why this product

Stow your favorite photographs and mementos in this handmade Japanese photo album. The hardbound pressed cotton cover utilizes lightly waterproofed fabric woven on looms that make canvas tents, so it’s tough and durable enough to be worthy of your most treasured memories.

The 15 photo pages accommodate up to 120 3 ½ x 5 inch photographs, with five blank pages to use as title inserts or pasting event tickets and other ephemera. The snap button binding makes it easy to arrange and rearrange the pages in whichever order you prefer. 

use & care

Keep album away from moisture to prevent warping. If the cover gets wet, pat dry with a soft cloth to absorb any liquid. Dry in a well-ventilated area and keep away from sun. 

production & design

Postalco originated in Brooklyn, New York, and is currently based in Tokyo. Husband-and-wife team Mike and Yuri Abelson, a product designer and a graphic designer, respectively, began with an admiration for traditional mail, paper goods and Japanese craftsmanship.

They work closely with the craftsmen who make their goods, discussing every stitch and fold in the construction of their notebooks, envelopes and wallets, with workers who are just as obsessed with quality as the designers. Mike insists that a notebook as meticulously constructed as these can only be made in Japan, and Postalco designs their products as a reflection of the unmatched resources of Japanese craftsmanship.

Postalco notebook paper is ecologically made, pH-balanced and chlorine-free. The covers are made of starched, pressed cotton.
