Inspired by 18th Century decorated papers printed from wooden blocks, our Papillon Flora notebooks feature hand printed covers from hand printed cherry blocks on hand made paper. Well, that's a lot of hand made, but it gives these notebooks immediacy and texture. This design is available with text pages in lines, grid, or blank.

The covers on these notebooks use paper from Khadi Paper. Khadi paper, produced in India, employs many men and women from local villages. They maintain an organic farm which is irrigated from run-off water from the paper mill. Their cotton rag is produced from T-shirt cuttings. The company also supports WaterAid projects in India and Nepal.
The pages in this notebook are sourced from French Paper Company, a family run company in Niles, Michigan. They are a pioneer in recycled paper production, and their mill is powered by fully renewable hydroelectric generators installed in 1922 (saving over one million barrels of fossil fuel to date). They make their green energy on-site. They also produce surplus energy for use by the local community. French Paper has the smallest carbon footprint in the industry.
Design may vary due to the handmade nature of this notebook.
