Stori Dori began as an adventure…
Inspired by a community of creatives using TNs, Nilly was determined to make her own one to officially mark the beginning of her self exploration journey. Sharing her idea with a dear friend she inadvertently set the ball rolling thus, Stori Dori was born and soon grew into what we fondly refer to as our Adventure collection.
Adventures can take on many forms and meanings and starting with a blank canvas of veg tan Italian leather, there was no doubt in Nilly’s mind to use traditional hand-crafted techniques to produce each Stori Dori. Wanting to keep it simple and snug meant no square centimeter was wasted, even refusing to cut corners.
Finding the ideal planner is setting the bar extremely high, there are soooo many out there it isn’t unheard of that some (ahem) may even purchase more than one throughout the course of a year. But that just ends up being a tonnage of waste. And really annoying as you begin to realise how unproductive that is. Those who commit to a planner and fall out with it at some point in the year will also know how unproductive that is. But what if you could try a planner for a while? If you don’t like it, no biggie. Or if you need an add on to the one you’re currently using because you’ve got a few extremely hectic months up ahead… What then? Well, we think we’ve figured something out.
The Seeker collection’s journey began with two collaborations. First, the actual layout of planner pages. And secondly, the leather covers.
Inspired by the hadith of our beloved (PBUH) we wanted to create a travel wallet/journal that would inspire reflections and gratitude whilst travelling. It was designed as a traveller’s companion in hand so that you could also carry personal items easily and discreetly.
A signature colour of Rosewood was chosen to make this a stand out item for fellow Travellers the world over, so they may recognise one another.
One day, when Stori Dori has its own awesome flagship store and combined atelier, there will be bookcases lined with Signatures with oodles of collaborative themes to explore, mini projects to try, craftcations to take, each with their own participants that extend beyond our walls, everyone playing nicely together! Ahhh we can’t wait!
