The lost art of letter writing may be revived with help from the Soap and Paper Factory. A sustainable solution to personal correspondence, Soap and Paper Factory’s scented stationery collections are Green Seal Certified, printed on recycled card stock–and very pretty.

The stationery collection is scented with a vial of hand poured perfume that is phthalate-, petro chemical- and paraben-free. Prints, which are hand designed, Asian-inspired, floral patterns with a modern twist, are available in six designs: rosewood, verbena, orange blossom, green tea, fig and cinnamon clove. This product is available in reusable gift boxes that hold 24 note cards and envelopes ($48) as well as packages of six note cards ($12) and twelve note cards ($24).
