Innovative stationery company Artbox have had their studio in Sussex since the mid-eighties. Smart product design is their speciality, driven by a belief that ethics, aesthetics and economics go hand-in-hand. All of their products are made with sustainability in mind, and their imaginative approach to product origination plays its part in saving resources. Their signature recycled leather sketchbooks are filled with high-grade recycled paper and board from British mills, while the binding is a clever loose-leaf system based on Japanese techniques that allows books to be re-filled and covers re-used. The surface colours and the screen-print inks are water-based.
