Calepino and Bleu de Chauffe created PORTFOLIO, a handmade leather cover in which you can insert up to 4 pocket notebooks. The cover includes an elastic binding, so the notebooks become refills that you can change up to your needs. Its natural leather and the closure inspired by old French cardboard flap folders will protect your notebooks for many years. Each cover comes with a pack of 3 dot grid paper pocket notebooks.
The binding system allows to insert up to 4 different Calepino pocket notebooks.
Cut from the best French leathers, this cover is handmade in Millau (France) by Bleu de Chauffe.

Inserted in a cardboard box, the leather cover comes with a pack of 3 dot grid pocket notebooks N°4.
The raw materials used (cardboard and paper) are of high quality and 100% recycled. The cardboard shaped for the covers and the cases all bear the Eco-label “Ange Bleu”, and entirely recycled and void of any dangerous substances. The paper comes from durable forests, the paper is whitened without any chlorine and comes from 100% recycled fibers (FSC, PEFC and ISO 14001 labels). The product is printed in joy and happiness on Heidelberg printing machines with vegetable-based ink. Furthermore, in order to avoid using plastic, the notebooks are not stored in packaging film but in recycled cardboard.
Neither Hemingway, nor Picasso, nor even Van Gogh ever used a Calepino notebook – and for good reason: CALEPINO is a product of today bearing a timeless surge of quality. Brought to us by Fabrice Richard, the Calepino project was the product of a simple research into functional blueprints. Therefore, after having seen Denmark and discovered a passion for Scandinavian design, the founder of Calepino went to work for a French diary company. After a short spell of web designing, he found a love for paper creation. Thus, the Calepino notebook was born. A traditional yet technical notebook with an authentic vintage spirit. Doing this by privileging a local and responsible production. What guides him? The memory of those notebooks of his father’s, and «to create things as I wish they already were;».
