To those attended art/design schools, the name STAEDTLER certainly rings a hint of familiarity. Long a producer of premium stationery and fine writing instruments, the Nuremberg-base company can trace its establishment back to the first pencils made by Friedrich Staedtler in 1662. Ahead of the busy back-to-school season, retailer Patta created a most unique inducement for those not looking forward to a new school year. With help from China’s Warrior Footwear, this collaborative product will include a pair of Warrior Club canvas sneakers, each as a scratch pad and etched by hand with STAEDTLER’s permanent markers. The design then underwent a waterproof coating process for durability. Because of the triple collab’s nature, a triple-x marking is on the upper of every design. In addition, each is come with a matching STAEDTLER stationery – Lumocolor 318 Permanent marker, Mars Lumograph HB pencil, Mars Plastic slide sleeve eraser and mini writing pad. Patta will also sells a corresponding graphic tee separately, all to be available tomorrow, July 30th, at Patta‘s store front in Amsterdam and Warrior Footwear’s online store.
