Japanese Stitch Sketch or Note Book


The perfect gift for scrapbookers, holding photographs or recording your thoughts.


Japanese Stitch Sketch or Note Book

Japanese Stitch Book for sketching or making notes. These A5 handmade sketchbooks have been hand bound using a traditional and decorative technique also known as stab binding because of the process.

The book is perfect for sketching, scrapbooking, holding photographs or recording your thoughts.

Produced by hand in our studio, no two books are the same. Each book has been covered in a different decorative paper and coloured, waxed thread. The books hold approximately 40 leaves of high quality 120gsm recycled paper.

We have just one design left – a blue and white graph paper cover with contrasting yellow thread.



  • A5
  • 100% recycled paper
  • Supplied in a plastic sleeve

If you fancy learning how to make one of these books yourself, check out our workshops here. Japanese Binding workshops are held bi-monthly in our Derby studio.

We are proud to support! If you’re happy to buy your book without a plastic sleeve, let us know when you place your order… easy peasy and earth friendly!!

Items are shipped within 1–3 business days after payment has been received.



Each book is individually made so please remember that books will differ slightly, which is always the charm of handmade goods! Please also remember that colours may vary across screens.
