Esme Winter Stationery

Esme Winter is a London-based designer partnership creating lifestyle accessories and stationery. Esme, working with Richard Sanderson produce items that are crafted with hand-binding, weaving and beautiful print. You can see their work here: http://www.esmewinter.co.uk/
They have recently printed their own stationery items on our lovely Flora Giglio 160gsm (paper) and 350gsm for the board. Flora is a 50% recycled paper (and FSC accredited) with natural, deliberately visible, inclusions & fibres - looks just great with this simple, classical use of type.  
The bespoke envelopes are 255x190mm (which I guess fit the notebooks they produce) and are produced on 160gsm, as are the compliment slips which are A6 (148x105mm) and the business cards are traditional 85x55mm on the 350gsm

The elongated cards (170x55mm) which could double up as compliments cards and bookmarks are also on 350gsm and are printed on the reverse in a variety of their 'trademark' designs.
Printed offset litho by Whitechapel based Aldgate Press.
Thanks to Richard and Esme for taking the time to send me some file copies of the various items and their lovely note. Just another excellent example of the correct choice of paper enhancing design.
