We recently talked talked about leather accessories label Bleu de Chauffe and their collaboration with brush manufacturer Andrée Jardin. The French brand has now teamed up with one of our favourite notebook manufacturers, Calepino, to create Portfolio, a set of 3 memo notebooks protected by a tanned vegetable leather cover.
Both companies are passionate about good design and craftsmanship, so it isn’t a surprise that the final result is a beautiful, classic product made by artisans in the brands’ workshops. The Portfolio soft cover is a reinterpretation of the cardboard elasticated flap folders, and the colour of the different elastic bands refers to the colour code of the Calepino notebooks: red for ruled paper, green for graph paper, blue for plain paper and grey for dot grip paper. We received our own Portfolio just a few days ago and it has become the best companion to take notes about inspiration and future features on our website.
The collaboration between Bleu de Chauffe and Calepino is now available online on:
