Finest leather from Maison Fichet (est.1896, Lyon), combined with accessories manufactured by Maison Poursin (est.1830, Paris), everything to be assembled at Soumkine Atelier (est.2016, Paris). That’s how we imagine combining savoir-faire français with a clean and functional design. Meticulously chosen fabrics, perfect custom-made cut, accurately tailored for Soumkine books — treat your favourite journal with a jacket that suits it best.
The analogue side of life is where the ideas and plans all take root and my consultancy would have been much less fun and successful these years without Sumkin.
The feel of Soumkine books is pure luxury. You can tell when you hold one in your hands that it's exquisitely made and of the finest materials.
The slim design of the universal planner with fountain pen friendly paper was the perfect combination for me, so I purchased an ample supply to use for both work and pleasure.
In the morning while I drink my coffee, I am able to sit down and just purge thoughts through my own system and not feel confined to what I write down. Having a grid makes for easy organization of thoughts… I’m not stuck to any linear form and can choose between words and/or doodles.
I love how the paper feels and how well the notebook holds up to everyday use. I can use all inks for planning on it.
