All of our sari 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 traveling.

The sari material comes from Varanasi, one of the most religious cities in the world and a centre of excellence for sari making.

The paper used in these albums is handmade using recycled cotton (also known as khadda, kaddi or khaddi) which is 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. Please note, 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.

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

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.

The album looks beautiful and closes securely. It seems robustly made though I haven't yet stuck anything into it. My family decided to buy it specifically because it is a sustainable and fairly-traded product.

One item was without faults and beautiful. The second (big photo album) had two faults in the covering material. I have not requested a replacement which would probably be granted, but it should not be there in the first place.

The red and design of this album is even better than the picture. I am now having a very hard time being altruistic and giving it away as a friend's birthday gift!
