Inspire with Passion: Rajo x NBS


Rajo Laurel is one of the country’s top fashion designers, and the recipient of several awards for fashion design and entrepreneurship.

His love for fashion started early in his childhood, and was enhanced through his training at the  New York Fashion Institute of Technology and Central Saint Martin’s in London.

“Essentially what I wanted to do was sort of like really create something that was random, having this amazing experience of just random paintbrushes and paint techniques. I wanted something very meditative, almost like a prayer,” Rajo shares.

For his second time collaborating with National Book Store, Rajo has created a limited edition collection of stationery and accessories with easy yet authentic designs.

Here are the three items included in the #RajoxNBS collection:

Rajo shares how he meticulously created the unique design for his items: “From pencil, we decided to do it in pen and ink. After, I decided to do brush stroke. After brush stroke, I decided wouldn’t it be interested if I put in some thread and stitching.”

This hardbound journal is available for P295, and is ideal for anyone who loves stationery that has style and quality.

For writing in your journal, there’s also these gel pens. Each one has a different design, and they will certainly catch other people’s attention. And of course, they write well too. Get a pack of three for just P99.
