ABOUT US

OUR STORY

The story of Catastrophe begins with a rekindled love affair with paper. In a digital age, where founder and owner Cat Arambulo-Antonio documents her stylish pursuits in fashion, beauty and travel as an influential blogger, a sense of nostalgia brings her to create her own line of uniquely designed notebooks. The same ones that hold her first thoughts as a writer, binding doodles, notes and sketches in one safe, tangible, personal and beautiful place.

Because while we find the convenience of electronic keyboards profoundly essential, a deep-seated need to put pen to paper brings us from flashing screens to clean, crisp pages.
Where blank canvases give form to the chaos and madness of inspiration; and messy first drafts turn into something extraordinary, we find there is a cathartic experience in every story of catastrophe.

WHERE PASSION TAKES US

 With roots in stationery collections, the romance with statement making pieces and functional designs will ultimately extend to a line of home and lifestyle products that reflect the brand’s playful yet polished sense of style and personality.

BRAND PROMISE

Catastrophe makes each thoughtfully designed notebook a bold style statement. Exquisitely hand-painted prints inspire the joy of creativity without compromising functionality and quality.

WHO'S THE CAT?

Sassy, confident and lighthearted with an air of mystery, our logo puts center stage a cat that sits with its back turned and tail curled - a sign she's ready to play and have fun.

TALES OF COPPER AND BRUSH

With a feline silhouette as its main icon, the logo of Catastrophe signifies the brand's lively, creative and sprightly personality. Polished in a gradient sheen of burnished rose gold to a deep copper, the hues that dominate the brand's muted visual palette paint a picture of femininity that's vividly modern but never garish - like the minimalist yet elegant statement of a woman's cocktail ring against an all black ensemble.
