WHAT'S NEW - at mini labo

I thought I would have a look and see what was new at Mini Labo since we last looked, and of course there have been some new Autumn Winter arrivals. In case you don't know this really sweet brand they are a Paris based company founded by Celine Heno and Caroline Diaz and specialise in stationery, paper, homewares and ceramics. New items include trays, wrapping paper, wallpaper, wooden postcards and a set of plants made from paper.

After browsing Mini Labo's own website I went on to see what their Japanese division are up to. As we know Japanese love Paris style and it's no surprise to find they are popular and there are a lot more products available over there. Here are some of my picks from Mini Labo at Belle Maison Japan.
