Kizara memo pads are made by shaving thin individual sheets of paper from a single block of wood. These sheets, traditionally used to wrap food, are now reimagined as beautiful notepads for the creative mind. Experience the aesthetic and tactile pleasure of writing and drawing directly on woodgrain.

Beauty is in the details with these handy memo pads by Japanese stationery brand Inkaren. Designed for functional use, these memo pads feature an elastic closing band to secure your spot and a corner ring section for easy page turning. Each pad is lovingly finished by hand with a leather-like texture that resists wear-and-tear, keeping your notes safe and protected. Proportioned for daily use, this collection features lined, dotted, and blank pages perfect for drawing, making lists, or bullet-journaling.
In the spring of 2012, six stationery companies with different specializations combined to form Inkaren. Their fields were varied, ranging from bookbinding, hole-punching, folding, binding, die cutting, covering with gold & silver leaf, embossing, paper inlaying, seal printing and general printing. By bringing old-school stationery techniques back into the 21st century, Inkaren prides itself on craftsmanship that you can touch: the subtle softness of paper or the effortless corner fold of the rings. With a neutral, minimal design, each notebook is designed to inspire creativity without distraction.
