Papelote is an original Czech stationary shop focused on pencil cases, original notebooks and notepads, wrapping paper, felted products and a lot more exciting items and products.
Everything they sell is made in an environmentally friendly way, including all the materials they use. And, because of all this and the originality of what they sell, Papelote earned the Czech Design Award in 2011 for Store of the Year. This was when the shop caught our eye, but we only manage to visit the shop in December 2016, when we spent a couple of days exploring Christmas Markets and Cemeteries in Prague.
If you have been following Fotostrasse for a while, you know that we love to write about design and stationery shops around the World. This happens because we love paper. We like to touch and to write down on it, and this is why we needed to visit Papelote in Prague.
In addition to the shop, there is also Pape.lab that consists of a photography studio and paper workshop focused on creativity and as an idea laboratory. They organize workshops and lectures and, if this sounds interesting to you, keep an eye on their website!
Papelote is open from 11:00 to 20:00 during the weekdays and from 12:00 to 19:00 during the weekends. Take a look at the map below to help you find your way into the shop.
