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 built to last.

The paper used in these albums 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. Because the paper is acid-free it is perfect for protecting and preserving photographs. 

The sari material comes from Varanasi, one of the most religious cities in the world and a centre of excellence for sari making.This beautiful material is handmade using man-made fibres, as we are uncomfortable with the traditional methods used to make silk

Please note, we don't recommend using fountain pen with this type of handmade paper, as the textured paper can cause the ink to run.

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