Reviving the art of writing: Chambers of Ink brings world renowned PaperBlanks and Paper-Oh to India
The pages are still blank, but there is a miraculous feeling of the words being there, written in invisible ink and clamouring to become visible. ~Vladimir Nabakov
Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart. ~William Wordsworth
Since ancient times writing and chronicling have been more than just putting words on a sheet of paper. It has always been a well developed art which needed the right balance of everything involved with writing, including, the paper.
Even today best of poets, writers and storytellers long for that uniquely crafted sheet of paper, notebook, and diary which will help them create those time-defying prose and verses. The right tool can elevate one’s creativity and productivity.
Aiming to revitalize the art of writing, journaling and chronicling, Chambers of Ink has introduced world renowned Hartley and Marks’ quality range of notebooks, diaries and journals to India. Under the partnership, Hartley and Marks will offer its range of ‘PaperBlanks’ and ‘Paper-Oh’ products to the Indian customers.

It’s amazing because these journals are inspired right from French textile patters to Persian binding art to Japanese lacquer boxes right here to embroidery from Gujarat. It’s incredible how they go world over and imbibe their art.
Jose Andrada, Head, Hartley & Marks, India, said, “Coming to the Indian market was a much awaited step and we are very happy to begin our association with a country which has such rich history and interesting stories to document, chronicle and share. Even though India is the youngest country, the people here have a deep sense of respect for their past. While they are modern and futuristic in their approach, they respect their history,” said.
