2019/04/18 The production of a photo album

Before a photo album reaches your home, ready to preserve your fondest memories, its journey is a rather long one, consisting of many precise steps.

2018/11/12 Second life

It's been a year since we've inherited this unexpected paper treasure. These notebooks were given to us by our locksmith, who inherited them from his uncle who once hand-bound and then left them in boxes in a corner of a garage, where they were catching dust for years. Needless to say, we were very pleased to adopt them; we just added some final touches and created a limited edition of unique, numbered notebooks. We have already created three editions - winter, blossoming and the upcoming autumn edition.

2018/08/31 Paper matters

Paper as such is considered a renewable source, which makes it more eco-friendly than other materials - however, it is necessary to think further about its ecological impact. Not all paper is the same. What plays an important role is also the origin of wood used to make cellulose as well as the volume of water used in its production, the extent of pollution coming from the paper mill, or also the distance the paper has to travel to reach the customer. For that reason, for our production, we select materials coming from ecologically sustainable forestry. A major part of our paper comes from a Nordic paper mill named Arctic paper, known for maintaining the highest ecological standards...

2018/06/29 A summer of wandering

Our wanderer notebook was created as a reincarnation of cultural diaries which weren't lucky enough to accompany someone for the whole year. To let them have their lucky break, we transformed the diaries into travel journals. They come with two fellow travellers - a traveller's letter (an origami envelope made of old maps) and a tourist badge (a badge with a map or a bloom for the lapel of your jacket)...
