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.
Each journal is handmade and contains approximately 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 paper is very easy to write on but does have a slight texture. We do not recommend using ink or fountain pens with this type of handmade paper; ballpoint or gel pen will work the best.
The embossing on these journals has been done with love, care and individual small handmade tools, making each journal unique. Due to the handmade nature of this leather journal, the small details of the embossed pattern might not be the same as on the image but the 'Ganesh' element of the design will be the same as shown. The leather has been tanned by our suppliers using a natural dye and the put together using a mixture of love, contemporary and traditional skills.
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.

Beautiful, looked as good if not better than picture on the website.
Beautiful detail and perfect gift.
Always good to hear that customers are pleasantly surprised by our Ganesh leather journal. It can be difficult buying such a tactile item online, so we try and help by always showing numerous & genuine images of our products. Glad it worked out even better than you were expecting :-)
