  • Katy Bilbao

    I will take this bag to my business trip to London at the end of the summer and the notebook is the perfect size to carry it with you everywhere and note new ideas, and especially it is useful when you need to give your kid some notebook to express his creativity and incredible drawings during boring and long flights, queues in supermarket…etc. My notebooks is the source of inspiration.

    I’m currently working with a non profit in the Tenderloin district of San Francisco. Every day I meet homeless, drug addicted, and physically and mentally ill residents of this area.

I would write their stories so that they are remembered by someone.
