Is writing an escape for handling hard times?
Ever since Covid-19 has made sure we all stay at home, many have been frustrated and bored wondering how to while away time …
We, at Bluecat Paper, have a solution for you to keep yourself occupied while also staying safe. Our solution is to write or keep a journal.
These activities help introspect, look for those elusive life answers within, and understand yourself better. Better yet, they help keep you indoors at a time like this!
Writing a book or maintaining a journal has multiple benefits;
- Writing enables you to put your thoughts together
- Expressing yourself can help increase your vocabulary
- Writing leads to better thinking and communicating
- Journaling can help understand your mood swings better
- Writing leads to increased gratitude
- You are more focused and this helps increase your concentration
Expressive writing helps to improve your mood and allows us to reflect on the day we have had. Writing also helps ease anxiety and reduce stress. And we all know we need a little less stress with all that is going on these days.
At Bluecat Paper, we enable you to write more and avail the benefits that maintaining a journal can bring. That too, with the most beautiful, handmade tree-free paper.
We make paper without cutting down a tree. We save trees by creating paper from residual by-products.
We encourage the use of tree-free paper over the traditional mill made paper. All waste materials are sourced from factory units and farms and contain as high as 85-90% cellulose rather than tree fiber which comprises only 30-40%
Additionally, in the conventional paper industry, about 60-80 chemicals are used to make paper-thin and white. Therefore, making tree-free paper by upcycling waste, we save our forests. Our paper is acid-free paper or chemical-free paper, enabling us to recycle water back into production
Our high-quality books are created in different sizes and types in order to help you write more. There is no right or wrong way to use our handmade journals and notebooks as Ernest Hemingway famously said
“There is no rule on how to write. Sometimes it comes easily and perfectly: sometimes it’s like drilling rock and then blasting it out with charges.”
Japanese Stitch Journals
Japanese bookbinding (seihon) was developed around the year 610 AD. This form of bookbinding is also known as stab binding. Multiple books can be repaired this way; just punch four holes through the book near the spine and lash it together with needle and thread.
Bluecat paper has taken this a step further by elevating this simple but elegant design. Furthermore, all our books are sustainable and handmade using cotton rags and other plant fibers.
