What You Could've Got
A peek into some of the stationery you missed out on!
Autumn/Winter '17 My Bungu Box X Erica Ward Art
Delve into the world of Erica Ward's beautiful, surrealist ink and watercolours...
My first ever collaboration with Japan-born, Kenya-based designer, Kangarui AKA Rui Yamashita. Rui creates beautiful, bright and bold African prints, mostly on textiles, and I am a huge fan. I was amazed and honoured that she collaborated with me on this. Kangarui products included a pencil case, postcards, and washi tape. I added some of my top picks as well including a simple but classic hand stithced classic notebook by LIFE Stationery.
The first ever box introduced our Bungu Buddies to the world of Japanese stationery with a hint of Christmas thrown in. Each contained Mount Fuji sticky notes, a Frixion erasable pen (the stationery lover's staple), planner markers, a mix of Mount Fuji and cherry blossom paperclips, and a lucky gold pencil — commonly given to school kids to wish them luck for their exams!

In Japanese, 'Fukubukuro' means 'lucky' or 'mystery' bag. After the first box sold out in December I received a lot of requests from customers who had missed out, so I created a one-off mystery box in January for New Year. Each box contained a random selection of products which included my favourite product — washi tape (masking tape).
