Ogami Small Quotes Notebook

The Ogami notepad range is a beautifully designed stationery range from Milan. The Ogami Small Quotes Notebook is teeny enough not to take up too much space in your bag but the pages (64) are large enough to sketch and scribble to your hearts content 930 x 210mm).

HOWEVER its not just the gorgeous design of these notepads that make them a cut above the rest, oh no. What makes the Ogami notepad range special is that they are made not of paper, but of…stone. Amazing huh? This revolutionary stone paper is called REPAP and consists of 80% calcium carbonate (CaCO3) and 20% non-toxic resin (HDPE High Density Polyethylene). The calcium carbonate derives from material recovered from quarries and building industry waste. Its reduced to a fine powder and mixed with special non toxic resins to create REPAP stone paper.

There are some wonderful characteristics about these notebooks… No trees were hurt in the making of them. They’re tree free!! Unlike traditional or recycled paper, water is not used in the production of them. No chlorine, acids or petroleum-based substances were used. It is waterproof (good for today’s forecast) and is WAY more resistant to tearing and atmospheric agents than traditional paper. And well, to put it bluntly, its smoooother to the touch than any other notepads.

There are four designs of The Ogami Small Quotes Notebook, each with their own famous quote on the front. You can choose from Dale Wasserman’s much discussed quote uttered from Don Quijote in Man Of La Mancha “Facts are the enemy of truth”.

Or German writer, artist and politician Johann Wolfgang “Doubt grows with knowledge”.

Next up we have Oscar Wilde’s “Life’s too important to be taken seriously” – a sentiment we all believe in at heart I think!

Lastly we have American writer, poet and art collector Gertrude Stein’s “A writer should write with his eyes and a painter paints with his ears.”

Quite a thought provoking selection! The Ogami Small Quotes Notebook are available with plain, squared or ruled pages and have soft covers and cotton stitching. Stationery at its most sophisticated.
