The colors were chosen to evoke the image of trees in a forest.
It is a notebook that makes keeping a diary, taking notes, and writing fun.
A notebook made from Kyogi (経木)
”Kyogi" is made of wood shaved thin like paper, and has been used as a traditional wrapping material in Japan.
Originally used to write sutras, each page of the notebook is made by hand.
Made with extraordinary care and attention
Unlike paper, making notebooks from living wood took more time and effort than imagined.
Each of these wooden notebooks is carefully hand-bound by craftsmen.
The wood is warped, splintered, and of course, some of them are more mature than others, but each piece of wood is unique, and the notebooks are made with as much care as possible to avoid splitting.
The craftsman's skill is the reason these notebooks were created.
They're engaged in everything from forestation to manufacturing under the corporate philosophy of "Creating Lifestyles that Create Forests".
A team of lumberjacks cuts trees and craftsmen shave sutra wood.
Everything from cutting down the trees to making Kyogi and notebooks is done in Inadani, Nagano Prefecture.
Their products include furniture made with an emphasis on nature, as well as notebooks made from Kyogi.
