Welcome to our wonderful world of ‘paper goods & printed happiness’ inspired by nature, folk art & printed ephemera collected from our travels around the world!
Sukie is us: Darrell & Julia, we met at art college and then started our business from the front room of our tiny London flat after Darrell graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1999. We quickly began selling our handmade notebooks and printed accessories to stores worldwide and have worked on many special commissions and bespoke items.
We have always taken inspiration from vintage stationery and ephemera, hunted down in brocantes and antiques markets, second hand bookshops and auctions, mainly in the UK, France and USA. Along the way we have collected a range of antique book presses and equiptment that is put to good use in our studio in the production of our designs.
The more we collected and shared our vintage finds with friends and customers, we realised that we were not the only ones with a love for collecting vintage ephemera, old notebooks and office goods (as well as mid century modern furniture!) so in 2019 we decided to set up a department within Sukie called ‘vintage office store’. Here we can share our finds with fellow like minded obsessives!
