SNB7

Our Fair Trade mini sari notebooks will add a splash of colour to your thoughts, notes and to-do lists. Covered in Indian sari fabric, these gorgeous handmade notebooks are the perfect addition to any bag!


Our mini sari notebooks have been expertly crafted using a mixture of contemporary and traditional methods, and the pages have been bound by hand, so they are strong and perfect for travelling. The sari fabric comes from Varanasi, one of the most religious cities in the world and a centre of excellence for sari making.



Each small notebook contains 30 pages of unlined khadda paper. Khadda paper is made from recycled cotton, is acid-free and a beautiful paper to write or draw on. Each notebook is unique – some may come with a splash of petals on the pages and some with off-white paper.



Due to the handmade nature of these products, colour and designs may slightly vary, but loveliness comes as standard.

Product Description

Details

All of our notebooks are handmade by a small family business in Rajasthan, India.

The paper used in these notebooks is handmade using recycled cotton (also known as khadda, kaddi or khaddi) leftover from the massive garment industry in India. It is acid-free because we only use unbleached cotton and it produces a beautiful paper, easy to write, draw or paint on. We don't recommend using fountain pen with this type of handmade paper.

Make a Difference

Indian Making a differenceBy 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 beautiful sari material is handmade using man-made fibres because we are uncomfortable with the  traditional methods used to make silk.

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.
