Paper Made From Stone Will Save Trees
Ogami notebooks use Repap, an innovative material with a much more friendly carbon footprint than traditional paper.
Repap is paper spelt backwards. It is also a new material that can be used as paper would be, to doodle on, to write upon frenetically or to make aerodynamic planes. But repap is not actually paper: it isn't made out of trees, it is made out of stone.
Ogami, based in Milan, is producing the word's first notebooks made from stone, and not only are they environmentally friendly but they look nice too. The line consists of a minimalist collection, reminiscient of Moleskines or a ‘quotes' edition with a graphic Bauhaus feel. While the design is interesting, it is what inside – the stone paper – that counts.
