Message from the Founder:
“My great great grandfather established one of the first paper shops in Lebanon in the early 19th century, trading high quality paper more or less continuously from then until the present day. I passionately believe that there’s still a place for this most traditional of materials in today’s high speed, digital world. Sometimes you need something that’s more tactile – more personal. Our wide range of Dingbats* Notebooks lets you choose the design, material and colour that reflects your own personality.” – Jamal Bekdache
