About the notebook
This A5 notebook is made from handmade paper in Nepal. Why choose local over conventional paper produced in big factories? It's made from a renewable resource called lokta, a plant which grows above 3000m in the Himalayan foothills. The fiber collection, paper manufacture and book binding create valuable employment in the hill areas of Nepal. Also, it's strong, durable and offers harmless quality that lasts!
‘JUX’ literally means ‘fun’ or ‘having a laugh’ in German. According to Jitske Lundgren and Carlien Helmink fashion and a sustainable lifestyle should be fun for everyone. For the designers, people working in the factory and everyone wearing and using the products. The handshake inside each garment introduces you to the Nepali tailor who made it.
