Manekibook is a Scandi-looking notebook with mystique Japanese soul made of the best Italian materials such as genuine leather, acid-free paper, natural rubber and jewelry brass. Handmade for handwriting Manekibook presents the modern take on exclusive high-quality stationery for those who look for good design, celebrate authenticity, and believe in little miracles.
In 2009 failed to find convenient notebook — something simple, practical and fair-priced — Ukrainian entrepreneurs Oleg and Anton Duma decided to make it from scratch. The previous year two descendants of famous aviator dynasty started successful leather goods brand Moreca Atelier and were looking for a new business adventure.
After a few weeks and a dozen of prototypes tested by brothers and their friends, the perfect proportion was found. Furthermore, during the testing period there were some almost fairytale stories about the wishes written in the book came true. It was the inspiration for the brand’s name deriving from Maneki-neko, or the Fortune Cat, which is popular lucky charm in Asia.
The cover of the Manekibook made of vegetable-tanned leather, which develops elegant patina in course of the time. The layout is plain, so it’s you who make the rules over its ivory-colored sheets of acid-free paper with ink, pencil, and watercolor. Thanks to sewn binding with a silky thread, the replaceable block opens flat for comfort use of every millimeter of writing surface.
The symbol of Manekibook — the Fortune cat — is depicted on the fastening seal in high-quality jewelry brass decorated with engraving and radial guilloche made by hand. One master can only make five seals per day, that’s the reason why the production of Manekibook is organically limited.
Everything you write or draw on these pages is waiting for a chance to go beyond it to the real world. Manekibook invites you to make your personal ‘to dream-list' and share your thoughts, plans, sketches, notes, and ideas. One day it could become a bestseller novel, a world-famous painting, the best song ever written, a billion-dollar startup or the long-awaited cure of cancer.
Just open your Manekibook and dream on!
