Seeking a company to match those values STOW partnered with The Stamford Notebook Company, a traditional printing, and bookbinding business set up in the 1950s and run today by Hugo Spiegl, son of the original founder.
STOW's founder Carol was struck by how similar the skills and production methods of their notebooks were to the production of STOW’s luxury accessories, also handcrafted by highly skilled artisans, in Spain.
Using high-quality, 100gsm cream fountain pen proof paper milled in the British Isles, these A5 notebooks are hand-bound by true craftsmen using centuries-old techniques who carry out all aspects of production including the printing of paper, folding, sewing, trimming, case-making and casing in.
The striking orange endpapers in each notebook are supplied by renowned luxury paper specialist G.F Smith of London are FSC-certified and 175gsm.
Our red recycled leather notebook contains plain paper.
Each notebook is 85% leather composition - covered entirely in recycled leather from industry cut-offs - and is finished with rounded corners and a smart gold-foiled embossed STOW logo.
The notebooks are designed to slip neatly into our Refillable Leather Notebook Cover and can be purchased separately as and when needed.
