Helen Chatterton Textiles City on Cloth notebooks both beautiful to look at and to use. It is one way of repurposing the left over map fabric from our City on Cloth collection of silk scarves. This silk is printed in Macclesfield – a town in Cheshire known for its silk production.
The notebooks are A5 size (148 x 210mm/5.8 x 8.31 inches) and filled with 70 pages of plain white 90 gsm paper, perfect for sketching, recipes or just making notes! They have a ribbon/bookmark in a colour which complements the silk cover. The front endpaper is printed with our logo.
Each note book is individually packaged in a 100% biodegradable clear bag.
Due to offcuts from the map scarves being used, the part of the map of each city is different in the notebooks, the utmost attention being paid by the makers to getting the best pattern on every cover. Please bear in mind that the street scene that you see on the photograph may differ from the street scene on the book you choose.

Helen’s map scarves came into being as a result of a Handmade in Britain Show in 2012. The scarves have been very popular and Helen is always thinking of new ways to use up the extra fabric created when the maps are printed. The notebooks are a new adventure.
It is important to us that the notebooks are sourced from a UK based company called Kapdaa (Hindi for cloth). The notebooks themselves are ethically handmade in India using traditional artisan techniques and materials.
