Skoba sells eco-certified paper notebooks and diaries with covers made from recycled paper, textiles and plastic. Everything is created in-house using traditional hand-operated machinery. There is a “homeless edition” made from old books and magazines picked up by Honza Badalec, a former homeless man who is now working with the Pragulic project (he receives a portion of all sales). Customers can bring in their own materials to be used in the cover, for example an old shirt. Prices range from CZK149-349. Makes a great gift!
“The price is part of the product – somewhere in the middle between luxury and normal paper products. We want it to be something not sterile – something individual. ” – Václav Pišoft, owner
