Tomoe River Paper

The 52 gsm paper in this A5 leather bound notebook is incredibly thin, and fountain pen-friendly. This paper shows off the beautiful sheen and shimmer in inks unlike any other paper. 

Our 52 gsm Tomoe River paper is the same Tomoe River paper that's used in the popular Hobonichi notebooks.

For fountain pen enthusiasts who favor shading ink (that is, those that create subtle color gradations as the ink is applied to the paper) will appreciate how the paper shows off these subtle color variations. Sheening inks also perform well as pools of color will sit on the surface of the paper and when dry, will create the reflective look so many fountain pen users love. It’s important to be patient and let the paper fully dry to prevent smudging, especially when using sheening or metallic inks. You can read more about this in our blog post about Tomoe River Paper.
