Starting in June, stationery turns from functional to whimsical, thanks to Whistles.
Whistles, a London-based company, is releasing a line of stationery jewelry which will include a pencil sharpener ring and a pencil key chain.
The company is headed by former Mulberry designer Sally Turner, so label lovers can rejoice at having a piece of Turner’s work.
Implications - By adding some fun to these boring stationary items, the Whistles company cleverly gives the boring pencil and eraser new life. In the same way, it can be expected that businesses will take this idea and expand it to other mundane products, transforming them into potentially coveted jewelry items or other accessories.
