If you like to surround yourself with attractive things, this is definitely the place for you. No matter if you are looking for a gift for your friend, yourself or a cute surprise for someone special – it is difficult to leave Manilla empty-handed.
This lovely shop is filled with original greeting cards, colorful wrapping papers, small boxes and other hand-made paper masterpieces. In addition there is a wide range of charming daily planners and notepads, photo albums, diaries, sketch pads and more. Modern and classic, vintage and floral, covered in leather or made from eco-recycled paper – these are just some of the choices that Manilla offers.
One of my most recent discoveries here are the witty and extraordinary pencil sets where each pencil is decorated with a brilliant Andy Warhol quote – a great way to make such daily activities like writing more special. And this is also the main idea of the shop – to encourage a love of writing and draw attention to the magic of hand-written letters that are much more personal than e-mails and phone messages that we are so used to sending.
It is for this reason why various creative workshops are organized here – you can learn how to write in modern calligraphy, do felting or make your own stamps and notebooks. Manilla – it’s definitely a place of inspiration and creativity.
