Layflat notebook featuring the Ola Studio 'Diamond’ print in green. Ola’s cover notebooks are crafted with a sewn layflat binding, allowing you to work across two pages simultaneously, and the book to rest open at a chosen page. Each features a traditionally printed cover that’s flexible, so it will fit comfortably into any pocket or bag.
Ola was founded by London based designer Katy Goutefangea in 2014. Her dedication to craft and love of process and materials stem from her background as a studio printmaker and bookbinder. Katy brings the knowledge and experience gained during her fine art degree to her work as well as her ongoing research into historical design and traditional techniques.
Ola products include notebooks, diaries and patterned papers with an emphasis on craft, quality and traditional manufacture. Each item is a quiet celebration of pattern, influenced by architecture, abstract geometry and artists such as Sol LeWitt, Anni Albers and Donald Judd.
