The open binding we use in our sketchbooks is, in essence, the same type of binding used in bookmaking. However, while traditional books have a closed spine, in our case, the spine remains open.

We utilize a special silk thread and extensive gluing along the entire perimeter in creating this binding.

This binding is particularly strong due to several factors. Firstly, it is crafted using special silk thread. This thread stitches the notebooks with paper in a way that prevents the sketchbook from tearing or falling apart during daily use. Secondly, the already stitched notebooks are securely fixed together with glue, allowing the sketchbook to maintain its shape under any usage conditions. We carefully inspect the binding of each product to ensure that you receive a high-quality item.
