French Paper’s recycled speckletone, with delightful flecks and shives, is made from 100% Hydroelectric power. We think French’s is a great company, but being in Toronto we’d prefer to use a Canadian supplier. If you have any leads, let us know!


Our own unique design with rounded corners and a flexible living hinge, we laser cut the covers on-demand at our studio. We use veneered wood comprised of a formaldehyde-free fiber board core with real wood laminate on either side. Sanded smooth. Our cherry and maple covers have a semi-matt varnish, while our baltic birch covers are unfinished.

We’ll engrave the name(s) of the recipient on the front cover. On the inside a befitting quote from one of our favourite socially-conscious visionaries will be engraved on the inside.


We bind our books with super-tough waxed Irish linen thread.


Combining our love of vintage shopping with our concern for the environment – we wrap each of our Fondfolios in a locally-sourced scarf using a Japanese wrapping technique called “Furoshiki”. This means the wrap can be reused – either for another gift or as a scarf!
