Budapest Stationery Haul + Mini Shopping Guide
The Brand – Bomo Art
Bomo Art was first established in 1997 by a small team of professionals with a passion for paper and printing. They work towards a shared goal everyday and that is to “bind book and man together and rouse their innate instinct to create”. Bomo Art Budapest aims to bring joy into the lives of all their customers by manufacturing beautiful, sophisticated and fine quality products. There is a workshop based in Budapest where all the diaries, journals, photo albums and stationery products are handmade. The books are bound using a classical book binding technique that add to their old-world charm.
The amazing graphics for all Bomo Art products are hand drawn originals. She uses watercolour paints and pencil techniques to create the fine detail drawings. The prints cover themes like botanical, animal, science, tech and vintage maps. The brand creates new print themes based on the incoming feedback from their loyal customers and partners.
1. Weekly Planner Pad
Planner pads are so useful and functional! This one is beautiful too with vintage botanical illustrations of foliage and deers. The size is around B5 and is used for weekly planning with seven columns.
2. Christmas Punched Tag Pack
These were just so cute! With Christmas around the corner, these were irresistible to attach to presents and send with Christmas cards. Each punched tag pack had five tags with two wraps of coloured twine.
3. Butterflies Punched Tag Pack
This punched tag pack had five bright butterflies to cheer up someone’s birthday present or to attach to a bouquet of flowers.
4. Hot Air Balloon Punched Tag Pack
Vintage illustrations are stunning, especially when it comes to hot air balloons! This punched tag pack, I plan on using for birthdays and presents.
5. Postcard Greeting Cards
These greeting cards had a variety of illustrative themes ranging from cakes, travel, botanical, butterflies, books, vintage cars and Christmas. I will be sending these to my pen pals and friends for Christmas, birthdays and engagements.
