Our Journals & Photo Albums Producer
Our beautiful sari and leather journals and photo albums are handmade by a small family business we’ve worked with since our beginnings in 2001. Over the years we’ve formed a truly special bond and consider the producers and their families real friends. We design our products together and value their insight into the mixture of traditional and contemporary techniques that can be used to create the stunning details.
We’re incredibly proud that together we’re able to provide people living in rural villages surrounding Rajasthan fairly paid work that would have otherwise been difficult to find, following Fair Trade guidelines. When we first began, the business employed 3 artisans to create our products. Over 20 years later they’re now able to employ over 35 artisans exclusively creating products for us, including home workers in local villages.
The recycled cotton paper in each book is handcrafted by a charity they work with in Rajasthan using traditional techniques. Through their work, the charity aims to promote women’s education and social development in rural villages. For more information about the sustainable materials used, take a look at the product pages.
