Felix Doolittle is a stationery company specializing in creating personalized papers and gifts based on artist Felix Fu’s charming watercolor illustrations. Founded in 2003 by Felix and his wife, photographer Loren Sklar, Felix Doolittle strives to elevate the very human art of writing. Felix’s watercolors are joyful—each piece is a miniature work of art.
Felix Fu grew up in Hong Kong and loved to draw, but often hid his tiny drawings behind a cupped hand so he wouldn’t get in trouble with his teachers and parents. After moving to Boston, Felix started consulting for the restaurant scene doing all the left brain and right brain aspects of creating and running a dining establishment. One day, he decided it was time to take a leap of faith to pursue his love of drawing. In 2003, Felix Doolittle was launched at the National Stationery Show with 12 sets of Themed Note Cards with illustrated envelopes, one of the first stationers to showcase a collection of full-color illustrations printed on cards and envelopes. Felix's illustrations, with their stories to tell, are the heart of Felix Doolittle.
Today, we still make our personalized stationery fresh to order. Handcrafted and hand-finished in our studio outside Boston with our signature materials, our artisanal workmanship and consideration is inherent in everything we create.
