This fair trade and environmentally friendly leather bound journal is made in Rajasthan, India. The leather is embellished with hand embossing and an elastic band secures the flap. All the Leather used is “Cruelty Free”, which means leather obtained from naturally dead animals. Livestock has a lot of agricultural and household value for the vegetarian population in this region (Rajasthan, India) which makes it economically unwise to kill animals for their skin.
This is a thick journal with handmade cotton rag paper inside, making it 100% tree-free. Artisans in our Eco Friendly Papers workshop collect cotton waste and turn it into a pulp. The final result: a rich texture paper, great for writing, drawing and painting. It makes for a great gift for any occasion.
