There are collaborations that make sense and this is one of them! On the occasion of this new blog post, I wanted to come back with you to our lovely partnership with Mini Labo and tell you in a little more detail the underlying story of this six-handed work whose result you discovered, it a few weeks ago now.
I met Caroline and Céline, the two creators of Mini Labo, on the occasion of their tenth anniversary, five years ago now. Following this lovely meeting, we followed each other's work and you must have certainly discovered some of their creations at the store.
It's been around last year that we've been thinking about the idea of working together around a common project that could bring together our two worlds... This came to fruition on the occasion of the 15th anniversary from Mini Labo around an exclusive collaboration!
Our common passion for working with colors and patterns materialized around a collection of Japanese papers and origami sets with Mini Labo patterns and Adeline Klam colors! No fewer than fifteen different paper references and three origami sets available in three colorful ranges were created for this occasion.
Working together turned out to be obvious! After choosing three patterns (Angèle, Buisson and Jardin) among those proposed by Caroline and Céline, we looked at the color work and had a real pleasure in imagining the universe of this collection together. It was a great first for us to have new patterns screen-printed on Japanese paper and the result lived up to our expectations!
Here are the colorful ranges imagined together, Yuzu, Litchi and Oslo:
With its sea green and tangy yellow, my two favorite colors, the Yuzu range is my favorite! It brings a breath of fresh air to these hot summer days.
It is with the range Litchi that we tried for the first time printing neon colors on Japanese paper. What was our joy to discover the result upon receipt of the papers with this vibrant pink which awakens the range!
Range Oslo and its variations of blue which highlight the touches of gold that we love so much on Japanese paper!
All the Japanese papers in this Mini Labo collection can still be found in stores and on the e-shop if you want to let yourself be tempted and imagine pretty creations with these Japanese papers.
Also discover the sets of 7 15x15 origami papers (Oslo, Yuzu and Litchi) created from this Mini Labo collaboration!
We would like to thank you again for the warm welcome and your lovely feedback on this collaboration which seems as obvious to us as it is to you!
See you soon for new creative posts around Japanese paper!
