From Architecture to Design for Bibliophiles

I am a young Tunisian woman. I started online sales and graphic design during my years of study in Architecture. It all started with a Facebook page to share my bookish favorites and my passions. I made several banners for my page and my fans really appreciated my creative work. One day one of my followers asked me to make bookmarks for her with the assembly of my banner. I inquired about printing, laminating and I cut my first 5 bookmarks myself for a contest. Since then more and more people have been asking me for bookmarks on various themes and I found myself loving this digital and manual creation process since I make them by hand. That was in 2014.
Since then I graduated in architecture, I continued to create bookmarks in parallel and my love for graphic design allowed me to make several book covers for French self-published authors, then small French publishing houses. In I have not stopped wanting to develop my bookmarks: a ribbon here, a pendant there, a dream catcher to decorate or an assortment of pendants and ribbons to make a unique page bookmark. That was in 2016.
Once settled in an architect's post in a private office, I continued to make my passion in my free time. More and more orders meant that I had no more time for myself and as I could not give up my passion I sacrificed my time to be able to continue doing both. I have developed more products: cards, notebooks as well as my flagship product: The Reading Notebook which has been enormously successful, and which I realize inspired by well-known books by making a Fan art of covers (using royalty-free images). I also worked with new authors and publishers to see the number of my book covers skyrocket. I was able to do local book fairs by selling a considerable number of my products.
In September 2017 I officially migrated to Etsy and discovered this great community! I was able to take the opportunity to take more beautiful photos, invest in a good quality camera and take care of my staging.
In February 2018 I quit my job as an architect to devote myself fully to my passion and I flew to Paris in March to attend the Paris Book Fair and thus mark my transition to a new life.
During this whole journey; sometimes difficult; I learned to rely on myself and to find solutions to be able to live my passion and hope to be able to live it in my turn. I can also count on my brother who helps me with manual work as well as on my collaborators who draw great drawings that I can then transform into unique products.

Size information

- Bookmarks: The majority of bookmarks on my shop are the same size unless specified in the item description. Due to manual cutting a few millimeters of offset may occur. It is therefore possible to have sizes ranging from 18.5cm/5.5cm up to 18cm/5cm.- Spiral notebooks: The size with lost carets is an A5 format (14.7cm/ 21cm). After the cutting of the lost funds there are usually 5 to 8mm that are removed on 3 sides.

Wholesale opportunities

I agree to sell wholesale on the condition that I notify me in advance. A discount will be offered as well as fast mailing (within 4 days instead of 2 weeks).

Care instructions

The standard bookmarks sold on my shop can be used on a daily basis. However, intensive use of the same bookmark, its neglect or leaving it within reach of young children or pets can cause its deterioration over time. Plastic bookmarks may over time show deterioration of the laminating film if its use is not cured. However, it is possible to iron it in a plasticizer so that the plastic adheres again.Jewelry bookmarks, with pendants or special shape are not made for everyday use. They have been designed to decorate a library, decorate book photos or as a gift.
