Frequently Asked Questions


Q: What does SONDER mean?

“Sonder” is a recently coined word capturing the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own — populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you.

Q: What is SILK + SONDER exactly?

We’re reframing the traditional “start every year” planning experience. SILK + SONDER hand-curates an issue that encompasses planning, journaling, and inspirational content for each individual month. This means that you can start your subscription any time of the year.

Q: Is SILK + SONDER just a planner?

If you ask us, we’re much more than your traditional planner. But it’s truly up to you. If you enjoy planning, our calendar spreads will help you stay focused and productive on your tasks. However, each SILK + SONDER issue features content beyond that. Inspired by "bullet journal" designs, we include journaling prompts as well as lifestyle content.

Q: Is SILK + SONDER the same every month?

No. Each month’s aesthetic is different, but will always include planning frameworks, introspection, and articles aligned with a theme.

Q: What do you mean “Tea Theme” for SILK + SONDER?

Currently, our signature “Tea Line” will include issues whose cover and inside contents will be inspired by a particular flavor of tea. (eg. “English Breakfast” will encompass colors, design elements, and articles influenced by England).
