New Mibo Stationery Range To Launch In April
GMC Distribution is to launch a mibo stationery collection at the Stationery Show this April. Innovative and beautifully designed it builds on the success of the mibo collections and their well loved and colourful characters developed by Madeleine Rogers, who founded the surface pattern and illustration studio.
In 2001 mibo launched their first collection of homewares. The boldly patterned lighting range was quickly taken by The Conran Shop, Habitat and Liberty. Further collections saw the inclusion of wallpaper and textiles.
In 2008 mibo launched make-at-home paper animal kits which were an instant success, with folk all around the world getting busy with scissors and glue; transforming the 2D templates into quite marvellous 3D decorations. Soon after that they released their cut-and-sew animal tea towels, which again proved to be incredibly popular.
The creation of these animal characters lead to the start of a collaboration with supercool French eco-brand Coq en Pâte. The resulting co-branded range of organic cotton clothes and accessories for children are now stocked in 50 countries. Collaboration with GMC Publications followed and a very successful range of books was launched.
April will see the launch of the new mibo stationery range. It is educational, fun and responsibly sourced. The range includes a scrapbook, jungle colouring set, invitations, thank you cards, notebooks, a height chart and six mibo book and paper animal sets.
GMC and the new mibo stationery collection will be on stand M428.
