Port West

London, UK

Sustainable stationery, thoughtfully made for people and the planet.

Port West was founded in 2018 by Khalifa Abubakar and Shaun Ihejetoh. It is the result of their appreciation of well-made stationery and desire to make creative practice more sustainable. Together with local binders and makers they deliver beautifully crafted, thoughtfully considered and ethically-made stationery for artists, designers and writers alike.

The name Port West is a simple play on West Port. The location of Khalifa and Shaun's architectural workshops when they were students in Edinburgh.

Function, Beauty & Form, Sustainability

Port West's debut product, the A5/01 notebook was released in September 2019. It was a passion project borne from an interest in provenance and sustainability of paper products within the creative industries.

Their notebooks are a representation of the design values they hold important. These include Function (durable materials, lay-flat designs, practical features and guides), Beauty and Form (timeless aesthetics, subtlety, emotion and identity) and Sustainability (recycled materials, low-carbon footprints, transparent and accountable production and local manufacturing).
