    Italian brand CONIMATTA has been on our radar for a while now, thanks to its beautifully simple silk pieces in all their evocative, hand-painted glory (ahem, bugs, whiskers, and purposeful “stains"). While those garments are definitely worthy of their own shout-out, it’s CONIMATTA’s bookmarks that have really stolen our attention. Yes, you read that correctly.

More like coolly conceptual art pieces, CONIMATTA’s bookmarks might be enough to get e-reader enthusiasts to once again reach for those old-fashioned paper book things.
