About Cartoleria Bonvini:

Fratelli Bonvini Milano, stationery and typography shop since 1909, it's an historical location, recentely renovated and brought back to its beauty. A place where they design, selected and curate a beautiful collection of vintage and modern paper goods and accessories, they host workshops and events related to letterpress printing and typography, as well as the art of book publishing, writing and drawing. 

In their own words:

La matita Bonvini 1909 nasce per celebrare una delle invenzioni più antiche e durature dell’espressività umana: i suoi colori sono quelli della bottega storica, dei suoi innumerabili oggetti e cassettini – tracce preziose salvate dall’oblio.

Fidata mascotte per appunti, schizzi e scarabocchi scacciapensieri, la matita Bonvini 1909 racconta storie di carta e di scrittura, di stampa e disegno, di memorie di ieri e incontri di oggi.

Il motivo grafico dell’astuccio riprende il disegno di una carta in uso nella bottega storica nel secolo scorso, ora conservata nell’archivio Bonvini.

Made in Italy
