This fair trade and environmentally friendly leather-bound journal is made in Rajasthan, India, with the leather embellished with hand embossing and an elastic band to secure the flap.
Made with leather sourced from local "Haat" markets in villages where the predominantly vegetarian population reveres goats, sheep, cows and buffalo for their value as milk animals, and where a live animal is worth far more than a dead one. Without economic incentive to kill animals for their skin, the artisans instead reclaim skins from animals who have died naturally. The paper in the journal is "tree-free." Our supplier's practices are geared toward creating more respect for all lives, as well as for the environment.

I absolutely love this journal. The design is interesting. It's well made and it's nice to know the leather is cruelty-free and the paper is recycled cotton.
This journal was better than I could imagine. The quality is excellent.
