When I first purchased an Amalfi Watermarked stationery set, I did it on a leap of faith. I couldn’t touch the paper prior to purchase, or smell it, or test a pen out on it, but when I first discovered it on a website I was mesmerized. I could see from the picture and description it had the potential to be the stationery I had been looking long and hard for.
I wanted something elegant and refined for my correspondence. I wanted extraordinary. I coveted stationery that would be an experience for both myself when I was writing on it, onto the postman that touched it from my mailbox……and anyone else that touched my letter on its journey, all the way to the receivers final enjoyment.
After I purchased my first (of many) sets, I carefully penned a letter to my friend Judith, the one person I knew would recognise she was holding stationery perfection, and waited for her verdict. I was not disappointed. She adored it. Since then, we have both worshipped the ground Amalfi paper walks on, it’s that enjoyable……..
The paper I coveted needed to stand on it’s own, before my words ever soaked into it’s texture. Amalfi stationery has done just that and more ~Thank you Italy!
