Wrap up your memoirs in Grandma’s retro curtains or a beautifully patterned summer dress from 1968 – or maybe that Spiderman bed sheet you snuggled up in as a kid.
Andrea Park from Prenzlauer Berg vintage boutique Memory handpicks fabric and paper and sends it off to the social therapeutic institution Kaspar-Hauser Therapeutikum, where disabled workers sew and glue the materials together into unique sketchbooks (€18).
Park’s new line of stationary also includes vintage GDR notebooks (€8), retro drawing books (from €1), pencils and erasers (from €1) from back when erasers didn’t smell like chewing gum.
Say goodbye to the Moleskine mainstream, pick up a recycled, locally made notebook and get cracking on that existential novel!
