APICA is an iconic Japanese notebook brand. Originally founded in Osaka in 1916 under the brand name 'Japan Notebook Manufacturer' the company eventually changed their name to APICA in 1973. The paper used in their notebooks is developed exclusively for APICA in collaboration with Oji Paper, a company known for their sustainable forestry and responsible paper production.
The APICA range of notebooks are known for their retro/vintage covers, fabric-covered spines, sewn thread binding, but mostly for their silky-smooth fountain pen-friendly paper.
Japanese craftsmanship at its very best.
