Field Notes

  One of the newest products to drop through the doors here at Fat Buddha are Field Notes. These uniquely designed range of notebooks are the brainchild of Portland-based graphic designer Aaron Draplin.

The concept for Field Notes was born out of Draplins love and affection for American farmers notebooks which he had begun collecting and archiving in 1993 as he travelled over the US. After years of collecting these notebooks and years of design work for other companies, including Nike, Patagonia and Burton snowboards among others, Draplin decided to take his passion to another level. In 2008, he designed and produced a small range of notebooks in the style of the ones he had collected for years and handed them out among his circle of friends, the rest as they say is history. 

 Now in 2012, Field Notes is a successful business producing many styles, sizes and colours of notebooks, some of which are now available instore. The pick of the bunch is the Field Notes National Crop Edition boxset. The boxset celebrates the very roots of the Field Notes company by celebrating American farming through 6 beautifully constructed memo books filled with facts about american crops, a paper map and embroidered logo patch all packed in a custom box manufactured in Brookston, Indiana.
