Project description:

The idea underpinning the project is to support individuals in the process of improving their mental health. Strong, healthy and conscious individuals are capable of implementing their extraordinary visions with ease. As a result, the world becomes a better place, full of strong and beautiful initiatives. The project aims at creating an object that would make the process of writing down feelings and thoughts more convenient, sustainable and trendy. That’s why it features a luxurious and customizable cover and a set of interchangeable notebooks.

Thanks to the idea, several notebooks can be stored under one cover. This comes in handy when the user participates in a number of workshops simultaneously. Things can be written down in one place and organized in one’s own way. The project is a sustainable alternative to single-use notebooks with hard covers. It contributes to the reduction of such covers being notoriously difficult to recycle.

The product is created for those who love to learn as well as those who wish to heal and transform themselves.
