Our hand woven fabric Journals are thoughtfully handcrafted down to the last weave. Master artisans in urban northwest India hand weave cotton fabric using home looms creating many beautiful patterns in various colours. This community is a well-known for their weaving expertise and is sought after for fine finishing details. This journal features geometric blue wave motif textile, unlined pages and a colorful pom pom tie closure. The weaving of fabric provides meaningful and sustainable employment to weavers in villages of India. The book binding and handmade paper making supports many artisan families involved in these trades. Thank you for buying this journal and supporting hand craft!
This hard bound journal has 48 handmade cotton recycled blank pages inside.
Our 100% recycled cotton paper is made by artisans in Rajasthan, India, following a generations-old process. First, discarded cotton scraps are collected from the textile industry. Cotton is broken down into fibers using a traditional wheel press and then soaked overnight. Next, the pulp is strained, pressed into pages and hung to dry. After ironing, crisp pear goes either into journals or into the hands of artisans for screen-printing, embroidery or patchwork. The entire process is tree-free, non-toxic, and conserves and filters water for reuse in irrigation.
