“A standard since 2004, these spiral bound notebooks open completely flat for flexibility.

We use a lot of notebooks. Writing an idea down allows us to move onto other thoughts. The spontaneous mixture of thoughts keeps the flow of ideas going. It’s almost impossible to tell how a note that you make today will connect with another idea next week. Pressed Cotton cover. Made in Japan.”

Pressed cotton cover

Starch-pressed cotton is bonded to the cover of these notebooks. The colours will lighten with use and the weave of the fabric ages beautifully over time as the weave pattern becomes more apparent. The fabric is water-resistant treated.

Keep organized

The metal binding is partly covered, giving space to label the spine so you can keep them organized side-by-side on a bookshelf.

Use the full page

When the cover is folded back, it sticks out on the bottom giving the hand an edge to rest on. This makes it easier to write to the bottom of the page.

Spiral bound

This spiral binding allows the notebook to be opened completely and for individual pages to be ripped out.

Learning from Japan

“The craftspeople, suppliers, and small workshops found in Japan make things not to be found anywhere else. We are fortunate to work with family businesses that are so focused on their craft. Don’t put Postalco items on a shelf or in a drawer. Their beauty is revealed through daily use. They will help you feel good at home and be ready in a meeting.”

Ecologically Made in Japan

‘Mottainai’ is the culture of not wasting. This also means making something well. All items are made in Japan where we are able to find exceptional attention to detail. We also develop a wide range of materials in Japan that are worth pouring time into to create items that will age beautifully. Our wood comes from managed forests in Hokkaido. Leather is vegetable tanned to avoid using the toxic chemicals used in other tanning methods. Fabrics are woven in Japan with tightly managed wastewater and carefully sourced fibers. Our washi paper is hand screened with renewable Kozo fibers and any remaining pulp is reused. Made in Japan means tight environmental regulations for beautiful products that are much easier on the environment.

Material & Care

Pressed Cotton

“This fabric is made with the same machines that were used to make tent fabric. The base colour of the white threads will become more apparent and it will soften with use. To keep the natural feeling of the material we did not waterproof coat the surface. There is a light water resistant treatment. Cotton is a natural material so slubs and irregularity in the fibers are part of its character. It is possible for wrinkles to appear as well.”

Care: If your item gets wet, pat dry with a soft cloth to absorb any liquid. With strong rubbing the colour may come off leaving light spots. Please shade dry in a well ventilated area. If placed near air conditioners or heaters the item may warp.
