The Bindewerk notebooks are not just a bundle of cream-coloured paper. All the Bindewerk notebooks feature high-quality Italian Fedrigoni writing paper. The handmade covers are crafted with care, and the patterns for the Marlies/Jackie series are designed by the expert graphic designer Johanna Sasse.
The Jacky and Marlies series have a vintage touch with tiny smudges and slightly faded areas in the designs. They tell the story of summer vacations of bygone days, of treasure hunts in dusty attics filled with old photo albums, faded prom-dresses and jewel boxes.
A team of highly skilled workers now produces over 4,000 items. Nothing is left to chance. Even before a sheet of paper becomes part of a beautiful notebook, there is a whole process that involves several minute and often complex steps: cutting, folding, stacking, stapling, gluing, pressing, stamping, sewing, binding… in other words, sheer ingenuity, uncompromising quality and many years of experience.
