When I was a kid, I remember one daddy's shirt: she was bright in a small multicolored cage, very beautiful, with its "quiet" beauty. When he was younger, he often put it on. Since then she hung in dad's closet for a long time and he did not put it on anymore, because she became small on him. Once I sewed him a notebook from this shirt. Now this shirt became useful to him again.
Now we have become a studio «Papinarubashka» (eng. «Daddy`s shirt») and we are happy to give old things a new life.

Papinarubashka (eng. «Daddy`s shirt») — it`s a upcycling-notepads from Kyiv, Ukraine
created exclusively from vintage clothes (these are different shirts, jackets of pleasant
tactile materials with interesting prints) which we carefully looking for in flew-markets and are allowed to be re-manufactured in new creative design. We absolutely enjoy working with ‌every new design because in this way we reduced to a minimum any kind of circulation and ‌we understand that in every new notepad we create the first and last time notepad.

Notepad. For us is an integral tool for studying the world around and yourself in it.
We believe that our notepads inspire to search for new knowledge and contribute to new

Upcycling. We realize that the resources of planet Earth are being intensively exhausted. At
the same time, people continue to produce things for the production of which expends more and more resources. One of the directions that slows down this process is to learn reuse the way people created things until We found our way.

Upcycling design. We do not invent any new elements, we use only what we find on the
clothes. We do not like decorative aesthetics, we like functional beauty.

«Quiet» beauty. We think that is too much bright enough and brilliant all around, who
"screem about himself." We really like "quiet" things that "keep silent," but
which have a magnetic and attractive beauty, which create the impulse - to take them in
hands, to trust them.
