Karst (3)

Karst’s tree-free designs make for a sustainable alternative to traditional notebooks that’s impossibly smooth and brilliantly white.

Made from 100% recycled stone, each Karst product has a fraction of the carbon footprint of pulp paper, offering friction-free pages that are kinder to the planet. The calcium carbonate used to make each sheet of Karst stone paper is recovered from construction and mining waste, which is combined with a non-toxic resin to produce paper that’s waterproof and tear-resistant.

Not only does Karst’s production save precious trees, it also uses 60% less energy than traditional pulp paper, and produces no water pollution, making it a strong eco-friendly alternative.
