Born from a passion for all things paper and design, Mabuki is a line of stationery inspired by auspicious symbols of the East. Crafted from specially sourced nature-friendly Asian paper.

In a world where people are being gobbled up by digital noise, it’s easy to take paper for granted and forget how refined of a medium it truly is. After thousands of years, the use of paper feels natural, bringing you back to nature and the true essence of quiet.

Our inaugural series is a set of 4 notebooks:
Size: 125mm x 160mm (slightly smaller than A5)
