My name is Sofie and I am the owner of Mofelito Paperito, a (web) shop dedicated to stationery and all kinds of paper goods.
It all started in 2014 with the launch of a webshop. Since November 2017 I opened a brick-and-mortar shop right in the centre of Brussels. Or no, wait. It started way before since I’ve always had a fascination for anything to do with paper. One of my favourite playtime activities as a child, was 'office' or 'library'. Going with my father to his office and play with leftover stationery was like going to a party.
I still adore the feel of paper and get very excited about fountain pens and pencils. I can’t possibly walk out of a museum without buying a pencil.
Both on this website and in the store, you’ll find a personal selection of stationery products I like, made by designers from around the globe, produced on a small scale, often made by hand and where possible made from recycled paper with a FSC label and soy-based or natural ink.
Quality and aesthetics are key and this is why all products are tested and approved. I am constantly hunting new products and so the range is constantly changing, although some top products remain. I simply want to keep the selection fresh and show new exciting products to you, my customers.
What's with the weird name?
When I was a child, my sister invented a nick name for me: Moffel, which doesn’t mean anything but which kind of fitted, and she still calls me that.
So when looking for names for the webshop I came up with Mofelito, which also has no meaning whatsoever.
