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.
