Following EU regulations, from July 1st 2021 online shops must charge customers the VAT % from their home country.

All prices are shown including 21% (NL VAT rate); if your country’s VAT rate different, the prices will change accordingly during checkout.

EXAMPLE
Postalco One Year Wall Calendar €20
- will be €19,67 for a customer from Germany, as the German VAT rate is 19%
- will be €20,67 for a customer from Denmark, as the Danish VAT rate is 25%

Prices are shown including 21% VAT. If you are shopping from outside the EU, VAT will automatically be deducted during checkout based on your shipping address.

PLEASE NOTE
- This only happens after your shipping address has been filled out.
Do not use any of the Express Checkout buttons in the cart (Paypal, Apple Pay, Google Pay or Shop Pay): this skips the checkout process & therefor the VAT cannot be deducted by the system.
- Import fees are the sole responsibility of the buyer.

Description
It is not a secret that we love everything Postalco. And it is no different with this Postalco Paper Parrot Fish Green.

Their Encyclopedia postcards, their quest...
It is not a secret that we love everything Postalco. And it is no different with this Postalco Paper Parrot Fish Green.

Their Encyclopedia postcards, their quest and creation of mechanical systems to create entirely random paint patterned covers, their quality of their products, the colours, and of course the products itself, we just can't help but love it all.

These paper fish are a prime example of the depth of research Mike and his team put into their products. These kinds of obsessions turn into great products, just as their suspension bridge bags.

After trying to find out why a fish’s mouth opens so widely, Postalco stumbled across the fascinating mechanical structures of fish mouths. This Paper Fish Model has a moving mouth based on actual mechanical structures found in fish. Making this model will give a practical understanding of how a 4-bar structure works.

A perfect gift for everybody geeky enough to appreciate to learn something new and totally unexpected, from year 6 and up. Great for Sunday mornings.

Also available in a blue Dory fish.

About Postalco

Postalco

You detect something of a quest for perfection in Postalco’s work. A sliver of imagination that sticks itself into something not quite good enough and prises it open, revealing new territories within.

Postalco’s very first project began in just such an inquisitive way. Bag designer Mike Abelson found the bag of his partner, graphic designer Yuri Abelson, stuffed with awkwardly bent papers from her work. He set about making a better carry case for her papers, which resulted in the Postalco legal envelope. Soon enough, they packed their bags and swapped New York for Tokyo, in order to be closer to the artisans responsible for crafting their distinctive products.

Material values
Postalco products are often materially dependant, reflecting a precise history of the leather, brass, cotton and fabric with which they were made. We were drawn to these objects from the moment we saw them. From the moment we began stocking Postalco in 2010, we found the Ableson’s work special – touching in is desire for longevity and engaging in its aesthetic sensibility.

We’re a proud stockist of Postalco, and Misc Store has been carrying them since we first opened in Amsterdam. If you’re in the Netherlands, come and visit Misc Store to get a feel for these supremely tactile objects.

Nice to see you here,
but we'd love to meet
in person too

Misc Store supports
climate change solutions &
plants a tree for every order

Importing from countries as far as Japan & shipping worldwide has more of an impact than we would like. That is why we plant a tree for every order + we plant an additional 2 trees each day.

Furthermore, we offset the individual carbon footprint of our staff, including travel per individual under 8,000 km by car or 2 short-haul return flights annually, by funding climate change solutions through Ecologi.
A selection of these climate projects are shown here.
