Ito Bindery is a factory that has been operating in the Sumida area of Tokyo for 80 years. The current owner, Masaki Ito, is the third generation owner of the the company. Although family businesses are rare in a metropolis such as Tokyo, there are many of these kinds of businesses in Sumida including several related to the paper industry. Many members of the Ito family have a hand in the company, and it is not uncommon to see previous generations lending a hand in the factory.
Ito Bindery’s operations currently focus on the manufacturing of our original line of memo blocks and drawing pads, as well as the production of flyers, leaflets and brochures. Our sleek stationery line is popular with those in creative fields, minimalists, and those who admire simple yet functional designs.
