This notebook is made by a manufacturer in Japan that has been in operation since 1947. The cream colored paper is printed with a light grey 5mm grid, and its smooth texture and bleed-proof properties will accommodate writing implements from pencil to fountain pens. The flexible card cover and inner pages are meticulously stitched and glued together by hand, creating a tough, durable notebook that won't fall apart on you.

Production & Design

This Japanese company has been handmaking notebooks for over 60 years. The quality of their products is due to a process that requires stitching and gluing their bindings by hand, creating a tougher, more durable notebook than other mass-produced, machine-manufactured models.
