Papier Touché by Tipozero
letterpress printing in the heart of Brussels
Papier Touché is the stationery brand of Tipozero, a Brussels based letterpress & risograph workshop.
Tipozero uses high quality paper from renowned paper distributors such as Fedrigoni and they work closely with local craftsmen such as a local leather workshop. Products are produced on a small scale and entirely by hand.
The workshop is tucked away in an ordinary street in Anderlecht, on the first floor of a offset printshop. The workshop is a true heaven for paper and typo lovers: stacks of beautiful paper, wooden and lead letters, vintage letter boxes, the smell of ink & paper and great typography everywhere!
When owner Peter, showed us their Papier Touché collection, we were truly impressed by the craftmanship and original design. We were especially in awe of the well-thought details such as the rounded corners of the notebooks or the paper wallet that comes with the wallet.
So we are very, very proud to present the entire collection of Papier Touché, a series of leather notebook covers and notebooks.
To protect your notebooks, Papier Touché designed a leather cover, made by a local leather workshop in Brussels. Covers are made from first quality leather, sourced from Bretagne and Poitou-Charentes in France, and then vegetable tanned in West Flanders.
The leather sleeves have four rounded slits to keep your notebooks in place with the elastic bands. Covers come in two colours — cognac or coffee — and a paper wallet to hold loose papers and tickets. The paper wallet is made out of one single sheet (!) of heavyweight paper without any gluing, stitching or sewing.
Each cover can hold up to four notebooks: up to you which ones you need!
Papier Touché made several series of notebooks, in sets of two or three. There are notebooks to sketch, draw, brush & write and some limited edition series.
In the Sketch, Draw & Brush series, each notebook has a different paper weight and thickness, adjusted to its function. No stitching or binding here: notebooks are held together with elastic bands. The rounded corners are designed to protect the notebooks from damaging by the elastic bands. The bands are custom made by a Dutch company to match with the notebooks.
At the moment there are two limited edition series: the Sun & Moon series and the Etoiles series. These delicate sets make perfect gifts and come in sets of two notebooks.
