Our Story

Through design-oriented & sustainable everyday tools, we inspire consumers to
do more and create more, responsibly.



We could kill trees too. But why should we have to? It’s possible to make paper without timber and water, without chlorine or acids, without waste, using only a third of the carbon footprint. So we did. Our paper is made of stone. It’s smoother, brighter, and more durable than traditional paper. We don’t compromise. Neither should you.

Designed in Sydney Australia, Karst Stone Paper aims to disrupt the paper industry. The need for paper isn’t going away any time soon, but the need for a sustainable paper option is nearing a tipping-point. Our products are born from a single intention, to respect people and planet. We strive to follow this principle from beginning to end.

We like to think of Karst products as complementary tools in a world of digital devices. Luxury stationery that slips into your lifestyle, constructed by some of the world's best bookbinders and printers to make notebooks that feel part of your everyday life, rather than just writing tools. Our design is simple, functional and beautiful. We don’t want our products yelling at you with over-embellishment; we want them to collaborate with you through quiet refinement. Each aspect, from colour, to size, to aesthetic is thoughtful and intentional, designed to provoke your creativity. 

Karst stone paper about usStone paper is future-friendly, made from one of the most abundant substances on earth: calcium carbonate. What you’re looking at is recycled — we repurpose waste stone produced by the mining industry and construction industry, crush it into a powder, and combine it with a non-toxic, recyclable binding agent to make stone paper. Not one drop of water and not one tree was harmed in the making of these notebooks.

Karst Stone Paper is a superior alternative to traditional pulp paper that uses no trees, water, wastes, acids or bleaches to produce. Our paper is the whitest and smoothest paper available. Not only is Karst Stone Paper a better alternative, it’s also waterproof and tear resistant. Our manufacturing process is powered in part by solar energy and leaves a 60% smaller carbon footprint than traditional paper.

Just like us, Karst products are for individuals looking to feel and express their creativity and productivity. Each notebook is a starting place to solve new problems, providing a blank page to do more and create more.

Waterproof. Tear-resistant. Made from stone. Like normal paper, only better.
