Silvine Originals Notebooks

A British Icon.

The Silvine Originals collection celebrates a true British icon in the world of notebooks. Don’t worry if you didn’t immediately recognise the name, you’ll remember their iconic look. A bold red cover with a midnight blue wreath logo adorning the front and a conversion table printed on the back. You may also remember the classic notebook, a trusted favourite amongst carpenters, builders, designers, butchers and shopkeepers – often accompanied by a fat red pencil sharpened with a knife.

Hidden in the depths of the Silvine archive, samples of these incredible books were found, from across the years. It was then Silvine decided to pay homage to what these books have stood for over the decades. From the outset, they were engineered to perfectly meet the needs of those who used them, whether that was at school or in a carpenter’s workshop, an artist’s studio or a writer’s bureau.

And so, the Silvine Originals collection was born. Inspired by the bold red books that have adorned the pockets, satchels, drawers and shelves of so many for so long. A true British icon, reinvented.
