Maybe you already know that we are crazy for stationery. And this means that we have drawers, pencases and desks literally invaded by pens and markers. Among our favourites to write and draw there are undoubtedly the famous Mildliners, produced by the Japanese company Zebra, among the first to launch the trend of pastel coloured markers. Instagram’s most loved highlighters now arrive in Asian stores in a lovely, limited edition dedicated to Sanrio characters.
Don’t you spend your days browsing the stationery hashtag on Instagram? We explain to you then what are Mildliners. They are double-pointed highlighter markers (chiselled on one side and rounded on the other) characterized by soft and delicate colours. The complete collection includes 25 colour variations and a new line of brush Mildliner has recently been released. Needless to say, they are among the most beloved markers of stationery and bullet journal fans, both for their unique colours and for they minimal and very “Instagrammable” packaging.
The collaboration between Mildliner and Sanrio includes 6 different sets of three markers, which can also be purchased separately, dedicated to the most popular characters of the brand: Hello Kitty, Gudetama, Cinnamoroll, My Melody, Little Twin Stars and Pompompurin. It is not the first time that Sanrio and Zebra have made a special edition of this kind. The peculiarity in this case is that the colours in each set (already included in the main collection) reflect the official colours of the characters, so that Zebra invites you to use markers to draw the illustrations on the packages.
Where to buy? Unfortunately, it is not easy to find the new Sanrio customized versions of Mildliners outside of Japanese stores. But we can console ourselves with the classic Zebra Mildliners: on Amazon you can find both the complete set and the single packs of 3 or 5 markers at very affordable prices. Which are the pens/markers that are always in your pencase?
