Emerald Nailhead Journal

$ 33.00

Beautiful and sustainable! This elegant journal features brass nailhead accents and embossed motifs inspired by Indian henna art. Made of vegetable-tanned, azo-free leather.

This is a fair trade item handmade by artisans in India. These artisans have been practicing the art of paper making for generations. The paper is made from recycled cotton waste from the textile industry. The artisans collect the cotton scraps and turn them into a pulp, which in turn is used to make the paper. This paper is rich in texture. 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.

        Wasim was born and raised in Sanganer village, in west Rajasthan, India. His family has been in the paper making industry for over 80 years, and he inherited the art from his elders. Made from recycled cotton rags, the raw paper is then converted into beautiful products such as journals, albums and other types of social stationery without the aid of heavy machinery.
