This book is meant to be used. When we have beautiful things made by hand, we are more likely to use them in a meaningful way. I begin by hand-tearing soft white, unlined, acid-free, 80# text paper that is ideal for drawing and writing with pen or pencil. The exposed spine stitching allows the book to lay flat when it is open. Each book is covered with plant-dyed organic cotton/hemp fabric or tea-dyed printed cotton canvas and adorned with a hand embroidered design. Our fabric is dyed by hand in small batches, so there is variation within each color. Each journal contains 116 pages and measures 5 x 6.5”.
