Established in Tokyo in 1946, the Life Stationery Company is dedicated to producing handmade paper goods of incredible quality. Difficult to find outside Japan, Life’s range of correspondence papers and notebooks feature beautiful, timeless designs along with superior paper quality and functionality. The commitment to quality, adherence to methodology and decades of paper manufacturing experience make Life Stationery an excellent everyday stationery choice.
What was to become Life Stationery was founded in 1946 by Yasuhiro Saito, after working as an apprentice to a paper manufacturer. In 1949, after wartime rationing ended, the founder wanted to recognise the new opportunities and future of his country and business by calling the company LIFE. The stationery products were initially sold on the streets of Japan, from bicycle-drawn carts. As the business and brand gained recognition, it was then sold via Japanese department stores and other established retailers. Today Life Stationery is sold around the world, yet the range is still made by hand – hand cut, hand glued, hand bound.
