Indra A4 Stitched Embossed Journal

Availability: In stock

Our glorious Fair Trade embossed and stitched leather journals are truly items of desire and make for a great diary, travel journal, inspiration book or notebook. The ornate brass clasp makes them extra special and the stitching adds a more intrepid feel.

Each journal is handmade and contains 125 pages of unlined khadda paper. Khadda paper is made from recycled cotton, is acid-free and is a beautiful paper to write or draw on.

The embossing on the covers has been done with small individual handmade tools making each album unique. The embossed pattern might not be the same as on the image but will be just as lovely and carefully made.

Dimensions: 20.5 x 30 cm (A4)

All of our leather journals 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 journals 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 a fountain pen with this type of handmade paper.

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

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

We are fortunate enough to visit them every year, having worked with them for many years following Fair Trade guidelines. We are incredibly proud that together we are able to provide people in rural villages fairly paid work that may have otherwise been difficult to find, and consider the producers and their families true friends.

The paper in all our journals and photo albums is made by a charity in rural Rajasthan that promotes women’s education and their social standing in the rural villages. For more information about the sustainable materials used, take a look at the product description.

The book came as expected, a unique version of one design as every part of the design was hand done. Bought as a Christmas present for my partner who loves the bohemian style, she loved it. So much so it took her some time to dare to actually draw in it. Came in time for Christmas and the product... Read More. Dear Matthew,
