À L'aise was founded in London in 2015 by Suzie; born out of her fascination with high quality paper and design. She set about creating a minimalist luxury stationery and leather goods brand, with a focus on timeless design and an emphasis on quality.
Carefully chosen papers are used to create our iconic greeting cards. Traditionally foil printed labels are placed onto the contemporary patterned cards before being paired with luxurious coloured envelopes.
Specialist craftsmen in Northamptonshire, using the highest quality vegetable-tanned leathers, construct all of our leather goods by hand. Each piece is then hand finished at our studio in London before being placed into an ebony box with brass wire stitching.
Iron gall ink is the oldest form of ink. This ink is made especially for À L'aise from oak galls, following an ancient recipe, a superb ink for modern calligraphy. It creates perfect hairlines and beautiful solid thick lines. This ink gets blacker over time, it appears almost grey whilst wet, yet dries to a dark ebony with excellent opacity. A must have for any calligrapher. 30ml. Shake well before use. Delivery times may vary due to destination *Please allow 1-3 business days for processing prior to shipping.
