Stationery Treasure is a small West London start-up, established in 2017 by Divya Venkatesh, that sells luxury greeting cards which are inspired by nature and generosity of spirit. Each product at Stationery Treasure is a gift made with love, and promotes the beauty and joy of sharing green and fair products that feel good to buy, send and receive.
At Stationery Treasure every design is special. Inspired by nature and generosity of spirit our products are ethically made from environment friendly resources. Stationery that feels good to buy, send and receive – a gift made with love.
Drawing from her multicultural upbringing, Divya’s designs are rich layers of elegant lines, textures, patterns and colours inspired by the natural world, South Asian culture and Swiss minimalism. She tells us:
“I first started crafting mixed-media collages in 2013 to unwind after a busy day working in front of the computer. The textured, nature inspired scenes are such a pleasure to assemble. A lot of love goes into each stage of the creation, design and production process.”
From composing and creating collaged scenes, to researching and testing materials for their footprint, to printing and producing small batches of items using vegetable based inks at a local carbon neutral printers – each aspect is carefully considered.
Supporting local businesses, Stationery Treasure works with carbon neutral printers to create environment friendly products that use UK-made 100% recycled / FSC certified papers printed with vegetable based inks. Items are sold wrapped in luxurious tissue paper and post-consumer waste packaging, avoiding all use of plastic.
As giving joy is at the heart of Stationery Treasure, 50% of profits from collections are donated to different NGOs working in nature and wildlife
conservation, or working to empower traditional crafters and women in India – causes which are close to Divya’s heart.
The end result is a thing of pure joy. An item as beautiful as it is environment friendly. New collections are released twice a year and are made up of small limited edition batches of greeting cards and notelets.
