Handmade Leather Wrap Journal

$ 30.00

These handsome journals are made of sustainable leather, tree-free cotton paper, and the surprise of coordinating earth-tone stripes on the handwoven fabric interiors. These distinctive journals feature hand-tooled leather bindery and wraparound straps in complementary colors. Fully compostable. 

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.
