Stunning handmade, fair trade and eco friendly leather covered journal lovingly embossed by rural Indian craftsmen.
These journals have approx 60 pages of unlined khadda paper; khadda is recycled cotton that has been left over from the massive garment industry in India.
It is handmade and doesn’t contain any chemicals as we use only unbleached cotton and is very easy to write on. We don't recommend using fountain pen with this type of handmade paper.
The paper is made by charity in rural Rajasthan that promotes women’s education and their social standing in the rural villages.
Our Fair Trade embossed leather notebooks come in beautiful rich colours and make for a great diary, travel journal, inspiration book or simple notebook.
The embossing on the covers has been done with small individual handmade tools making each notebook unique. The embossed pattern might not be the same as on the image but will be just as lovely and carefully made.
Available in 3 sizes including a handy small pocket size. These notebooks are also available in crimson red, emerald green and fuschia. Please look at our store front for these products.
