Writing and drawing is the legacy of thought and Oboeru is a Japanese word for memories. The collection features Mino Washi papers and screen-printed notebooks, combined with traditional binding techniques and gold leafing. Designers always carry notebooks, and Japan is filled with inspiring observations, insights and memories that quickly fill them with amusing words and etiquette. The Japanese language itself is beautiful, even if you don’t understand the meaning, with its birdsong-like sounds often compared to Italian.
