A few months ago, This Is Paper, one of our favorite design magazines, opened an online shop selling its own small-batch kitchenwares and backpacks. The Warsaw, Poland-based group has recently branched out: it's now offering simple, beautifully packaged garden basics mostly sourced from manufacturers in Poland. The collection is geared to those like the crew at This Is Paper, who "have to conjure a garden on a very small scale on windowsills."
