My Account

Hello. We’re Soumkine.

We’re a lifestyle brand based in Paris and we’re known around the world for our handmade notebooks.

We only use premium high-quality materials and we sew every single notebook by hand. This painstaking, time-consuming technique helps us to ensure meticulous attention-to-detail on each product.

We hope when you pick up a Soumkine product, you can feel all the hours of positive energy and passion that has been poured into it.

We believe in the magic of handmade.

What makes our notebooks special

Soumkine notebooks are the result of years of creation and experimentation to discover the perfect notebook

Each hand-stitched notebook has a beautiful textured, soft cover which comes in five attractive colours. The embossing on the cover makes the notebooks tactile, but durable, and you can choose from three sizes to make sure your notebook is perfect for your needs.

Soumkine notebooks are made from premium ivory uncoated paper

Soumkine notebooks are made from premium ivory uncoated paper

The paper is a perfect background for any writing implement, from pencils to fountain pens, as ink won’t bleed. You can choose the style of paper you most like to work with, too. Make your Soumkine your own.

Each product also carries a paperband hand drawn by Fiodor Sumkin

The style is a nod to 19th century graphic arts and typography – Fiodor’s favourite period of history – when the old masters devoted years of their life to every detail of their craft.

Testimonials

Leila, IG: @thepapermagpie
Soumkine notebooks are the perfect marriage of form and function. The luxurious paper is an unexpected workhorse that shows little ghosting even up against the wettest fountain pen inks. Each notebook boasts a cover in heavy stock that pleases both hand and eye, and the internal flyleaf and hand-drawn labels offer exactly the sort of thoughtful detail you'd expect from a Parisian workshop. Unique, hand-numbered certificates of authenticity make each notebook feel extra special. Soumkine is a notebook worth owning - and a brand worth watching.
