MAMAN PARTNERS WITH PAPER SOURCE FOR CREATIVE, ONE-STOP CONCEPT
New York’s beloved French café, bakery and event space to house premier paper and gift store at Tribeca location.
New York, NY (August 23, 2018) – Known for its artfully curated dishes and offerings, maman is excited to announce its partnership with Paper Source housed in the café’s Tribeca location, slated to open Wednesday, August 22 at 7AM, making maman New York’s premier one-stop party shop!
An all-encompassing South of France café, restaurant and event venue, maman also offers home & office catering, unique gifts and thoughtful, creative classes like illustration, modern calligraphy and cake styling. With beautiful spaces that can be transformed for birthday dinners, baby showers, engagement parties and photo shoots, maman offers custom menu design and printing, curated menus, inspired seating – and now, an even more elevated experience with maman X Paper Source at Tribeca, the first permanent gift store within maman, and the first shared space for Paper Source across all locations.
“With the success we’ve had at marché maman, our retail marketplace in Soho that opened in July 2017, we wanted to do a more lasting collaboration,” said Elisa Marshall, co-founder and creative director of maman. “Although our roots are in culinary, we strive to continue to grow into a lifestyle brand. My love for DIY, paper, patterns and design has always been apparent in all I do (as you can see in our cups!). Paper Source is one of my long-time favorite stores, so when they contacted us last holiday season for cookie orders for their clients, I couldn’t have been more thrilled to explore the possibility of a collaboration together.”
Paper Source is a premier paperie and gift store offering a fine selection of artisanal papers, invitations, stationery, gift wrap, greeting cards and a selection of gifts and crafts. Inspiring all ages to “Do Something Creative Every Day,” the store will bring a new level of exquisite to maman customers and even more party splendor to events.
“A partnership with maman is a natural fit,” said Winnie Park, CEO of Paper Source. “We share an interest in inspiring creativity and cultivating community among people who appreciate beautiful craftsmanship and rich, personal experiences.”
“We are excited to co-develop a space with a partner who allows us to bring our product to life in moments of celebration and gifting. We believe the maman X Paper Source at Tribeca space will deliver all the celebration essentials — from invites to décor to wonderful catered dishes,” said Jenica Myszkowski, Paper Source COO.
Paper Source will work closely alongside maman for their parties and events, offering in-house services including balloons, custom invitations, party décor and more. They are also working together to have preferred rates when booking at maman and using Paper Source goods.
“Upon opening maman in 2014, we wouldn’t have thought of paper goods as an avenue, but it brings together everything that I love and enhances maman’s offerings: design, events, holidays and sharing beauty with one another,” said Marshall. “Not only are life’s best stories & moments shared in the kitchen & around the table, but they are further enhanced through the gift of a handwritten card, beautifully wrapped gift or a celebration where no details are spared.”
