Why We Love it

Consider this a "giftable" calligraphy supply kit that’s perfect for beginners. It contains the absolute essentials and a guide to getting started. The kit’s practice pads were created at the request of Lim’s calligraphy students. The set of 65 traceable worksheets (available in lowercase and uppercase) will help any budding calligrapher to build the muscle memory to develop their own designs.

Meet The Founder


For Karla Lim, calligraphy is “​​a beautiful, meditative, rejuvenating form of creative release.” The Vancouverite started sharing her work with the world in 2013, in the form of wedding invitations and day-of stationery (which remains a part of the brand.) E-commerce happened later, with the launch of Lim’s first product, the Calligraphy Starter Kit.

The kit, like all of Lim’s writing supplies, blends function and form, and brings her signature modern minimalist aesthetic. “These days, it truly warms my heart when people see the intention and the value of our product,” Lim says. “From the packaging, to what we include in it, the curation and the design of the aesthetics and how well the products work—that to me makes me happy.”
