Recycled Note Of The Week: Subu

This week’s Recycled Note Of The Week comes from Subu Rose, who specializes in creating unique and perfectly purse or pocket-sized notebooks from 100% recycled papers.

The covers of each notebook come from 100% cardstock made with 30% post-consumer fibers. The inside pages of the notebooks come from discarded printer paper so some of them have text and/or images on them, which I think adds to the overall charm and uniqueness of each notebook. The binding is hemp, with a button closure.

But who better to tell you about the notebooks than the seller and designer herself?

about the books: i try to use recycled materials when i can. not because it’s trendy or the hip thing to do, but because i feel that it is the right thing to do. i strive to find recycled materials, whether it is the cardstock used to cover the books to the paper inside or buttons that have been saved from the perils of misuse.

I’ve ordered these via Etsy multiple times, and the Subu notebooks I have are some of my all-time favorites of my entire (slightly excessive) recycled collection. They are dainty without being too small and each one is truly unique.

And don’t miss the Control Freak Recycled Notebook listing on Etsy, wherein you get to play master designer for two notebooks of your choice.
