A notebook that has really cheered up my afternoon! The cover is so soft, pages have a good weight and really nicely bound. The little red dragonflies on the page edge is such a pretty design and with a lovely colour scheme. This is the second item I've had from this company.
The design is gorgeous. The beautiful endpapers really lend a sense of elegance. The cover is soft and flexible and sturdy. The notebook lies flat when opened which is nice, and if you wanted you can also fold it in half for easier note taking. I appreciate the numbered pages and the index in the front. Overall I think the quality is quite nice and it seems to have been designed quite thoughtfully
The ZenArt journal is exactly what I was hoping for in creating zentangle art. I love the fact it has a Z on the cover. The feel of the faux leather is wonderful and enhances the quality IMO. The dragonfly details on the end pages and page edges are a nice touch, too. This feels like a substantial and quality journal.

Frequently Asked Questions
A dotted journal is suitable for bullet journaling – a method of personal organization developed by Ryder Carroll. The method organizes schedules, to-do lists, significant events, milestones and other organizational tasks in a single journal.
However, our dotted journal is designed in an open-minded way, to allow you to choose which system to use (or not). Having four index pages and numbers on each page, continuous lines of dots across the pages, you can express yourself creatively.
Good question! Our Modernista series dotted journals are pure joy for your aesthetical and organizing buds. They are all designed by our co-founder Ardak Kassenova, and are very unique. Each of them has a splash of color inside and outside, and even on the edges. The traditional Japanese design on the edges and end-papers, unique for each journal color-variation, has a positive meaning, and is a metaphor and our good wish to you.
Designed to make organizing on-the-go easier, each dotted journal is meticulously handcrafted using recyclable materials, with perfectly aligned dotted grids (5mm spacing) across both pages, and no lines to ruin your bullets but small dots to help you organize. Our dotted journal also features a 180° lay-flat spine that stays open so you can organize at ease.
This paper is amazing! Our latest journals have thicker paper of 120 gsm – as many of you requested. It has the same satin-smooth surface, it's acid-free, FSC certified, ink-proof and won't create feathering if you use a fountain pen, or similar. Each journal has 160 pages or 80 sheets of dotted ivory paper that won't reflect light in your eyes in the way ordinary white papers might.
Acid-free means that the pH level of the paper is 7.0 (neutral) or higher (alkaline). In general, acid-free papers are expected to last for decades under normal storage conditions. Don't worry; it's still biodegradable.
FSC is an acronym for the Forest Stewardship Council®, which is an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world's forests. The FSC system provides an assurance that products such as wood and paper have been harvested in a socially and environmentally responsible manner.
Our journals are encased in a vivid-colored faux leather-bound cover that is soft and smooth, scratch-resistant, flexible and vegan.
Our journals are perfect for daily journaling, art journaling and daily planning. The 120 gsm acid-free paper is durable enough for ink, markers, glue and sticky tapes, rough erasing, shading or art journaling. Your options are endless. You can consider journaling ideas as therapy .

The paper is thicker than moleskin so there is only minimal ghosting. However, it isn’t as smooth as I would like. Please keep in mind that I am incredibly picky about my journals and I am definitely using this one.
Love these journals. Easy to use for bullet journaling but I use for other purposes as well. The only reason I give 4 instead of 5 stars is I have had two elastic breaks out of the six in various colors I have ordered prior to this. Hoping they have fixed that quality issue with my latest batch. No bleed thru, pleasing paper color, soft suede-y feel cover in great shades. What’s not to love!?!
Hi Charlotte ,

Pretty color (teal) and binding seems to be holding up after a few months of use. Wish there was a bit more room for expansion in the binding, though, because I like to put lots of sticky notes on the pages, but at least the elastic holds it all together.As others have noted, the pages are a bit thin, so I have to write quickly with anything other than a pencil to avoid bleeding through. So, depends on what you're using the journal for. Weight-wise, the thin pages are kinda nice.The one weird complaint I have is that this notebook was super STINKY right out of the package. Like, I left it hanging over a clothes hanger in an unused room for over a month before I used it, and it still didn't smell pleasant for another month. 4 months later, the smell is gone.I went ahead and kept it, since I really needed something to start my 2021 bullet journal/planner, and wanted to avoid going into stores around Christmastime. Overall I'm glad I did, and it has been working pretty well, but it has room for improvement.
Love their journals! I have three different colors now. Wonderful customer service too.
