Notes Foundry

Notes Foundry develops beautifully designed sustainable stationery to help everyone work and create while reducing plastic and landfill waste thanks to their innovative, world-leading recyclable notebooks and binders. Founded in summer of 2018 by real-life couple Celia and John Wilson, Notes Foundry is a love story. Celia and John were successfully applying their talents in the corporate world, in the cutting-edge fields of medicine development and AI technologies - but realising the urgency of the environmental crisis, the couple decided they wanted to pour their hearts into greener projects with a real and direct positive impact. Their combined love of stationery made it an obvious place to start!

Notes Foundry

Notes Foundry was the brainchild of Celia Wilson and her husband John as they set out on a journey to conceive sustainable stationery that could inspire students, creators, and office workers alike to continue enjoying paper and ditch screens while doing good for the environment. The practical writing experience is as much at the heart of Notes Foundry's designs as their green achievements. Instead of taking a plastic-laden product and swapping materials to produce a greener solution, Notes Foundry grabs the chance to revisit common stationery. They question, probe, and poke at everything around it to imagine binders, notebooks and journals fit for their time, conscious and sustainable, yet light, beautiful, and intuitive.
