Our company is continuously growing, and we are proud to craft our notebooks in our very own workshop in Vienna, and ship them to cities like San Francisco, Berlin and Tokyo daily.

 

Jérôme Bacquias, Founder and CEO

 

A strong passion for writing, combined with the ambition to create the world’s best notebooks drove Jérôme Bacquias to found paper republic in 2012 in Vienna. Eight years later, paper republic has established itself as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of premium quality notebooks. In the midst of our digital age, paper republic proves that the joy of writing, our need to put thoughts to paper, and our appreciation for quality craftsmanship is stronger than ever before.

paper republic handcrafts their products in their own workshop in Vienna and sells their notebooks to customers all around the world directly through their online shop. The company’s trademark are their innovative, modular leather notebooks which can be customised with a wide range of specially designed refills and are made to be lifelong companions. paper republic products are made exclusively from high-quality, durable materials, such as natural, vegetable-tanned Vachetta-leather from Italy.

 

 

After six years of traditional retail through international wholesalers and partner shops, the decision was made to focus entirely on online sales and pursue a clear D2C (Direct-to-Customer) strategy. This switch to a D2C strategy has proved to be a remarkable success. paper republic has grown by 100% online since 2018 and expects to achieve a turnover of €2.5m in 2021.

In 2020, online business has grown by more than 150% and is relentlessly expanding. More than 60.000 satisfied customers, 30.000 of which are paper republic members, speak for the brand’s success, and over 40% are returning customers.

Today the company is highly international, as shown through the online export share of over 95%, mainly in the EU and USA.

In January 2021 the company moved to a larger location in the heart of the 9th district in Vienna, in order to achieve further expansion and allow in-house production on a larger scale. Currently, 23 team members from more than 10 different countries work at paper republic in leather production, stock management, order fulfilment and shipping, customer service, marketing, purchasing and administration.

 

Product Portfolio

Paper republic’s flagship product is an innovative, durable leather journal: the grand voyageur. This modular journal can be customised with specially designed refills and is made to last a lifetime. All paper republic products are crafted with materials of the highest quality, such as vegetable-tanned Vachetta-leather from Italy and natural, sustainable paper from Austria, Germany and Sweden.

The product range has expanded considerably over the years and currently includes over 50 paper republic leather journals, portfolios, wallets, pencil cases, notebooks, calendars, card holders and more, all available in various sizes.

Our popular portfolio collection, launched in 2019, now comprises 3 standard formats: A6, A5, and A4.

We regularly offer limited editions of both leather products and refills, some of which are designed exclusively for paper republic by well-known artists.

This year, we celebrated the successful launch of the first paper republic wallet, “the square”. This top-notch leather wallet set new standards with its elegant, minimalistic and functional design.

Last but not least, a growing range of premium writing instruments – including pens rarely sold in Europe - completes the paper republic collection.

 

 

The Next Steps

Our goal is to become the BEST notebook manufacturer in the world – not the biggest. We want to keep the freedom to evolve in the direction we think is right, that reflects our values as a company and our commitment to our customers. Our focus lies on sustained and sustainable growth, bringing value to our community, our team, and our society.

We believe in investing in the future. Concretely, this means further developing our sustainability strategy, launching a new and improved online shop, opening up to new markets, developing new products, increasing our in-house production capacities, and expanding our team.

 

 

paper republic is proof that the combination of quality craftsmanship, good design, strong values and a clear E-commerce strategy has remarkably high potential. We invite all crowd investors to benefit from it.

What makes paper republic leather journals so good?

December 1, 2021 By

1. The Leather: why paper republic leather is so special: The journey to achieving the perfect leather begins on the grassy, cattle-filled fields of France. From there, we move to the rugged valleys of Tuscany, where in taking the best part of the cow (the shoulder from the hides of these farm-reared French cattle) the tanneries can
