“Power of Material”: that is their brand strap line.
Japanese brand MUCU produces artisan made, hand-finished notebooks using mainly untreated materials including- canvas, tarpaulin, and newspaper-grade stock. While Moleskine’s notebooks are just fine, they’re pretty ubiquitous these days. Each piece is hand-finished in the firm’s compact Tokyo workshop and made using mainly untreated materials including canvas, tarpaulin and newspaper-grade stock. The aim is to restore to everyday life contact with unabashedly raw textures that age nicely over an extended period. And these are tools for prolonged use, stresses the maker, if you're after something a bit more exclusive than Muji or Moleskine.
It is available in black and orange leather, comes in ruled or blank pages.
