We are a small company specialized in making handmade fine art wedding and portrait photo books, albums, boxes, folios and more. Our products have been made to preserve the most important memories in your life. In our studio we aspire to move away from fast-paced culture, towards a more appreciative way of working and living. We value awareness, time for creativity, renewable and sustainable design, organic and ethically sourced materials, staying true to what we love and searching for new and better ways to improve ourselves and what we create.
“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
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 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.
The same goes for our other products which carry the same priority of making wonderful products of high quality that keep your memories stored in a safe and beautiful place for generations to come. Each of our products deserves to be made and is made individually for every client with the most accurate precision and subtle composure.
Our goal is to follow the green approach and fair trade so all our materials are produced in nearby countries and with 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). No products are made out of or available in leather since we are an animal-friendly company.
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.
