Fueled by a burgeoning young population, India stands out as a highly competitive market for school and office stationery. Despite the rise of digital learning platforms, the Indian stationery industry has grown into an INR4,000 Crore market. Furthermore, stationery trends have continued to evolve over time alongside the changing priorities of consumers.
The alarming concern for the environment has also brought attention to eco-conscious or sustainable stationery. Not only papers but even pens, compass boxes and other writing instruments are being recycled today. This not only contributes to ecological preservation but also allows manufacturers to significantly reduce their expenditure by repurposing discarded products, instead of acquiring new raw materials.
Sustainability is not just a trend but a necessity in today’s world. In the stationery industry, recycling and repurposing of paper products are common practices but there is one Indian brand that has taken it to the next level. Participating at Paperworld India 2022, Jalebi is renowned for producing ‘Make in India’ plantable products, including notebooks, cards, pencils, eye masks and even eco-friendly fatakas (Diwali bombs) that can germinate and sprout into plants after use.
