Pilgrim Notebooks is a grass-roots business in Adelaide, Australia, handcrafting quality notebooks that are genuine, practical and durable.
It began in 2015 to fulfill a simple brief. The founder of Pilgrim Notebooks, Christopher, wanted a durable notebook that could perform equally well halfway up a mountain trail as it could at a desk. Dissatisfied with the lack of products filling this niche, he began making his own.
Pilgrim Notebooks has since become something of a manifesto. Our wares use highest-quality materials and are process rich. From conception to finished product they embody ideals of integrity and practicality over superficial decoration.
We hope you can take our products on your own pilgrimage, whatever it may be.
Christopher began Pilgrim Notebooks in 2015 to create practical, durable notebooks that could perform equally well halfway up a mountain trail as they could at a desk.
He is a notebook maker and a fledging ecologist with a penchant for researching tree hollows. He has a passion for applying rigorous analytical skills acquired throughout his study in making his products. Despite his background he steers clear of green-wash advertising, finding joy in applying sustainability in his business as part of holistic life approach.
He takes his latest prototypes just about everywhere, and tests them in some of Australia’s most rugged locations (most recently, he tested the durability of glues in the scorching heat of the Simpson Desert).
