Dutch Days Spotlight & Unique Giveaway: Dutch Kawaii



There a whole story behind Dutch Kawaii. First of all, My husband and I are the owners of the brand. Two years ago we started a project to make our own happy kawaii stationary inspired by the Dutch landscape. We contacted several designers and eventually we chose two of them to design a collection for us and they came up for these (upper: Sofie and lower: Sanne) characters. We took it to a printing house and ordered samples. We opened a shop on Shopify, also with the name Dutch Kawaii and started selling the stationery online. Eventually, especially due to high shipping costs and no promotional budget we couldn't get the company at financial break-even. We took it offline to some crafts fairs as well, but my husband didn't like to spend the little free time he had in this way. Eventually we quit selling our stationery and we both started new projects (we seem to do that a lot). We have very little stock left, so this is a truly unique giveaway. And maybe if I will get a lot of positive comments, I could persuade my husband to start again...

Enter the giveaway for a chance to win 6 full sized A5 letter pads and a bunch of cute postcards (I'll add some extras, so you'll get more than the ones on the photo)

I will contact the winner via e-mail. If I don't get a reply within 60 hours the prize will go to someone else. All of my giveaways are international, you can find the official rules here.
