Precision-cut edges and a satin smooth surface make these Japanese drawing pads a clean slate for any desktop or art space, while the recycled cardboard backing provides stability to your drawing. Functional yet elegant, the drawing pads are the recipient of the 2010 Good Design award, for their uniquely crafted and contemporary style. Each includes 70 sheets of tin, environmentally-conscious paper.

Use & Care

Keep away from moisture or wet surfaces to preserve thin paper. You can use any writing or drawing instrument on the notepad.

Production & Design

This Japanese company has a rich history extending back over 70 years, since the opening of the notebook bindery plant in 1938. The stapled binding is hidden, allowing for an elegant and clean appearance all around. Recipient of the Good Design Award, each hand-crafted paper notebook blends functionality with fine materials and understated details. 

In 1988, the company first introduced an auto-stitching line in response to the popular demand for DIY bookbinding. Steering away from the traditional drawing board, each product is a beautifully structured blank canvas to preserve your next big idea.
