These leather journals are handmade by local artisans in North-West India using traditional leather craftsmanship.
Our artisans have utilised the ancient techniques passed on by their ancestors to achieve the embossing detail on these sketchbooks. Each design has been created using individual handmade tools resulting in each book being one of a kind. The embossed design can vary from those pictured.
A semi-precious stone handpicked by our artisans adorns the front cover of these journals. The colour and shape of the stone can vary from those pictured. Our makers use a variety of shades and shapes ranging from black onyx to tigers eye.
The design incorporates a wraparound elastic fastening in addition to leather stitch edging.
Each journal is bound with 100 pages of unlined cartridge or handmade paper.
Handmade paper is created using the ancient paper making skill which has been passed on through generations of artisans. The paper is created from recycled cotton rags left over from the garment industry in India. Each sheet is created by hand and then dried out in the sun before being bound together to create these beautiful journals.
These journals are ideal for sketching, taking notes and encapsulating your travel stories.
