultural precept that a Japanese is not to waste anything...and so they learned to make things efficiently and small. Applied to stationery, that means cute! Check out the new Mini Cotton Roll Pencil Cases or our whole Japanese Stationery Shop...it's full of cuteness!

Writing instruments all snug and cosy!

Pink & Khaki is close to Pink & Brown - my favourite colour match.

Ain't you Grand.... "Archie Grand"

A true cult notebook for charlatans, scoundrels and luminaries! The bright, bold and cheeky Archie Grand collection has recently arrived at NoteMaker.

We love the dedicated covers for bosses, bloggers, designers, artists, shopaholics, actors, chefs, lovers, architects, models, pacifists, writers, vegetarians and politicians you’ve met and liked! Or didn't perhaps...

Read on for our inaugural Archie Grand Awards!






Whatever the profession, Archie Grand is bound to have dedicated a notebook to it. The 120 page, thread-bound, hard cover notebooks are colourful and quirky making the perfect christmas gift for everyone this year!
