A brief history of how Tusche - London came to be.
With a background in History of Art and Design founder Nora Oettingen previously worked for and with bespoke printers in Germany and the UK. She found, however, that personal stationery comes in big quantities and with an even bigger price tag; less than ideal for young professionals like herself, who are fed up with using their parents' home writing paper, change addresses like shoes, and refuse to buy tacky thank-you-cards. The next best option are ready-to-write card sets, but with such limited choice and very little charm the desire for something more current became clear.
Inspired by classic British wallpaper and fabric patterns, attracted by the mischievous and excited by small things of beauty we created our first collection of ready-to-write cards and paper. Voilà, Tusche - London was born in January 2015. The word Tusche means 'ink' in German (Yes, we know it sounds like butt and that's the way we like it).
We aim to put a modern twist on traditional stationery by combining illustrative draftsmanship with the best quality printing materials to cater to all ages and types, from the closet stationery freak to the most reluctant thank-you-note author.
Our writing sets are all printed, blind embossed, tissue-lined and gold-embellished by hand and are always made to order. Tusche products are great gifts and perfect for those wanting to switch things up for different occasions. Now you can indulge in the luxury of your own stationery on a budget and also feel good about reviving the dying culture of letter writing. Double whammy, congratulations.
Of course we also offer bespoke design services for all functions, whether it be event stationery for weddings, birthdays and christenings or home stationery and framed gifts. Check out our portfolio, blog and Instagram for further information.
