Rarbooks

Unique notebooks made of directly recycled material

Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg

Announcement    For our notebooks we use almost exclusively "already existing" materials. Paper that was intended for the trash can or is simply no longer needed.
We cut collected boxes and papers into the appropriate sizes, add spiral and design and our hands create a useful and environmentally friendly product.

Our notebooks are therefore almost 100% made of old material. (except spiral and partly rubber strands)

We just want to counteract the daily abundance and throwing away a bit.

Rarbooks are always unique pieces or short runs, which you can only see the recycling history at second glance.

The covers are also hand-printed with screen printing technology.

To put it simply, our Rarbooks are a second chance for paper, reinterpreted and made usable for you as a store of ideas!

Made by hand with a lot of love.

About Rarbooks

Sales 342
On Etsy since 2013

With a lot of love and patience, we turn OLD into NEW!

Rar.books are notebooks that are made by us, Mathias and Adrienne, with a lot of love by hand from directly recycled material.
We come from near Stuttgart and have made it our mission to create something new and usable again from useless and surplus material that would be thrown away. We oppose the daily surplus production and the constant throwaway mania in our society.

We use existing materials. Thus, no new raw material has to be produced for our products.
We cut collected boxes and papers into the right sizes, add spiral and screen printing design and our hands create a useful and environmentally friendly product.

Rar.books are always unique pieces or short runs. They are passion, and quite simply,
a second chance for paper, reinterpreted and made usable for you as a store of ideas!
