stationery collection: Washi Tapes – Architectural Edition

Washi tapes, what’s not love about them. They are beautiful, quirky, colourful, useful and reuseable.


I was looking over my washi collection the other day. Why was I doing that? No, I was not admiring them, however much I love to do that all day. I was trying to shock myself into NOT buying more: there’s about 40 designs in my Taobao shopping cart, it’s a timebomb just waiting to explode.

Anyway, I came across these that I have been hoarding greedily, because I love them and some of the designs are kind of limited. After collecting washi tapes for a couple of years, I have slowed down somewhat (40 rolls in shopping cart notwithstanding), as I do prefer tapes with certain themes.  And architecture and city themed washi is totally right up my alley.


From top to bottom:

Kikusui Story Tape – Architecture series

Unknown from Taobao – Cityscape

Kikusui Story Tape – Architecture series

Unknown from Taobao – Famous Landmarks

Unknown from a shop in Tainan, Taiwan – Famous Buildings in Tainan, Taiwan

If you are ever in Taiwan or Hong Kong, drop by a stationery store or art materials store to pick up a few Kikusui story tapes. They are beautifully themed and designed.

As for the ones from Taobao, you can try searching on Alibaba (the global wholesale partner site in English) although I can’t promise any results. Quite a number of people do resell them on Etsy too, but it’s a lot harder to find there, since there are no brand names to go by.

  1. What? Washi tape is reusable? So far that’s one stationery item that I’ve avoided getting into, but it’s so gorgeous… and reusable. Maybe someday.
