Their first collection, aptly named ‘First Bloom’, set the tone for their signature style: four floral-patterned notebooks in soft shades of lilac, rose and tangerine. The follow-up series, ‘Fruit Garden’, features clean, crisp prints of blueberry, lemon, peach and strawberry – it feels like summer and looks good enough to eat. 'Oriental', the duo's third and latest collection, is decidedly more bold: the colours are darker, and the inspiration more east-leaning, such as tiger lilies and sakura. If you’re not keen on patterns, there are also plain pastel notebooks in palettes of daffodil yellow, mint green and pale pink, plus phone cases and collaborations with local labels Milktee, Pestle & Mortar, and many more.
