Your Sustainable journey has begun. Step forward….
Let’s use the example of one our signature notebooks to show you how it works!
Step 1 – Measure the extra material you have (whether it’s fabric scraps or end of rolls, collect them all-the smallest shapes and size are no challenge for us)
Step 2 – Decide the amount of sustainable notebooks you would like to order in (invest in sustainability with this great branding opportunity concept, make yourself look good by doing something right, it’s a win win situation-trust us)
Step 3 – Pick the size of the notebook (we are happy to do a mix bunch A5, 5X7, A6, Jotters, Calendars, Diaries, Journals)
Step 4 – Choose the type of paper you would like inside the notebook (Plain, Ruled, Sketch). All our papers are recycled and FSC certified.
Step 5 – Send us the offcuts also if you have any of your tags with branding on it, or any other secret elements that we could use. (We love surprises when we open that Pandora box we receive from you and go ‘Yeeeeeh’ the offcut design look amazing, should we do this, should we do that, the creative juices are flowing. It’s our time now, you sit back and relax )
Step 6 – Designing of the Bespoke recycled fabric notebook (We can’t just make replicas, so what is that we can do so that your collection of offcut notebooks are truly bespoke, as per your brand, in its look, personality and style.
Step 7 – Communicate -through words- a message printed on the first page ,that you would like to share with the person who will receive your brand of offcut notebooks(Together lets make sure it’s a memorable one, so that the words stay with them and thought excites them about you, leaving an impression)
Step 8 – Time to take off, packed and labeled. Where is that local courier guy, right outside the Kapdaa door, day or night we do this together,his is a family run business, it’s our bit for supporting the local community.
(No big courier brand for us, we like knowing our guys name and so does he like his coffee at ours, when he picks up or comes back to deliver)
Step 9 – The lot is ready! Yes we fly out a whole lot of orders together to reduce Carbon footprints (No compromises on turn around but environment is a priority).
Step 10 – Production. Your excess offcuts bring the biggest smile on the faces of our executors, creator’s, workers, the spine of Kapdaa The offcut company, back in India. The notebook factory can only stay up and running when machines do not replace skilled labor and ethical wages are never compromised. This is our ethos and our commitment and we vouch by it (Take a bow, your brands order has provided them the ’ability’ to sustain’)
Step 11– Oops! The man with the van- he’s to fast we just missed him . At Delhi airport, with his small tuk tuk/tempo, always on time, ready to ride off to the factory, running around to collect all the elements needed by the workers, while they doll up the notebooks in your offcut fabrics. He is the glue that binds the whole process together. As he makes sure he collects the ready lot, smelling fresh, looking good, making his way to the airport, surely getting your offcut notebooks on that flight, in time, back to UK. (He is committed and we are committed to him Our Man with the van)
