Japanese binding

Japanese binding, a unique and handcrafted finish

The Japanese binding consists of a process of hand-sewing the leaves with a very elegant and special result. It is used to give uniqueness, character and added value.

What is Japanese binding?

Japanese binding is an artisan technique made entirely by hand. For its use it is necessary to use cardboard covers with sufficient thickness and a resistant thread.


Unlike other types of thread binding, Japanese-style stitching is not hidden behind the spine of the book, but is fully visible.

Characteristics of Japanese binding

Japanese binding can be used for binding books and notebooks.

Types of Japanese binding

Japanese binding has variants to make unique projects. Different styles of stitching can be used for binding. Different types of threads and colors can also be used. Although thread is the most common material for Japanese binding, similar materials such as ribbons or cords can also be used.
