Coffee and cigarettes, time slipping by. Half-built buildings here, there, everywhere. A ghost town in the past? Nah – Albania be on the up. Schemin’ for the future – one big lo-fi step at a time.

  • Our limited-edition November 2016 Kit features these Albanian goods ::

    - One staple-bound work journal with gold text readin’ “Republic of Albania Working Booklet” – the official Albanian timecards. Stocked in every shop, from corner store to office-supplies shop, people were buyin’ them up. Workers record their hours, what they did, and more. They’re also used to collect retirement funds and healthcare. One little notebook workin’ hard!! Each page features a grid design with a double-headed eagle. Measurin’ approx. 4.5”W x 6.6”H. 51 pages. Made in Albania.

    - One staple-bound graph note pad featuring finely speckled, beautifully textured paper. Can paper be both delicate and sturdy? Yup! Note pad measures about 5.75”W x 3.75”H. 32 sheets total. Made in Albania.

    - MAJOR SCORE!! One vintage dip pen dating back to the Communist era (1980s to be exact). A crazy-beautiful marble design is hand-painted on the tapered, lightweight wooden body. Finished off with a modern-day metal nib. Measurin’ approx. 8.5”. Made in Albania.

    - One vintage ink well also from the Communist era (around 1955-60). Holds your ink and stores the dip pen when not in use. Crafted from lightweight plastic and featuring a marbled design, the ink well sits on four feet. Measurin’ approx. 1.5”W x 1.5”H x 1.5”L. Made in Albania. (Color selection is random – but if you've got a preference, put a Note in your Cart and we'll try to make it happen!)

    - One 4ml sample of J. Herbin Vert Ink (Olive Green) in a plastic vial. (Not pictured.) Put pen to paper and try out your dippin’ skills. Made in France.

    - BONUS! Vintage nibs beat up by time – but we couldn’t resist throwin’ one in so RAHstrs get the full Albania experience.
