Large Sari Journal

SKU Code: SNB2
Availability: In stock

These stunning handmade, fair trade and eco-friendly sari journals are covered with vibrant sari fabric and bound with handmade paper. They are made by a small family business in Rajasthan, India.

They feature 125 pages of unlined, handmade paper, which is bound into the cover of the book. The paper is recycled, which means it is textured, so we don't recommend using a fountain pen on it, as the ink may run.

Available in 6 vibrant colours.

Size: 14 x 18.5 cm

A beautiful gift for someone who loves writing, sketching or just doodling. We think this book would make a fantastic visual diary or also lends itself perfectly for use as a travel journal!

These sari journals have been expertly put together by skilled craftspeople, with the pages hand stitched in.

The saris used to make these journals come from Varanasi, one of the most religious cities in the world and a centre of excellence for sari making. We use new saris as we cannot guarantee the cleanliness of recycled saris and cannot always get the correct styles and designs.

The paper is made by a charity in rural Rajasthan that promotes women's education and their social standing in rural villages. It is called khadda paper and is made from recycled cotton that has been leftover from the massive garment industry in India. Only unbleached cotton is used, so no chemicals are present.

We are a fair-trade company and regularly visit our suppliers to ensure the highest standards are met. We quality control all our products to ensure that you only receive the best products.

We pay our suppliers 50% upfront and send money to them whenever they need it. We never send anything back or not pay for damaged goods. We use a bonus system for the staff and they can earn up to 5% of our total order value which can give them an extra month's wages per year.

This product comes packaged in a resealable bag and is sent 1st class post.

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.

Look beautiful- a handful of the pages weren’t compete but as it’s handmande you can understand why Sorry that some of the pages in your journal were not complete. As you have said, with handmade items there are occasionally imperfections such as this. If the journal is unused we would be happy for you to send it back for a replacement - please just get in touch.
