Since 2 months back we had a big new to give you, we could not hold it back anymore, but we waited to have everything ready until the last details.
We had only shown a video in the instagram stories, and now at last, we announce it to all ...
We have opened our physical store.
Finally, after a long time thinking about it, thinking that it was going to be another dream not coming true, ATIPIK FABRIK is no longer just an online project, now it opens up to the public.
And, in a time when you do not need to leave home because you find everything you want in the network, why do we do this madness?
The truth is that the first madness is to design notebooks, planners and other paper products in a time when everyone has the latest generation of phones and tablets, where there are apps for practically everything.
What are we, perhaps, an inveterate nostalgic? Maybe.
But do you imagine a house without books?
A fridge without the colored drawing of a child?
A room without pictures?
And do you imagine a city without shops?
Close your eyes and imagine it; your city, your town, without any trade. Without restaurants because your favorite dishes can be ordered from a simple app. No supermarkets because you can buy food from the website. No stores because whatever you want, you can find it on the net.
A deserted city, where only cars would be seen going from home to work. Why go for a walk if there are only buildings? With just a bit of life in the parks with children and people who walk with their pets.
I don’t want to be missunderstood, internet is great. It makes you reach people that would be impossible to reach. Ideas are shared globally. It allows you to learn things that would not be possible if you are not in some of the main capitals of the world. It allows you to be in touch with family and friends who are far away. Acquire products outside of your geographic reach.
But it can not (and should not) completely replace our reality. For all that, because we are romantic nostalgics we have opened Atipik Fabrik, one of our many dreams coming true.
For this project we have chosen Torrent, which is one of our favorite towns in Valencia. Did you know that it is the town with the most inhabitants of Spain? It has two subway stops, many shops and so much life.
You can find us in Plaza América, on a pedestrian promenade with a park full of swings in front. As neighbors, a cute florist.
Here we are waiting for you with all our paper products, with collections of cups, t-shirts and magnets. With the decorations for parties. And most importantly, with a big smile.
