Ogami collection and stone paper

Talking about notebooks may seem anachronistic in digital times. However, the habit of taking notes on paper has not waned; on the contrary, there are still many admirers of pen and paper. The production of paper poses some sustainability issues and recycled paper is not always appreciated. A reflection on all these aspects resulted in Ogami, notebooks and diaries available in many different formats for different uses and needs.

Soft cover notebooks from the Professional series by Ogami

The first innovative feature is that Ogami notebooks are made of Repap stone paper, made without felling any tree. To make Repap paper only inert materials, a mixture of stone powder (calcium carbonate) and non-toxic resins (high density polyethylene) are used, which act as a binder for the composition of the material.
