A4 Indra Clasp Stitch Embossed Leather Journal 9632
Brand Paper High
Our glorious Fair Trade embossed and stitched leather journals are truly items of desire and make for a great diary, travel journal, inspiration book or notebook. The ornate brass clasp makes them extra special and the stitching adds a more intrepid feel.
Each journal is handmade and contains 125 pages of unlined khadda paper. Khadda paper is made from recycled cotton, is acid-free and is a beautiful paper to write or draw on.
The embossing on the covers has been done with small individual handmade tools making each album unique. The embossed pattern might not be the same as on the image but will be just as lovely and carefully made.
Size: 20.5 x 30 cm (A4)
Due to the handmade nature of these products colour and designs may slightly vary but loveliness comes as standard.
By buying this product you will be supporting the work of skilled artisans and craftspeople in Rajasthan, India.
All the products in this range are made by a small family business in Rajasthan who we have worked with for many years following Fair Trade guidelines. We visit every year and we now know the producers and their families well and consider them true friends. We are proud that together we are able to provide people in rural villages fairly paid work that would have otherwise been difficult to find.
The khadda paper used in the products is handmade using recycled cotton leftover from the massive garment industry in India. The paper is made by a charity in rural Rajasthan that promotes women’s education and their social standing in the rural villages.
The leather used for the covers is a byproduct of the meat industry and is tanned using natural dyes.
We respect our producers and it is very important to us that we treat them fairly. We pay all our producers 50% upfront and send money to them whenever they need it and we never return anything, even if it’s damaged. To incentivise the staff, we have a bonus system in place.
