Description

Beautifully long-stitched 8.5x11" hardcover sketchbook made with a bue and gold floral lokta paper with natural linen book cloth. The inside features 120 pages of white drawing paper. This book is stitched with blue waxed Irish linen thread.

Not only does a long stitch make a for a unique binding, but also allows the journal to lay flat – making it the perfect choice for illustrating and writing.

This journal is made using Nepalese handmade lokta paper! The loka plant is an environmentally sustainable source for paper fibers, unlike paper made from trees (as trees take decades to grow). Plus, lokta foresting reinforces the local employment of poor rural women in Nepal. And its durable and feels amazing to touch. Incredible, right? I think so too :)

Because this item is handmade, each Journal has its own subtle differences – no two pieces look the same, giving you a completely one-of-a-kind book. There will be slight variations in color, size, and shape. Love and embrace the unique qualities of your handcrafted Journal.
