Our leather-bound notebooks are handmade by Mr. Yoshino, who is Japanese designer and craftsman too.
Our high-quality notebooks are due largely to his skills.
Using bookbinding techniques, signatures are sewn by hand without cutting corners.
The signatures are bound in luxury genuine leather by hand and finally, a luxury notebook is born.
The signatures are sewn together by "Papillon Toji(Papillon sewing)".
"Papillon Toji" is a process of bookbinding which the book designer Ms. Kumiko Tochiori developed.
It is a fusion of European bookbinding and Japanese traditional bookbinding.
