Why locals love it

It is a tiny bookbinding workshop producing original diaries, notebooks and skechbooks made from plastic bags, old clothes, newspapers, supermarket leaflets, etc. They recycle everything and make things functional and beautiful again. Located in funky Žižkov district. Perfect match!

Why you should visit it

It is probably one and only place in Prague where you can see making diaries and other paper stuff from recycled materials. Every single item is original and 100% Czech handmade. They have also very reasonable prices. With every purchased product you will also receive description of what the cover is made from.

Special tip

Skoba means a hook nail in Czech language.

Hiya, I just bought one of these sketchbooks in the Prague national gallery on holiday and have fallen in love with it. Being from the UK I was wondering if there is any way I could purchase more of the portrait A5 ones from here?

This shop has very well made notebooks and sketchbooks. It has unique covers made from recycled materials. In the shop you can see the workers making and binding the books while you shop. This place has high quality prodcuts for affordable prices.
