why this product

A notebook should be hardworking and willing to go anywhere (to the wildest corners of the world possible, along with your ideas). So it makes sense to have one that's unpretentious, simple, and robust. These notebooks are made of 100% recycled kraft paper with a cardboard cover, and they're pocket-sized, for your jeans or the front of your jacket. Just right for the person who finds their best ideas hit them when they're away from their desk. The books were inspired by a man who, after working for years in the stationery industry, felt the urge to bring back the pocket 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, then slide into the back pocket of his sawdusty jeans. For some people, like tinkerers and artists, there are some thoughts it doesn't make sense to write down anywhere but on a piece of paper. Currently the notebooks are made 100% in Nantes, France, with recycled kraft paper that's been paste bleached without chlorine. The notebooks come in packs of three, one for each month of a season. Take them anywhere and everywhere. They're meant to stay as close to you as your revolutionary ideas.

use & care

Graph paper is useful for designers and tinkerers who require gridlines for complex plotting. All varieties of notes can be taken in the graph book: sketches, graphs, charts, equations - the lines are right for genius nerds who sometimes only think in experimental diagrams.

production & design

The creator of these notebooks, a Frenchman named Fabrice, is the sole producer and craftsman. All of his notebooks are made 100% in France out of recycled kraft paper that's been paste bleached without chlorine. The cardboard covers are manufactured in Creuse, in a factory that's been making cardboard since 1927. By utilizing local expertise and reputable family businesses, he has reduced his company's carbon footprint by minimizing the transport necessary to the manufacturing of the products.
