We believe that our unique designs and ethical appeal of our brand are keys to our success. We will set high standards of quality in our designs and be a trusted brand. We will build a compelling story for our users, which will be a unique advantage of our business in the stationery industry.

Explain how you (your team) will execute to make this idea/product successful? What gives you (your team) an advantage over others already in the market or new to this market?

We are building our resources and networks to help us achieve our aims. Our advantage is that there is no current company offering ethically made stationery and paper goods with premium, stunning designs.
