All of our notebooks are specifically designed for ideation. This means that our goal is to have a large amount of pages per book, as opposed to only a few thick pages. We have found that our paper works well with many fountain pens, depending on the nib width and flow.
Our paper is off white 90gsm.
Our dot grid is perfectly* spaced at 0.5cm (0.2"). *In our humble opinion. ;)

The Guardian is specifically designed for the Confidant in Flagship size. It does not fit the Vanguard!
Excellent question! The Squire, Guardian, and Manifesto are all made in the USA. The Confidant, Vanguard, Archer and Accessories, and Refills are made in Taiwan, China, Portugal, and Germany. Mosaic and Spark are made in the USA. All of our products are designed in New York City.
Ok, ok, we snuck this one in. Hope you enjoy our products!

Company Questions


Baron Fig makes meticulously designed tools for thinkers.
Our Mission: To champion thinkers in their journey to create and inspire the world.
The process of creating can be boiled down to a simple dichotomy: Discipline and Impulse. The creative journey revolves around having the discipline to stick with it and the impulse to go places you and others haven't. The Greek gods/brothers Apollo (discipline) and Dionysus (impulse) represent this dichotomy perfectly. "Baron" is derived from the Apollonian symbol of "soldier", and "Fig" is a symbol of Dionysus. Thus Baron Fig, Discipline & Impulse.
People who enjoy exploring their ideas, either professionally or in their personal life. To name a few: Designers, Journalists, Illustrators, Entrepreneurs, Students, Writers, Choreographers, Architects, Musicians, Poets, Engineers—and so on.
Thank you! There is one thing we need your help with: spreading the word.
