Coppenrath de Spiegelburg at Paperworld 2011
WGSN-homebuildlife reports live from the 2011 edition of Paperworld in Frankfurt, highlighting the top three trends to emerge from the stationery tradeshow:

1. Stitch detail: Handmade notebook covers embellished with threads, small pieces of fabric and other sewing accessories.

2. Ribbons: Simple cardboard storage boxes and stationery collections get a very feminine touch just by adding a ribbon.

3. Retro: Vintage drawings and fifties culture were a massive inspiration for prints in the collections presented at Paperworld 2011, especially for greeting cards.
