Have always carried a notebook despite the digital conveniences. That’s why we love this Paris-based company, Soumkine, a brand bent on reviving the paper and writing culture. In 2016 Soumkine was launched producing simple but thoughtfully designed notebooks and planners. Each notebook is made of high-quality Italian paper and bound by hand at their Parisian atelier. The books are hand-stitched in the beautiful tradition of pre-1950s French bookbinding. Their graphics are designed by Fiodor Sumkin the company’s typographer and founder. The process of making a Soumkine book is explained here in their blog.
