This cotton notebook by Midori is perfect for sketching or for anyone who likes a little more tooth rather than the silky smooth paper of Midori's classic pads and notebooks. Cotton is used for 20% of the materials, making it very durable and preservable. Its fibers are longer and narrower than those of pulp, giving it a smooth, pleasing texture with a softness that feels like it is infused with air. The notebook’s threaded binding makes the pages both robust and easy to open, providing the ultimate comfort when writing. The cover is Midori’s iconic minimal design, made from a durable paper with an exposed spine, highlighting the pleasing texture of the book’s materials and the joy of writing itself. The exposed spine also makes the book more flexible, keeping the notebook open perfectly. The "F" stands for figure. The French standard is based on the golden ratio for portraits and pictures. Compatible mini clip pen holders available here.

Since the 1950’s Midori has been asking themselves, “How can we update and hone the comfort of writing?” Part of their answer lay in using broad leafed trees with softer pulp rather than conifers. Another part came through using filtered river water rather than treated water. Yet another was to take away the cover from the notebook, which often makes notebooks harder to open and decreases the comfort of writing. Instead they use a cheesecloth tape, often found on the inside of book bindings. Every stage of production is monitored by the human hand. How does the pulp feel immersed in water? How does the page feel when you run your hands across it? How does the pen feel as it slides over the paper?
