Paper clips - Tools to Liveby

At the end of the 19th century, different models of paperclips were invented to meet the principle of “It Fits the Finger”. It was therefore literally a question of allowing everyone to find a paper clip best suited to himself or herself. Truly original stationery and office supplies, these paperclips from the last century are among the most famous of their time.




Tools to Liveby, like Foglietto, is dedicated to bringing back to life the beauty of old office stationery tools, most of whose original workshops closed down during the 20th century. While Foglietto works mainly with materials from the plant world, Tools to Liveby has developed a whole range of metal products. These are mainly Japanese brass and steel. These “historical” paperclips belong to this first category. Each box contains ten paper clips which will help you keep your Foglietto memo cards on the pages of a book or folder. These beautiful stationery and office supplies are identical to the original models of the first paperclips. You can thus find the name and year of origin of each model on its box. They also take up the codes of graphic design from the beginning of the 19th century.

The models Ideal, Weis and Mogul are also available in our stationery sets Giallo, Blu and Rosa. Each one is an original gift idea!


Material: brass.
Dimensions: 25 mm.
Quantity: 10 pieces per box.
Available designs: Mogul, Ideal, Weis, Niagara and McGill.
Made in Taiwan by Tools to Liveby.
