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