paper cranes

As a follow-up from my last post, this is the beautiful personal stationery set we were photographing this morning. These are actually a special commission for my stepmother, but we’ll be rolling them out for public orders soon.

Each personalized, folded card is paired with an envelope hand-lined in a different gilded Japanese Chiyogami paper. The intentionally-mixed linings echo striking Japanese kimono and obi combinations: often unexpected, but somehow perfectly balanced in their tonal asymmetry.

I think this is my favourite stationery set to date…and I love that it’s going to someone I know, because maybe I’ll get one back someday!
