A5 notebook - Banshu-ori 06
THE LIMITED EDITION BOUND NOTEBOOK
A well-made case bound notebook created with everyday use in mind. Smyth sewn binding ensures each page opens perfectly flat to an A4 spread. The pages feature a hand-drawn, light grey grid that is gentle on the eyes and doesn't stand out when scanned. We created this notebook to be the kind that fits on a bookshelf and becomes part of a treasured collection over time.
THE COVER CONCEPT
Feel the exquisite tactility of Banshu-ori textiles. The woven pattern known as hakeme (brush mark) is created by alternating a number of different threads to give a brushed appearance. The fabric is finished with two separate surface treatments to add a smooth sheen as well as a finely creased texture as if it has been washed over and over.
Shimada Textiles is a textile manufacturer with over 90 years of history in Nishiwaki, Hyogo, one of the main Banshu-ori regions of Japan. The region is home to yarn-dyed textiles (where pre-dyed yarns are woven into a pattern) and the company creates original fabrics working with highly skilled craftspeople across all stages of production.
This notebook is the kind that fits on a bookshelf and becomes part of a treasured collection over the years.
The soft blue-grey print on white OK Fools paper provides a subtle backdrop ensuring your words are front and centre. The grid will guide you in all tasks from writing to drawing diagrams and tables.
