Makers and Muses x Terrapin Stationers
Over the last year, Club Monaco has made a lot of changes , arguably for the better. A long over due presence on the internets is among the lot, and so far, so good.
The latest addition to their long anticipated url is a project/series/special called Makers and Muses. It highlights people who make good things and make them with their hands. As a craftsman of sorts, it’s something I can get behind and appreciate.
Straight out of the gate, Makers and Muses has come out swinging, highlighting Terrapin Stationers. If you’re familiar with Terrapin, then no introduction is necessary. For those at the ready, Terrapin Stationers makes some of the finest stationary, cards, and personal paper products out there. And it’s all made right here in New York. Midtown to be exact.
For nearly the last century, Terrapin Stationers has been offering high quality stationary, all produced locally, either by hand or on machines that pre-date the first world war. The quality of their products is second to none, much of which is owed to traditional methods and decades of experience. Quality aside, it also doesn’t hurt having some of the most aesthetically pleasing stationary on the market.
At the helm is Ted Harrington. It’s without question that Ted knows his stuff, and when seeing his client list it’s clear that I’m not alone in this opinion. Along with Club Monaco, Ted provides paper personables to all the other apparel and fashion heavy weights. His and Terrapin’s work speaks for itself, and I’m not just saying that because I personally get my cards made here, too. Ted is also one of the nicest and most humble people you could ever meet.
