A Back to Basics Approach to Living, Warsaw Edition

Issue 77 · Summerhouse · June 18, 2013

For the past couple of years, the online magazine This Is Paper has been one of our favorite daily reads, so when founders Alexander Zakharov and Zuzanna Gasior launched their own shop we took note.

"After running a magazine for almost two years we felt the need to expand and step from the digital into the analog world," they say. "Why be satisfied with showing beautiful things when you can make them, too?" After trying their hand at creating bags and rucksacks, the team added a few items for the kitchen and home for the launch of their new shop. The founders are anti mass production; their belief is that "simplicity is king," and the shop's mandate is to "go back to basics, own just a few items that are made and handled with care."  See below for a selection of their offerings; for more information, visit This Is Paper Shop.
