Cheers to Inspiration Lab 005: Customize your Traveler's Notebook with 1.61 Soft Goods (6/18/16) June 25 2016

It's hard to imagine that one whole week has already passed since our Inspiration Lab with 1.61 Soft Goods happened in this studio last Saturday. Today the space is really quiet... I finally had a chance to go through some images from the event so I wanted to take a moment to share it with you! 

 
The idea of this Inspiration Lab was to create an open-studio gathering where our BK community can meet our creative partner 1.61 Soft Goods who is behind our Essential leather inserts for Traveler's Notebook, BK leather charms, Napkin Sketchbook, Origami Leather Basket... and more! 
 
Added (and huge) bonus: Diana and Wes of 1.61 Soft Goods offered to emboss our logo marks and favorite inspirational quotes on everyone's Traveler's Notebook as well as other selected leather items using the embossing machine they use in their workshop!

SAVE THE DATE // 1.61 Soft Goods Inspiration Lab // June 18th (Saturday) May 06 2016


We are thrilled to share that we are bringing new type of Inspiration Lab to our Baum-kuchen studio on June 18th (Saturday)! This gathering will be very special because we are featuring our favorite creative partners, Diana and Wes of 1.61 Soft Goods.

For the past 2.5 years Baum-kuchen and 1.61 Soft Goods have worked on so many creative projects together from Essential leather insert for Traveler's Notebook, Origami Leather Basket (which was initially designed as BK in-store shopping basket) to soon to launch Baum-kuchen charm 2.0! We love their design aesthetics, craftsmanship and maker's lifestyle.

On June 18th, Baum-kuchen community is invited to our BK studio/shop in Glassell Park to customize your Traveler's Notebook and refills (or any other notebooks of your choice:). You will be working with 1.61 Soft Goods using their beloved leather tools while browsing unique 1.61 Pop-up collection (some of which include artifacts that are exclusively sold through their website).

This gathering will be RSVP only and free to attend so please stay tuned for an update.

Reflecting on Inspiration Lab 004: The Art of Fountain Pens (4/10/16) April 24 2016

Few weekend ago, we hosted our 4th Inspiration Lab at Baum-kuchen. We love that we continue to explore different aspects of analogue lifestyle through these intimate gatherings. This time, we shared our love for all things fountain pens.

Reflecting on Inspiration Lab 003: Mail more love (2/7/16) February 09 2016

We had so much fun at Inspiration Lab on last Sunday. This time around, we focused on facilitating the Baum-kuchen experience of writing, crafting and sending a letter. I love working with Eunice. She sprinkled so much details in everything we prepared... from a special gift to each guest to letter crafting ingredient stations! ... And we had mini work stations for everything. Paper/envelope station, wax seal station, typewriter station, envelope making station... you name it!

Once we launched the Lab, the whole room got very very quiet. Everyone was putting a lot of thoughts into what they were crafting... for someone special. The analogue energy in the space was incredible. Some guests finished the entire letter including the final touch with vintage postage and putting address labels and dropped off their letters into our BK mail box (aka vintage milk box from Japan). I so so appreciate everyone bringing such a positive energy into the group... making the time we spent so much more. Writing a letter is a very personal activity. I am hoping that mixing the private letter writing process that is so close to our heart and being at the communal table brought much creativity and inspiration to everyone who was present!

We are hoping to facilitate and host more unique gatherings at Baum-kuchen in the future so please stay tuned! Send us an email (karma@baum-kuchen.net) if you are interested in putting your contact info on our Inspiration Lab list. You will be the first ones to receive the announcement via email. We then usually announce our studio events on our BK (email) love letter and Instagram

Happy analogue adventure:)
