Henry David Thoreau

Henry David Thoreau is considered to be one of the fathers of modern-day environmentalism. Thoreau inspires us creatively with his natural observation, poetic sensibility and his "Yankee" love of practical detail. We were especially thrilled to find out that his father John was a storekeeper and pencil maker. Working in the family business Henry David Thoreau invented a new form of graphite binding for his father’s pencils. We love that one of our heroes was as obsessed with office supplies as we are.


A luxurious paper that you can feel good about using, our Luxe Recycled Cotton Fiber Stationery -Waste Not Paper is sourced from mills in the USA that practice responsible, sustainable forestry and use renewable energy resources.


For the perfect pen to put in your Robert Mason bag we suggest the J. Herbin Refillable Rollerball Pen and assorted ink cartridges (sold separately.) The inks are water based, pH neutral, non-toxic and made with all natural dyes in a variety of cool colors. You’ll never have to throw away a pen again.


Our RM Leather wristbands are our favorite upcycled pieces. Our wristbands come in a variety of styles, with skinny wristbands in natural colors – black and browns - and our bigger cuffs in vibrant colors from our Hue Leather Collection.

Often there is leftover leather from making our bags and journals and we don’t want to waste it.  Handcrafted in Ohio from top grain leather, the Jackson Leather Tech Pouch is the perfect size for ink refills, nibs, USB flash drives or whatever tiny things you need to keep organized. Upcycled, stylish and made to last with old-fashioned riveting and sewing, this pouch is a contemporary classic.
