In a world where immediacy reigns supreme, Carnet Paon has chosen to favor another relationship with time. With us, no intensive production, but an handmadel, original, ethical production: all our notebooks are made in limited series, by hand. They are shaped by people who like to collaborate. A small, deeply human and eco-responsible approach business, where we work with recovered paper!
Where some can see waste, we find a first-class material: des fragments d’époques bien souvent révolues, des papiers exceptionnels issus de techniques désormais rares, voire disparues… So many "scrap of paper" to which we give a second life, by focusing on simplicity and common sense. Our ambition ? Make together, offer a travel book with an original design that carries with it a memory, a story that just needs to continue ...
Partout, s’ entassent, se détériorent, s’ oublient de beaux papiers. Marbrés, lignés, sérigraphiés fluo, catalogues d’ époque originaux, cahiers d’ écolier, documents illustrés…découverts dans les ruines, les mines d’ or, en France, au Maroc et en Inde; dans les friches, et les vieux stocks d’ imprimerie… Carnet Paon s’ occupe de sauver cette matière mise au rebut, de lui redonner vie.
Only 200 notebooks, we choose to produce little but well. Every notebook is unique, handmade in France..
Little gems - some of them have spanned the 20th century- that are sorted , arranged and assembled together. It is a true composition of textures, prints and colours, a notebook that carries a memory, a history that is still to be continued.
