15th Anniversary Event

MD15th Special Event & Pop-up Store in Hiroshima


We're holding special events to celebrate the 15th anniversary of MD PAPER PRODUCTS™.
With our new 15th-anniversary MD Notebooks, which are made entirely of MD PAPER (including the cover and flyleaf) for even greater comfort when writing, and exhibits showing how 15 Japanese and overseas artists expressed themselves when told they could write anywhere they wanted, including the cover, these events are spaces for enjoying writing. To spark your creativity, there'll be plenty of items that will only be available at the events, including paper bookends, mortar book stands and packs of MD PAPER. We'll be holding workshops during the event period, where you can try making your own MD Block Memo Pad. We're looking forward to seeing MD PAPER PRODUCTS fans there!
