Busy, busy being creative..!

Journals & Notebooks

Many moons ago I used to import handmade leather and Sari journals and notebooks from a family of artisans in Jaipur, India. I'd gone there on holiday and next to the hotel was the most amazing shop filled to the ceiling with handmade leather and sari notebooks of all shapes, sizes and colours. Lots were bought as gifts and I stayed in touch with Sunil who ran the business with his family.

Once back in the UK, the books were so well recieved that I decided to start importing them directly from the family who made them. This was all pre-social media days and turned out it was hard on my physical and mental health selling at shops and christmas markets so after a while decided to wrap it up.

However - I do still have some of the beautiful books left and it occured to me that you might really like them and that you might actually like the opportunity to buy some, either for yourself, or as gifts for others, so here's what I have available:

Any questions - please drop me a line! Thank you x
