Product Description

These handmade, fair trade and eco friendly leather covered journals are made by a small family business in Rajasthan, India. These journals have 125 pages of hand-made khadda paper, made from recycled cotton that has been left over from the massive garment industry in India. They are handmade and don't contain any chemicals as we only use unbleached cotton. The paper is made by a charity in rural Rajasthan that promotes women's education and their social standing in the rural villages. Each journal has been expertly stitched around the outside to give a more intrepid feel. We are a fair trade company and regularly visit our suppliers to ensure the highest standards. We also quality control all our products to ensure that you only receive the best. We pay our suppliers 50% upfront and send money to them whenever they need it and we never send anything back. To incentivise the staff, we have a bonus system in place and they can earn up to 5% of our total order value, which can equate to an extra month's wages per year. The leather has been tanned by our suppliers and the journals have been crafted using a mixture of love, contemporary and traditional skills. The embossing has been expertly created using small individual handmade tools making each journal unique. Due to the nature of these leather journals the embossed pattern might not be the same as on the image. The pages have been bound by hand so they are strong and perfect for travelling. And these beautiful books don't have to be used as a journal, they're also perfect as a scrap book and the paper is great for water-colours. This product comes packaged in a re-sealable bag and is sent 1st class as standard. The post is not always as reliable as it might be, so please leave five days for delivery. Due to the fact that these products are individual, rustic and handmade, the colour and designs may slightly vary but loveliness comes as standard.

Relatively pricey but truly hand made in all aspects of its construction, and good looking as well as very different from the mass produced journals in ready supply, returns to a time when the act of writing itself was something to be appreciated and enjoyed, all in all excellent value

The jounal was fine, although the outer cover had a 4 inch crease/fold in it which I think was due to a blemish in the natural hide used in the covering leather ? Quality control is probably not that stringent in the country of origin,, The journal is a gift for a relative going on a 6 month travel adventure so it'll end up with quite a few folds and marks on it eventually anyway, but a bit dissappointing for a new gift. Unfortunately the trip started very close to the delivery date so there wasn't time to try and replace it. Unfortunate too, that the provider didn't check the product thoroughly before dispatch. But still a good product for the price,, and it smelt authentic !!!

The detail is lovely on both the back and the front. A very tactile product. I was a bit worried about the paper as it looks a bit like kitchen roll. However, I found using a frixon gel pen was no problem. I have found writing on the inside of each page a bit tricky as the leather cover is bumpy and I don't want to bend it back. The clasp is lovely and sturdy.

Extremely good quality product, nice real leather and the paper feels great, pleasure to write on, a bit pricey but the money it's nice knowing some of the money is going to those less fortunate.

Feels great in the hand and can't wait to see how it ages.

I bought to use as a journal. It looks really good, well made and smells nice too. With the clasp on the front it is a little hard to write on the left hand side, until you're a little way into it and you can then bend the page back in itself. Ball point pen works fine, but I found it didn't look too nice. I bought a gel pen and this looks really nice on the pages.
