Did you know that it's possible to make paper without timber and water, without chlorine or acids, without waste and using only a third of the carbon footprint? Introducing Karst Stone Paper from Sydney, Australia, whose paper is made of — stone! The paper is smoother, brighter, more durable than traditional paper and future-friendly, made from one of the most abundant substances on earth: calcium carbonate.
Express yourself in this hard cover, dot grid 100gsm notebook that is thread-bound with flay-lay binding and includes an expandable back pocket for storage. Your pen will glide across the pages because there is no grain direction, and ink never bleeds through when you use a ballpoint pen. The result is a truly pleasurable writing experience and they are available in various colours, sizes and formats.
Please note, we recommend using ballpoint pen or pencil with this notebook. Some fountain pens can take a little longer dry.
Karst Stone Paper notebooks are a superior alternative to traditional pulp paper that uses no trees, water, wastes, acids or bleaches to produce. They repurpose waste stone produced by the mining industry and construction industry, crush it into a powder and combine it with a non-toxic, recyclable binding agent to make the stone paper. Not only is Karst Stone Paper a better alternative, it's also uniquely water-proof and tear-resistant. Their manufacturing process is powered in part by solar energy and leaves a 60% smaller carbon footprint than traditional paper. Stone paper produces no waste in production or in the end product and can be recycled indefinitely, making it the smarter paper choice. Each notebook is a starting place to solve new problems, providing a blank canvas to do more and create more.
Karst Stone Paper was born in early 2017 by Australian founder and CEO Kevin Garcia whose intention is to respect people and planet; and to dissolve, rather, disrupt the paper industry. The company strives to follow this principle from beginning to end, transforming recycled stone into simple, functional and beautiful products. Karst slips effortlessly into your lifestyle to inspire you to do more and create more.
