Welcome to Casa D’Amendoeira, we are glad to have you here!
Casa D’Amendoeira is a Portuguese brand that was born in 2013 by the hand of two bookbinders. We didn’t start producing collections immediately but by giving bookbinding classes. It was something we did for a long time and we just loved teaching our students to create their first notebook. That object so special for them! For us it was truly magical and the feedback was as positive and encouraging as possible.
Therefore, producing and creating our collections was a small step. Motivated by our students and friends, we ventured into the creation of a stationery project whose soul would have to be in traditional binding techniques. Besides, our love for books and stationery made all the difference!
From the manual cut of the sewing stations to the use of traditional bookbinding materials, all notebooks are hand sewn and bound giving a unique identity of each one of them. No two notebooks are alike!
But if, on one side, we seek excellence in craftsmanship, on the other, we would never be able to do anything in which our personality was not present. It is through our original collections that our personality flows, such as the sense of humor, the choice of all details and finishes and the style and concept of each one.
Our mission for the future is to have our notebooks around the world, to motivate the practice of journaling, to value everything handmade and, above all, to make someone very happy. In addition, new collections will appear for different users, existing ones will grow, and new stationery products will appear.
So, thank you for being part of our journey! We invite you, whenever you want to talk to us, to give us your feedback on our notebooks, propose new ideas or even, who knows, create a customized notebook for you.
