Dot Grid + Lined Page Hybrid

Our vegan leather notebook is simply the one I’ve always wanted to use. With a hybrid of dot grid (Bullet Journal style) pages, alternating with our signature dotted lines, it is the perfect canvas (the best of both worlds). Dot Grid provides flexibility for custom spreads, budget trackers, graphs and more, while lined pages make for easy note-taking, lists and journaling.

This alternating pattern adds an extra layer of versatility and adaptability to the notebook – you can easily switch between different styles of layouts within the same notebook. This allows you to tailor your note-taking, journaling, or creative work to the specific requirements of each task or project.

Perforated Pages

For the ultimate in useability and convenience, our easy-tear micro-perforated pages make it effortless to remove pages cleanly and neatly.

Whether you’re tearing out notes on the go, filing pages in other folders, writing a shopping list, or simply removing pages with mistakes, perforated pages enable you to detach them with ease and leave a clean canvas behind.

Elastic Closure and Handy Pocket

A hidden pocket in the back is perfect for storing notes, receipts or a couple of business cards on the go, while the elastic closure on the back is optional, but perfect to keep the contents of the notebook secured.

High Quality 100 GSM Pages

Our smooth, creamy pages are as good for the environment as they are to write on, with FSC (sustainable forestry) Certified paper in 100 gsm – thick enough to be bleed-proof (we recommend Artline Pens).
