The Stamford Notebook

A good notebook is hard to find. You know the ones - small, compact, colourful ohh and more importantly, it has to fit into all of my handbags. Enter the Stamford Notebook...

There’s something quietly satisfying about using a brand new notebook for the first time. Which is why I was excited to find these marvellous limited edition woven cloth notebooks for spring/summer 2017.

These beauties come with contrasting ribbon and elastic closure and you can choose from a range of bright, zingy shades inspired by the catwalk – think radiant orchid, sunny lime (yes please), island paradise and pink yarrow. There’s two sizes to choose from and you can also have your initials embossed or add a piece of text for a very special gift or make it a personal journal.

Launched in 2013, the family-run company has grown quickly and now sell everything from diaries to luxury stationery, but it’s their notebooks which are their most popular products and it’s not hard to see why. All of their items can be made bespoke, they used only British-milled paper and everything is printed, folded, sewn and bound in beautiful Stamford, Lincolnshire.

In this day and age where pretty much everything you do, you do using your phone, it’s nice to take it back to the old school and dig into your handbag and pull out a fancy schmancy notebook like this to jot down your thoughts, ideas and notes.
