These albums have been lovingly crafted using a mixture of both contemporary and traditional skills. The embossing & stitching is expertly done using small individual handmade tools, making each album unique. The pages are bound into the leather by hand, so it is built to last.
The leather used is a by-product of the meat industry in India and is tanned using only natural dyes.
The pages are made with khadda paper, which is made from recycled cotton that has been left over from the massive garment industry in India. Only unbleached cotton is used to ensure there is no chemicals present. The paper is made by a charity in rural Rajasthan that promotes women's education and their social standing in rural villages.
The pages of the album are plain so you have the freedom to fill the pages however you would like. Photos can be added using photo corners (available in any good photography shop), spray mount or just glue.
We don't recommend using fountain pens or similar to this type of handmade paper, as it very textured and the ink may run.
Due to the handmade nature of these products colour and designs may slightly vary but loveliness comes as standard.
