A notebook that is simple and long lasting is one you’ll have on you at all times, whenever inspiration strikes. This Calepino model is journal size - bigger than pocket dimensions, but small enough to bring along in your bag.

The blank paper is ideal for the person who likes a clean slate to write on and draw outside the lines. Each comes with a removable blue belly band, as well as a playfully worded postcard to keep or send to a bon ami.

These blank notebooks are made in Nantes, France, using 100% recycled paper with letterpress printed cardboard cover. The pages are whitened without chlorine and printed using vegetable-based ink.

The books were inspired by a man who, after working for years in the stationery industry, felt the urge to bring back the notebooks he'd seen as a child. There was something irreplaceable about the stamped brown books his father would write and sketch in while at work in his carpenter's shop.

Use & Care

The plain paper is useful for designers, illustrators and any other creative minds who want to sketch freely on unlined white pages. All manner of notes can be taken…

Production & Design

The creator of these notebooks, a Frenchman named Fabrice, is the sole producer and craftsman. All his notebooks are made entirely in France out of recycled kraft paper that's been paste-bleached without chlorine. The letterpress printed cardboard covers are manufactured in a factory in Creuse that's been making cardboard since 1927.

By utilizing local expertise and reputable family businesses, and therefore minimizing the transportation of materials necessary to the manufacturing process, he significantly reduced his company’s carbon footprint. The notebooks are also Ange Bleu certified, the first worldwide eco-label certification.
