We’re the proud founders of Avocado & Spice ☺. I guess you’re here because you want to know a bit about us. Correct? Whilst we’re far more comfortable immersing ourselves in our notebooks, we’ll give it our best shot! Ben, the son of a boat builder, grew up on the coast and from an early age dreamt of navigating the seven seas. Hannah on the other hand couldn’t have grown up any further away from the sea, and like Ben discovered her love for travel from an early age. In fact, it was in south east Asia that the couple meet. Since then, they have found that their love for travel has taken them to the four corners of world, documenting their adventures every step of the way. But one thing became apparent - they struggled to find quality journals that would stand the test of time. To answer their own problems, Avocado & Spice was born. Fast forwards and Avocado & Spice has grown into a brand that symbolises uncompromised quality, with roots embedded in the leafy suburbs of Hampstead (London) where the couple live as well as the many countries each and every one of the passionately crafted journals has ventured.
We’re proud to use completely vegan friendly products, which means that no animals are harmed in the making of our notebooks! And we’re not just talking about the faux leather covers, but the interiors too!
We only use water based adhesives in production, where others opt for animal based.. Water-based adhesives are also more environmentally sound, which is often a benefit when working with paper, fabric, wood, and construction projects.
We use 100% acid-free bamboo fibre paper, which doesn’t compromise on quality, but comes from a completely sustainable source. Each page is of 120gsm coated cream fountain pen-friendly paper with a total of 100 sheets or 200 pages. And better still, our notebooks open completely flat!
