About Us

Hello there!

Thank you for visiting my stationery shop. It's an honor to have you here. 

I started Desk Gems out of passion to bring high quality Japanese stationeries to the U.S. Whenever I visited Japan in the past, I always spent at least a day in stationery shops such as Itoya or Loft, and always found joy in discovering the most interesting treasures that would accompany my journals and planners. The mission of Desk Gems is to bring exactly this kind of joy to you. 

I was fascinated by cute stationeries from as early as elementary school. As I grew older, I also began to take interest in finer items such as fine notebooks and all kinds of fountain pens. In recent years, I took a deeper interest in journaling, and started using ring planners which gave a lot of freedom in ways to organize my journal collections. This journey made me realize that although simply owning many stationeries is comforting, the quality of the items also matters a lot. Therefore, one goal of Desk Gems is to provide stationery pieces that are both practical and high quality, and bring them to your doorstep.

Our shop features a wide range of selections that are mostly sourced from Japan, including fountain pens, fine notebooks, binder planners, and all kinds of cute stickers and washi tapes. Whatever you are looking for, I sincerely hope that you will enjoy your time here at Desk Gems as much as I do.
