OBLATION papers & press
(Portland, USA)

It was in the year 1989 when Mr. and Mrs. Rich opened a shop in Portland. The store can be described as a boutique dealing with papers, and the shop is filled with original cards and notebooks that are made based on traditional manufacturing techniques. The shop is filled with this warm feeling coming from the paper.
Products such as cards with words from rock lyrics applied through letterpress printing and handmade notebooks made from handmade cotton paper are all made in Portland. Along with these original items, paper products that Mr. and Mrs. Rich collected from around the world are also sold.
They first encountered TRAVELER’S notebook at Merci, a select shop in Paris. They were in Paris to buy products to sell in their shop, and they fell in love with the texture of the leather and paper, and its feeling. Through the visit, they were curious to know as to how to purchase the notebook, and even took note on its method. But sooner or later, they were able to find out the method easily. After a few days, they coincidentally met with the staffs from Designphil at an exhibition in New York. This encounter originating through a travel resembles the values of TRAVELER’S.

Recommended Travel Spot From The Shop Owner

Living Room Theaters
After a big day at the paper shop, we like to take a relaxing stroll to the Living Room Theaters. Across the street from Powell’s City of Books and the Ace Hotel, Living Room Theaters welcome their guests to international indie films with plush reserved seating. We might pre-order a Mediterranean salad and glass of Pinot Noir, or garlic popcorn, which will be delivered to our table during the film. Before returning to the farm for the night, we stop at the lobby jazz bar for a local aviator gin and tonic, and drink in the live music … unwind.
