Know About
Grafolita is a small universe where paper, ink and color rule. A universe where big and medium size notebooks, narrow and wide, tall and short are handmade. All rising from the sheer taste for hands-on printing and type, traditional binding, and the simple pleasure of using handsome and functional handmade objects.

100% crafted by hand, the Grafolita Notebooks are letterpress printed, bound one by one, with great care for every detail. With thoughtfully chosen materials, these notebooks were conceived to be a warm and friendly company to those who sketch, write and keep.

Know About

My name is Catarina Vaz, I live in Lisbon and I'm a Designer who sometimes wanders off the computer to play with letterpress, and explore materials. I find it fun just to work with our hands, making creative things and learning with the process.

I take inspiration from the simple beauty and potential of materials. There is also the interest in tradition and the way old craftsmanship may inspire younger designers.

I Learn and explore by myself, by making simple notebooks, carefully designed and hopefully beautiful. The first Grafolita Notebook model was in accordion style, but now the collection started growing. I hope you enjoy all!
