Shop Local: Lily’s Boox


Lily’s Boox offers journals in different sizes, inspired by traditional Chinese elements. Each step is done by hand from cutting fabric, folding paper, to gluing and sewing. They are made with love and perfect for drawing, writing, notetaking and even recording your latest d&d campaign.

Lily Gu, lì ? (jasmine), a Librarian by trade, is from Beijing, and has been living in Toronto since 2008.”I’ve never paid much attention to Chinese aesthetics until I moved abroad. I find myself pulled towards it the longer I’m away, therefore I’d like to share it through the books I make!”

Lily’s interest in bookbinding started in 2015, when she took a bookbinding workshop during her master’s degree at UofT. This year, Lily decided to combine her love for traditional Chinese patterns into bookbinding. It’s a journey of creativity, exploration and fun.

Lily’s Boox offers free Canadian shipping and offer $3 off for curbside pickup on all orders from the Lilysboox Etsy Store.
