We’re especially proud to announce the addition of select products from boutique Japanese stationer Inkaren. When we first contacted Inkaren, we were told they had suspended international sales. We were so enamored with their products that we offered to freely advise them on how to best work with international retailers, and we’re happy to be offering their products as the first such retailer. We are carrying five different products in multiple variants. We’re sure that these simple yet thoughtful designs will help to elevate your creative efforts. We also love Inkaren’s spirit of collaboration, as their line was made possible through the partnership of six different companies.
The latest CDT order has arrived from Tokyo bringing with it four new stellar products. The CDT Wooden Tape Dispenser is sure to impress, and with it we’re including a roll of CDT Sanada Tape (also available separately), which looks excellent over craft paper. We’re also adding the CDT Business Card Case, coming in the same lovely cinnamon leather as the CDT Leather Pen Case. Finally, to coincide with national writing month, we’re releasing the CDT Jabara Accordion Letter Set, a uniquely Japanese product.
We’ve also brought back the much-loved CDT Graffiti Pad. We previously stopped carrying it after CDT discontinued it, although later we found out they still had a decent supply in dark green. The product will eventually become permanently unavailable, but we’ll be stocking it as long as we can. We’ve also topped up our CDT notebooks and pencils.
