EMBOSSED TREE OF LIFE LEATHER ALBUM


Size: Large - 260 x 240 mm, Extra Large 260 x 365 mm


Our beautiful Fair Trade embossed leather photo albums are the perfect way to display and protect treasured photographs.


These handmade, Fair Trade and eco-friendly leather albums are made by a small family business in Rajasthan, India and feature a Tree of Life embossed design and comes in two sizes.


Each photo album is handmade and contains 30 pages of acid-free khadda paper, each interleaved with tissue paper, and can hold up to 120 6"x 4" photos (up to 240 in the Extra Large size).


The paper is hand-made khadda paper, made from recycled cotton (also known as kaddi or khaddi) that has been left over from the massive garment industry in India. The paper does not contain any chemicals as we only use unbleached cotton. It is made by a charity in Rajasthan that promotes women’s education and their social standing in the rural villages. The leather has been tanned by our suppliers and the albums have been crafted using a mixture of love, contemporary and traditional skills. The embossing has been expertly created using small individual tools. Due to the handmade nature of these leather albums, the smaller details and the embossed pattern on the back might not be exactly the same as on the image.


The albums are also perfect to use as a scrapbook, sketchbook or doodle book.


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 leather albums are handmade by a small family business in Rajasthan, India.

They 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 paper used in these albums 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.

Because the paper is acid-free it is perfect for protecting and preserving photographs. Photos can be added using photo corners, spray mount or just glue. Photograph corners can be found in any good photography shop or stationers.

The leather used is a by-product of the meat industry in India and is tanned using only natural dyes.
