Welcome to Wald ethical handmade stationery and gifts. We create well designed products for a more interesting and organised life. We strive to create original gift ideas at affordable prices.
All Wald paper products are printed and finished in England (mainly in our home county of Yorkshire) using either recycled or FSC certified paper. Wherever possible components such as envelopes, cork and even hooks are sourced from manufacturers in either England or Europe.
Wald is founded by Jakob Creswell-Rost and Freya Hawtin. Both are trained in 3D design as well as studies in Art and Graphic design. Their previous brand WitShop has worked with shops including Liberty, V&A, RA, Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters. They now take this valued experience forward in developing a new direction and collection under Wald.
Made in the UK with the environment in mind
We manufacture all our products in the UK and produce everything with the environment in mind. By using recycled papers, re-using waste materials and buying local we minimise the environmental impact.
We specialise in fine line detailed illustrations and combine these with materials and production processes we give a lot of careful consideration to.
Choosing the materials for our products is often due to their natural qualities. We appreciate the appearance and texture of raw materials. We aim to stay true to their properties and enhance, rather than disguise, their natural features.
We use traditional processes such as letterpress printing as well as processes which give a crafted quality to our products. These processes result in products with great texture and tactility.
Our products are not designed to be whimsical or faddish, and in this way their longevity is ensured.
