2018/08/10 January, the month of dreaming

In cooperation with Ondřej Buddeus we've been working on a new edition of our literary diary, which brings 365 tiny stories - one for each day of the year. The text is accompanied by authorial photographs by Filip Šach.

2018/06/29 A summer of wandering

Our wanderer notebook was created as a reincarnation of cultural diaries which weren't lucky enough to accompany someone for the whole year. To let them have their lucky break, we transformed the diaries into travel journals. They come with two fellow travellers - a traveller's letter (an origami envelope made of old maps) and a tourist badge (a badge with a map or a bloom for the lapel of your jacket)...

2018/06/28 Linger in Prague

In cooperation with Míra Valeš, the author of the well-known Prague Superguide, we have created a new Prague companion for all wandering souls - Linger in Prague. It offers forty spots, waiting to be discovered, as well as enough space to keep a record of your own Prague experience.

2018/06/26 Elemento upcycled 2018

Not every diary gets to serve its purpose. Some of them remain unsold and never get the chance to conceal all your planned vacations or parties... Unless they are upcycled into a handy notebook, in which months suddenly have no importance! For this reason, we present papelote upcycled, offering a second chance to unsold diaries.

2018/06/26 Second life 02

Our workroom has given life to a new limited edition Second life 02, processing an unexpected heritage and using handstamps to transform 200 hand-bound notebooks into original pieces...
The series is complemented with a range of blossoming postcards made of residual cardboard.
May this summer be full of second chances!

2018/06/22 Badges on the horizon!

The Voyager probe is reporting a new starry formation! You can see it with your bare eye, preferably from the entrance of papelote store :) It is formed by badges with traveller patterns - while some may wander with a bloom on their lapel, others may prefer the outlines of a map... Come and pick a star to accompany your journey before the nebula disperses...

2018/05/28 Do you have a knack for art?

This year has been the second year of us supporting a student competition Do You Have a Knack for Art?, which is a part of the special events programme of the Jindřich Chalupecký Award. More than a hundred finalists received interactive gift packages, adding a playful twist to this year's theme of identity. As well as the identity of each one of us, also the packages, created in our workroom, are absolutely unique...

2018/05/02 New edition papelote squared

With the first signs of spring, limited Papelote Squared edition returns to our Prague store - a collection of products that recycles residues from our production and that was made during the long winter evenings.

 

 

2018/04/23 We're looking for a seamstress! (locals only)

We're looking for a skilful seamstress for long-term external cooperation, who would help us with sewing cases and covers from vegan leather and tyvek. It's a work from home position. If you have a sewing machine, skilful hands, and are precise and keen to play with untraditional materials, contact us at info@papelote.cz. Locals only.

2018/04/18 Flaws don't matter

Not everything always comes out 100% perfect, but some things can still be saved! For example with handstamps - these were used to change several folders with little imperfections into unique pieces, which are far more poetic then those of perfect quality... That's upcyclation in real life. Come and pick one yourself before they're gone! They are for sale in papelote shop right now.

2018/04/16 Recycling - second chance

At the occasion of Earth Day, all of our products made of recycled paper are offered with a 10% discount! Recycling is a process crucial for our future. It reduces the amount of produced waste and saves resources. Even though paper is made of renewable resources, it still deserves other incarnations. Cellulose fibers are reusable - it would be a waste to send them to a landfill after their first fulfilled task...

2018/04/12 Velveta limited

We present a new limited edition of zipper cases and travel journalshonouring famous history of traditional Czech textile factories. It is made entirely out of local fabrics from Velveta and Svitap and zippers from Děčín, and sewn in home workrooms at Kladno region. A perfect companion for discovering Czech landscape :)

We wish a happy International Women's Day to y'all and we are adding a 20% discount at all papelote products in our store and e-shop to all the chocolate and flowers you will receive today. Just use a code "womensday" at your order.

2018/03/01 Spring inventory check

Dear customers, with spring approaching we feel the urge to do some cleaning and organizing. On Sunday we are getting down to our yearly inventory check, which will last until Monday (5 March). The shop will be closed on Monday and any online order placed after Thursday midnight will be processed on Wednesday (7 March). We wish you a nice weekend, with or without spring cleaning :)

2018/03/01 Spring sale

For the fifth year in a row we again collected all the items that, for various reasons, cannot be sold for a full price in our shop due to their imperfections, production mistakes etc. That is why in March we will be holding a spring sale, again under the motto "with mistakes but with love", where we will be offering a wide range of considerably discounted products.

2018/02/19 New packaging of notebook straps

Our key product has finally got a new packaging! The original cellophane bags were abandoned years ago and we offered the straps unpacked - however, then they lacked some sort of comprehensibility, especially when sold somewhere other then in our shop. For that reason we newly equipped it with a compostable card, which carries important information about the strap itself as well as about papelote...

2018/02/13 Fourth diary for Slovak National Gallery

Another cooperation with the Slovak National Gallery and graphic designer Pavlína Morháčová brought a new, already fourth edition of the gallery's diary. In contrast with previous editions, each dedicated to an individual artist, this year's diary focuses on the societal development during the break-through year 1968, commemorating the events of its individual days and their representation in the works of Slovak conceptual artists. These are presented as printed copies as well as inserted facsimiles...

2018/02/12 In good company

It's been an honour to become a part of the Fair Company project, which connects about 60 Czech companies that don't set profit as their primary goal, but are also concerned about the needs of everyone involved in business - the owners as well as the employees, customers, community, and the planet as a whole. The journey to achieving such goal has been as long as the existence of the company itself, filled with little successful steps, moments of shuffle as well as a few missteps. However, in this case it is safe to say that "the journey is the destination" and we are happy to share it with you!

2018/02/12 Papelote takes up composting!

In papelote we take pride in thorough separating and recycling of all sorts of waste. Therefore adding organic waste was just a matter of time. After initial difficulties with taking out boxes filled with tea leaves, coffee grounds and plant-based leftovers to our composts at home, we came up with a much more convenient solution - we obtained our very own organic waste bin and also made it available to other occupants of the house. Our shared organic treasure then makes its way into a local composting plant, where it's turned into fertile soil for the Prague's greenery.
