Handcrafted memo pad with 50 writing sheets shaved from a single block of Japanese cedar. Wood harvested from responsibly farmed, manmade forests. Cardboard cover and glued binding. Made in Japan from 50-year-old wood. (
Healthy, robust forests require “thinning,” the process of trimming and removing unhealthy wood and competitive, damaging growth. Taking the excess material derived from this process, which would otherwise go unused, this environmentally-minded Japanese company creates these unique, handcrafted notepads. Each page contains a different graining pattern to complement your doodles, sketches and notes. No two pages are alike.
The production of wood products like these have helped to reinvigorate a diminishing wood industry in Japan. Made from natural, untreated cedar, this notepad will decompose naturally, whether it is recycled, composted or sent to a landfill.
Keep away from moisture, as this will warp the pages. You can use any ballpoint pen, as well as marker, rollerball or pencil on the notepad.
This Japanese company seeks to reinvigorate the country’s wood industry by taking underused forests and creating food wraps, disposable plates and notepads. The demand for wood products during World War II left a surplus of manmade forests in Japan – and, if they are managed, used and replanted properly, these forests can be a sustainable resource. Using sheets of shaved, untreated wood—as opposed to mulched or processed materials—the design of these products maintains a connection to the original trees planted in 1961 by preserving the natural grain patterns.
