A5 ruled notebook in Benita blue print.
The Ola patterned prints pay homage to the Women of the Bauhaus and the iconic weaving workshops they inhabited. Our Otti, Anni and Benita prints, named after Otti Berger, Anni Albers and Benita Koch-Otte, take inspiration from their incredible, modernist designs used for the covers of Ola notebooks and diaries.
Ola is a British paper goods brand established in 2013 by designer Katy Goutefangea. Working exclusively with UK makers, ola produce beautiful everyday items with an emphasis on craft, quality and traditional manufacture.
Each item is a celebration of pattern and simplicity. Informed by elements of architecture and abstract geometry, and inspired by artists such as Sol Lewitt, Anni Albers and Donald Judd. Using age-old processes, such as stitching instead of glueing and ink laid with a roller, each piece has an individual distinction, charm and character that can only come from traditional craftsmanship.
