Two young artists with a common love for books and a shared passion for craft, have joined forces to introduce the world to a new range of environmentally friendly notebooks. Born from the enjoyment of making beautiful things with their hands, and spreading good vibes, their bespoke notebooks will be the ideal home for your thoughts.
Take a look at our currently available designs below.
These rounded spine notebooks are covered using Cordenon’s distinctive ‘leatherlike’ paper, making them a perfect cruelty free and environmentally friendly alternative. This range is perfect for corporate customary notebooks. Available in A5 and A6, each book contains 320 pages, and features hand marbled, tweed textured end sheets.
Stab Bind Notepad
This stylish and affordable 100 page notepad is ideal for avid note-takers and writers. The Japanese stab bind technique is traditionally glue free, instead making use of stitched patterns to secure the spine. The cover paper, ‘Plike’ is an FSC approved, plastic-like paper which allows stray water droplets or pieces of dirt to be wiped away simply and easily. This makes for an ideal gift for aspiring writers and a great note pad for students.
Custom Printed Book Textile
These hardcover notebooks, available in A6 and A5, are produced in limited editions using screenprinted designs and motifs from the work of local artists. Each book is accompanied by an editioned, screenprinted postcard, and a description of the artist’s work. Pictured here is an image from our very own Madeleine Dymond’s “Radio Gain”, a short story soon to be produced in a limited edition of its own.
Colour Blocked Book Textile
Introduced for their highly customisable quality, our range of colour blocked book textile notebooks is perfect for any location, occasion or setting. Look out for the ‘interior spine’ of this book, which adds an extra colour accent.
Shwe Shwe Notebooks
Our hardcover notebooks, covered in 3Cats Shwe Shwe, were the ﬁrst of our signature ranges. 3Cats is the original Shwe Shwe brand, created by DaGama Textiles in the Eastern Cape.
These handmade clamshell boxes are the perfect way to present and preserve any book. Our retail box sets currently come with three books of any one of our signature ranges. These boxes are customisable to be any shape and size, to house any precious object. These handmade boxes are a perfect way to present gifts and are ideal for corporate customisation.
