We all know that paper is made from trees. To be more specific, it’s made from pulp wood fibre. In today’s society, paper can be made from multiple materials, including rice, water plants and cotton. But have you ever heard of paper made from stone? I bring you: Karst Stone Paper stationery; a stationary range with paper made entirely from stone. Here’s now it works.


Karst Stone Paper transforms recycled stone into simple, functional and beautiful products.  To do this, they re-purpose waste stone produced by the mining and construction industry, crush it into powder and combine it with a non-toxic, recyclable binding agent. This means that none of their notebooks contain any trees, water, wastes, acids or bleaches. The best part of all this? the paper is waterproof and tear resistant. That means you can carry your notebook on-the-go, accidentally drop it into the sink and your valued words are still going to be completely safe.


I’ll get down to the specifics. Karst Stone Paper notebooks are available in two sizes, A5 and A5. They also offer a pocket journal – and all of these products are available in five different colours. You can choose from both hardcover and softcover, blank or lined, and they even have a dot grid notebook for sale due to popular demand; better get your wallets out now! A 2018 planner is also available on their website, a wonderful organising tool with weekly and monthly views, tasks, goals and note sections.


Karst Stone Paper is the world’s smoothest and whitest paper and allows you to write freely with any pen as it guarantees no ink bleed-through. I’ve yet to get my hands on one of these, but when I do I’ll make sure to test out the pages with my trust-worthy Lamy fountain pen. Another great initiative which makes buying one of these gorgeous notebooks even better is that they’ve partnered with the One Tree Planted foundation to help aid the growth of global reforestation. With every notebook bought, they plant a tree in North America, South America, Asia and Africa.
