NAMBAN notebooks are produced by hand in Portugal using Japanese binding. They exhibit an oriental aesthetic, going beyond the function of just another notebook. NAMBAN works with craftsmen and small local industries to produce these minimalist stationary items. The brand is highly focused on the quality of its products and the exclusivity of its designs. Each one is folded, bound and finished by hand.
