Hello from Tabiyo Shop!
"Traveling - it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a story teller." Ibn Battuta
THE TABIYO STORY
Tabiyo was created with a simple wish – to collect stories. After a fateful discovery of the Traveler's Notebook years ago, we fell in love with the idea of preserving memories in marks, stains, and folds.
Instead of holding onto an object’s flawlessness, we let it live as we do. Through 7 am train rides and 7 pm coffee runs, we take pride in the scars that decorate its skin. Through being lost in the city and losing itself in nature. Through falling, but never breaking. Every impression, from the unruly blots of ink to the raw leather gash is a part of its narrative. From a lifeless item, it becomes an artefact of experiences, both bitter and sweet. A life story.
Soon, Tabiyo grew into a collective of quality and designer stationery that serve to tell that story. To the explorers, the artists, and the romantics, our products allow them to chronicle their life beyond red and blue lines. Drawing inspiration from wabi-sabi – the concept of beauty in imperfection – we found a different way of expressing character. And with these enduring creations, everyone can have stories that last.
Thank you for reading, and we wish you a great journey with the Traveler's Notebook!
