Oyster envelope

Ideal for ballpoint pen, pencil and fountain pen. Paper is pH neutral. Contains 65% cotton fiber and made with non-chlorine bleached fibers.

And lined with an ocean blue.

Like an oyster

We don’t usually look carefully at oyster shells, but they are dignified and their rugged surface shows their experience.

Making the invisible visible

“Stationery makes invisible, but important things, into something visible. The moment you close a digital display or phone, your calendar is gone. That’s what we feel is not satisfying about some digital solutions for things like to-do lists. There is still a very clear function for paper and stationery.”

――Mike Abelson / Yuri Abelson

Learning from Japan

“The craftspeople, suppliers, and small workshops found in Japan make things not to be found anywhere else. We are fortunate to work with family businesses that are so focused on their craft. Don’t put Postalco items on a shelf or in a drawer. Their beauty is revealed through daily use. They will help you feel good at home and be ready in a meeting.”

Ecologically Made in Japan

‘Mottainai’ is the culture of not wasting. This also means making something well. All items are made in Japan where we are able to find exceptional attention to detail. We also develop a wide range of materials in Japan that are worth pouring time into to create items that will age beautifully. Our wood comes from managed forests in Hokkaido. Leather is vegetable tanned to avoid using the toxic chemicals used in other tanning methods. Fabrics are woven in Japan with tightly managed wastewater and carefully sourced fibers. Our washi paper is hand screened with renewable Kozo fibers and any remaining pulp is reused. Made in Japan means tight environmental regulations for beautiful products that are much easier on the environment.
