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.
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.
This spiral binding allows the notebook to be opened completely and for individual pages to be ripped out.
Versatile paper with a texture that keeps the pen from slipping too easily and makes it an ideal writing surface to keep thoughts flowing. Suitable for writing or drawing. Page thickness prevents most show-through. This paper is ecologically made and chlorine free. Notebook pages are printed with Pin-graph, Postalco’s original 1x1mm blue graph paper.
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.”
“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.
