CARTA PURA conveys a strong passion for colour, form and material with a clear and simplistic visual language. Their staff members themselves design the products after years of working with paper. From the initial idea and material tests until the release of a finished product, many months, sometimes years pass by. In order to maintain their high-quality standard, CARTA PURA continuously reinvents their products. All CARTA PURA items are made in Germany, and most of them are manufactured in Munich or nearby.

So how do you recognize a CARTA PURA product?
Not at first glance, through eye-catching packaging or striking labels, but mostly at second glance, after your hands have registered a precisely made book edge or after you have run your fingers over the smoothly calendered paper surface. Once people become sensitive to these features and recognize the quality by means of their senses, they are hooked.

At Misc Store we carry a selection of CARTA PURA's drawing blocks and clips — perfect for everyday drawing or experimenting with wet paint techniques.

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.

Investing in projects focused on carbon avoidance is not the same as simply buying carbon offset certificates, that is why we have chosen to work with Ecologi.
