Nature Print Hardcover Journal

We searched far and wide for an elegant, comfortable-to-use everyday notebook made of recycled paper, and this is it! With 100% FSC recycled paper, with durable, sewn binding, a protective waterproof hardcover, and a ribbon to keep your place, it's hard to ask for more.

We love the subtle dot grid paper which keeps you organized, but not constrained; this notebook is full of possibility. The fruits + vegetable cover features lined paper on one side of the page and grid paper on the reverse.

They are perfect for a range of uses, such as bullet journaling, artist pages, or a new subject in school. The 7" x 9" size allows you plenty of room to spread out and get creative, while also being a breeze to fit a medium sized bag, and the attached ribbon makes it easy to find your place. 

Designed locally in Portland, Oregon and inspired by nature, we hope that these lovely notebooks will inspire you to get creative, and stay curious!

Great notebook

I bought this earlier this year to use as a journal and I am in love, it has been so wonderful to have. I chose the purple forest cover one and it is so beautiful and inspires me every time I look at it and go to write in it.
