The story behind this note-book sleeve is quite special.

Thomas Ulrich, a famous photographer and paragliding pilot was flying on a cloudy day near Interlaken with his passenger. All of a sudden another glider showed up and both crashed in the air. A horrifying moment for every one.

Thomas' wing was teared apart into two pieces. With some skills and luck he was able to lunch the rescue chute. Thomas and his passenger were able to land in a tree, where they could take some pictures of their own crazy situation.


After this incident, Thomas gave us his glider. Ara created a unique notebook sleeve as a memory of this extreme experience.
