The “Portfolio” by Calepino makes an ideal gift for stylish stationery lovers. This cover-case was made by hand in Milliau, France, by Bleu de Chauffe. The cover was made out of vegetable tanned leather, and has space for up to four Calepino Papier Blanc original notebooks inside with an elastic binding to ensure that Portfolio Papier Blanc has all the flexibility you need to store your notes.
Calepino notebooks are the quintessential creative tool, and are made to be the perfect companion to daily life with a versatile design and signature style. Whether you’re scribbling down ideas for a novel at a bus stop, logging a memorable experience in your diary, or reminding yourself to buy bread on the way home, a calepino notebook is ready to travel the world with you.
Calepino notebooks are made in France. The company is based in Nantes, Loire-Atlantique, and supports local enterprise by printing all of their notebooks through a family business based in this region. Sustainability is also important to Calepino, and so each of these notebooks is made from 100% certified recycled cardboard and paper, ensuring that nothing goes to waste. The ink used on the notebooks comes from vegetables, and Calepino never use plastic wrap to store their notebooks, preferring instead to opt for cardboard.
Calepino are one of the last remaining practitioners of their signature letterpress technique in the French tradition, and we loved the intricate, thoughtful, and passionate way they developed their notebooks from the minute we laid eyes on them.
