“I sincerely believe people appreciate a handwritten letter, no matter how long or short,” shares Trish, Owner of Papillo Fine Stationers. “It’s the time you set aside to do it that makes it more meaningful.”
I remember the last handwritten note I received— it was from Gel, when she sent me a couple of bottlecap accessories from Hodge Podge back in March. Eight months later, I still remember what she wrote because that’s just how handwritten notes and letters are— memorable. In this digital age where messages are sent through Twitter and Facebook, receiving something written by hand is delightfully unexpected, making it a little more meaningful.

Last Tuesday, the shy but incredibly lovely Trish invited a handful of us over to introduce us to Papillo Fine Stationers (pronounced as “papiyo”). Trish, who is a former model, has always been fascinated with stationery and letter writing ever since she was young. Weren’t we all? I can’t help but smile at my little girl obsession; I would save up my allowance so I could regularly add something to my collection. I remember one Christmas, my mom asked me what I wanted while we were out shopping and I brought her a stationery set. She shook her head “no” but come Christmas eve, after I had opened all the gifts I had picked out, she handed me a surprise— it was the stationery set! I was so happy!
Papillo Fine Stationers aims to bring back the seemingly forgotten charm of letter writing by providing its clients fresh and exciting ways to put their sentiments on paper.
Papillo started when Trish’s attempts to find invitations for her sons’ (she has three) birthday parties proved to be futile. She decided instead to design her own. She’s always been into beautiful, delicately intricate details anyway, and her impeccable style is evident in every intimate dinner party she hosts. From the main course down to the place cards, you can see that she puts a lot of thought into everything she does.
These photos only show a fraction of what Papillo offers. They have an extensive selection of stationery, invitations, gift cards, and note cards. To view the entire collection, simply call 0929-365-2328 or 0918-936-9854 and look for Emmylou or Theresa or visit the website www.papillofinestationers.com for more information. Papillo isn’t available in book stores which I think makes their products a bit more intimate and special.
If you would like to take a peek at the pretty things that Papillo offers (including their holiday collection) without having to set an appointment, feel free to drop by Cameron Tower at The Fort tomorrow!
