Inspired by Field Note's 2014 Shelterwood Edition, the Cherry Graph features covers made from actual American Cherry wood, sliced ever-so-thin and bonded to a substrate of kraft paper for durability.
Thanks to the natural texture of the wood, no two Cherry Graph EDC notebooks are the same, but all share their origin in the same hand-picked cherry trees from Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin. The wood covers are sustainably produced, with just a few 60" logs converted into 5000 feet of “Sheer Veneer,” with very little waste (the waste is recycled into wood pellets to heat the factory!).
Inside is 50 pound bright white paper with a light-brown soy-based graph, making this pocket notebook flexible for your to-do's, lists, doodles or whatever else you need to write down.
