Here at Faerly, we believe in the power of trees to restore and regenerate our planet. That's why we plant a tree for every order we receive. 🌱

We're proud to work with two amazing charities to make this happen. Home Tree is doing incredible work to restore Ireland's native woodlands and address the climate crisis by planting thousands of pioneer trees.

And Trees for the Future is helping farming families in sub-Saharan Africa to lift themselves out of poverty and regenerate their land by planting amazing productive ‘forest gardens’ that as well as restoring tree cover and regenerating soil, also create a thriving source of food, animal fodder and fuel for each family.

Every time you shop with Faerly, you're not only supporting sustainable, ethical brands, but also contributing to a brighter future for our planet. So thank you! 💚 🌳

Badly Made Books mix both hand & machine making production processes and so these notebooks are rather well made... despite the name!


Why we love Badly Made Books

They are rubbish……. but in a good way. Badly Made Books use papers made from recycled fibres and post consumer waste, including used coffee cups, that's given a new life in your notebook. Notepaper is printed using a risograph duplicator - a printing method that uses inks made from by-products from rice production.

They are anything but badly made! The recycled tape binding means that their notebooks lie flat allowing you to comfortably write on both sides of the page.

They believe less is more.  All Badly Made Books are printed, bound and shipped from their workshop in Cork City by founder Seán O’Sullivan and his team. Seán aims to use as little ink as possible to minimise the environmental impact of printing so imagery and designs are intentionally restrained and beautifully minimalist.
