We came across an Instagram page that had the nicest prints and does stationery as well – our two favourite things. A textile designer, inspired by her travels, Naina Lamba’s prints take us to aesthetic heaven. Tropical, bright and colourful, her prints are a breath of fresh air. We’re talking about notebooks embossed with retro florals, adorable animal prints (puppies and zebras, anyone?) and tropical, leafy designs. Her Instagram feed is a riot of colour – and the best part is, you get to pick the print of your choice and she’ll design a notebook or a wall print for you. We’re already drooling over her hand-illustrated journals. So, if you want to gift a friend some stationery with a particular theme or pattern in mind, she’ll design something quirky and fun for you.
She’s designed for The Wishing Chair, Mavrans, Patternbank and more – so if you’re familiar with their stuff, you’ll know what we’re talking about. She’s launched her own stationery brand, Papercollect, on her website and we can’t wait to see what she's got in store for us. She also has wall hangings on her website so you can add some quirk to your homes.
