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: fragments of times that are often gone, exceptional papers from techniques that are now rare, or even disappeared... 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 ...
Everywhere, they pile up, deteriorate, forget beautiful papers. Marbled, lined, fluorescent serigraphy, original period catalogs, school notebooks, illustrated documents ... discovered in ruins, gold mines, in France, Morocco and India; in wasteland, and old printing stocks ... Carnet Paon takes care of saving this discarded material, giving it new life.
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.
