Write To Me began in 2009 with $400. An Art Director and Account Manager coming together to create a handmade journal business with a vision to one day be able to produce a range of linen covered journals in beautiful colours and classic embossed titles.
We are sisters with an amazing supportive family who are always there helping us whether it be in the business or with our kids. Without them we would have never been able to work so hard. It has enabled us to work and grow a business that we are so proud of, while show our children that it is possible to make your dreams come true. If you want something to work, you have to work for it.
The inspiration to create our products came from two places. We both left home within four weeks of each other, and our mother gifted us with our baby journals and family recipe books that she had put together for us. A box of hand written letters are some of the most precious items my husband has of his mother after losing both parents when he has 12 years old. This made us very sentimental and really bought home the importance of hand writing and documenting our lives.
We worked tirelessly for the best part of 5 years to build our business, hand making journals and one by one sent our books off to print to achieve our linen covered goals.
We are so passionate about why we do what we do. We are trying to build a movement. One that encourages people to see the importance of documenting memories and what that means to loved ones.
A movement that captures life stories told in handwriting, because when someone is gone and you can hold their handwriting in your hands, it is like a piece of them remains physically with you. You can run your hands over the letters they have created, memories will come flooding back with the ability to retell and relive stories with moments that meant so much.
No moment is ordinary. Write down the now so it can be remembered for all the tomorrows.
They are not just journals. They are so much more than that.
We would also like to take this opportunity to say thank you for supporting our work. It really does mean the world to us.
With much love and grateful hugs,
Anna & Nicoletta xx
PS. We love tea. We think it goes really well with writing.
