Tinkebu x Blanc Books
We were recently introduced to another Cornwall based business whose idea came out of necessity. Blanc Books was formed by David and Tim after they jointly realised that they needed a better notebook. They set out to create a notebook which would be just as useful stuffed in a pocket on an adventure as it is on the desk. They set about making something by hand that would be hard-wearing whilst not compromising on style. After a number of prototypes the duo carefully selected their final paper (FSC Certified of course), covers, stitching method and produced what we think is a rather neat notebook.
When we were approached to give the new product a road test in the workshop we connected with what they were trying to achieve - better products made with love, locally. Part of a more sustainable future has got to be about making products that are in use for longer and we therefore felt an immediate meeting of minds.
Beyond this, there’s an emotional element, as we hope there are with our products. Blanc Books develop a patina and earn a story as rich as the notes written within them.
The books are for people that do, that make, that live. It is a tool that inspires your very best work, don’t be scared to write in it, crease it or get it dirty, use it. The greatest discoveries, adventures, ideas, designs, businesses all start as a written thought or sketch. Don’t be scared, be a person that does. - Blanc Books
