Alexander Wang, the renowned designer and newly appointed creative director of Balenciaga, purchased and customized black Habana notebooks. You can see them here on his site. In addition to modifying the corners, he added brass-edged pages. The effect is pretty striking.
Gfeller Casemakers, a western-style leather crafter out in Idaho, is in the process of making a custom leather cover for Habanas. Gfeller makes and stocks custom covers for some Rhodia notebooks and pads. They complement the paper and pads quite beautifully. Leather takes on its own character as it travels along with us every day.
Gfeller is practically the opposite of Alexander Wang. One exemplifies urban sophistication; the other rugged field work out in the back country. Both use the same notebook!
Here’s a question: should we promote customized versions of our products on our quovadisplanners.com and quovadisblog.com? I think so, but I would like to get your feedback.
Thanks so much.
