grand voyageur [xl] | hand-printed edition

0 in stock
The ultimate paper republic classic transformed into a work of art.

The hand-printed edition is a celebration of art and craftsmanship, a work of art achieved through skill, love, and imagination to bring you something truly unique and beautiful. Screen printing is a hands-on art form, and printing on leather is extremely rare given the difficulty in achieving the desired result, the time and materials needed. That is where our leather expert Steffi and a local Viennese artist named Stephka came together with their vision of blending a traditional artform with an innovative solution to achieve this wonderful finish.

Stephka uses a deep printing technique which ensures that the design (drawn by our very own Steffi) will never fade away. The result is 240 pieces, all with their own pattern and personality which will become your newest companion and transform your life with organisation and unique beauty. Due to the intensive nature of the production, this unique edition is offered to members only. Each piece comes with a numbered special edition certificate.

This is a rare chance to own a work of art that will travel with you wherever you go.

Product sustainability

All our leather products are handmade in our workshop in Vienna using the finest quality, vegetable-tanned vachetta leather. Our leather comes from a family-run tannery in Tuscany, Italy and is certified by the "Genuine Italian Vegetable-Tanned Leather Consortium (Pelle al Vegetale)". The leather is tanned using only natural raw materials in a traditional and eco-friendly process. No chrome is used in the tanning process.
We use solely acid-free, FSC and PEFC-certified paper made in traditional paper mills in Europe. All our notebooks are printed in Vienna with eco-friendly, vegetable-based inks.
