Our highest priority is to make wonderful products of high quality that will keep your memories stored in a safe and beautiful place. We are certanly not resting as we are constantly developing Kalá albums and looking for best ways for storing your most valuable memories in safe and beautiful products.
“When I was thinking about how I want these albums, books and boxes to be made, my first wish was that
they were produced by artisans that share my passion for accuracy and attention to details. I wanted them
to aspire to make every single product to last, to make it beautiful, to make it excellent. There was one more wish I had – that we never stop seeking for better and more environment-friendly ways to produce albums that store your most valuable memories.«
Iva Novak, founder and creator of Kalá albums
Our wish was to create the most wonderful books and albums made with love, passion and attention to detail where you can store your photographs. We also wanted the “ingredients” of our products to originate from nearby countries in Europe.
After the book design is made (by a photographer or our design service), book blocks are printed and bond with archival glue. Pages are completely cohesive and lay truly flat without gutter or gap. The book blocks are then handed to our bookbinding artisans who ensure that all the work is handmade and albums, books and boxes are made with utmost precision and care from beginning to end.
With our persistency we have found many “ingredients” for our books and albums which are made in Europe and have certificates that tell a story of environment friendly production (some of them do originate from other places due to the fact that they are not produced anywhere else in the world).
We will continue with the search of eco-friendly products and elements necessary for the production from nearby countries because we believe that reducing the length of the journey also carries a strong environmental message. This is also the reason why our book cloths are made in Europe.
