Paper made of stone? Believe it. Add oil- and tear-resistant, waterproof and nearly impossible to tear to the list. We scarcely could process this all, too, as our pens slithered across the smooth surface when we discovered these on our trip to Milan in Spring 2012. We brought a bunch back as gifts for our team, and they were smitten, too. The handsewn binding and quirky quotes on the front covers of these books by Italy-based Ogami didn't hurt either.
No trees were harmed in the making of these notebooks. Water, acids, chlorine or petroleum were also not in the mix. Instead, this pulp-free paper is made of calcium carbonate, a natural byproduct of limestone, as well as marine shells and eggshells. (The fine powder is is mixed with a bit of high-density polyethylene to bind it.) So carve your thoughts.
Based in Milan, the brand Ogami (an offshoot of Group Cartorama) blends a high standard of design with innovative materials and technology. The company’s stone paper notebooks designed with studio Officemilano, a design and visual communication agency, and Paolo Frello brought the company international notice. Made in Italy and reflecting that country’s design bona fides, the notebooks’ super-smooth stone paper is free of tree pulp and eco-friendly. It’s a like combination of style and uniqueness that reflects the Ogami world.
