The Ota-Bind Ballet

The Ota-Bind, originating from in the beautiful islands of Japan, is the heart of our lay-flat notebooks:

  • The pages are sewn into small sections before the use a sophisticated gluing technique that forms the backbone of the notebook’s ability to lay flat without protest. This glue stays flexible when dry, unlike other binding glues. 
  • Unlike conventional notebooks, the cover isn’t glued to the spine. Instead, it is secured to the first and last pages, offering the spine the freedom to move, to breathe, to flex, allowing the pages to lay flat without a fight.

Crafting Perfection

With materials chosen and the binding process complete, it's time to put everything together:

  • Book Block: With precision and care, we trim and prepare the book block, transforming a stack of pages into a harmonious collection ready to chronicle your adventures.
  • Cover Crafting: We carve, treat, and sometimes even emboss the covers, infusing them with personality and durability, ensuring they are both guardians and companions to your words.
