We're stationery obsessed at Teacake. Exercise books, coloured pens, highlighters, notepads, fountain pens - we've got them all and love them that much we thought we would share our favourite companies with you.
London based J Glinert is the brainchild of Tom Budding - inspired by a shop Budding used to visit as a child. 'It's where I got my supply of glass marbles and rubber bouncy balls' (Cool Hunting). Selling everything from fountain pens and perforation cutters to wax pastels and pencil sharpeners this Hackney shop is teeming with beautiful creative instruments.
Present and Correct
P&C first opened its virtual doors in 2008 and they have been a firm Teacake favourite since. As well as stocking their own designs you can also purchase items from designers around the world and vintage pieces that were purchased on sourcing trips across Europe. Their aim is to '…spark a distant memory (and) make you smile'. This is one you'll definitely want to check out.
Labour and Wait
Established in 2000, L&W is situated in the heart of East London's market district. They offer an 'evolving range of timeless, functional products for everyday life…'. We love their range of Pocket Fountain Pens and Cloth Bound Notebooks. A must for any design fan.
