Ola is a British papergoods brand established in 2014 by designer Katy Goutefangea. 

Working exclusively with UK makers, Ola produce layflat notebooks, cards and patterned papers with an emphasis on craft, quality and traditional manufacture. 

Each item is a celebration of pattern and simplicity. Informed by elements of architecture and abstract geometry, inspired by artists such as Sol Lewitt, Anni Albers and Donald Judd. 

Using age-old processes, such as stitching instead of glueing and ink laid with a roller instead of digitally, each piece has an individual distinction, charm and character that can only come from traditional craftsmanship.
