Takeo Paper Products - Mottainai Memo - Assorted 06.

"Mottainai" originally means "what a waste!" in Japanese, but soon became a popular expression reminding people to cherish and upcycle natural resources or products before they go to waste. The Mottainai Memo is inspired by this concept, and with that in mind, a collection of discontinued but beautifully produced paper had then been curated by Takeo Paper Products. Each memo block contains three types of fine paper, and is being produced in limited quantities due to their availability on the market. 

The Assorted 06 collection contains three paper textures: Edo Kozome Uroko paper comes with a “scale” design that resembles traditional Japanese patterns. Take Aya GA paper has the soft, downy texture of young bamboo. Micaride paper is a glossy paper with a mineral texture and translucent striped pattern.
