A handstitched journal and pencil gift set packaged in our signature upcycled wood tray. The cover is made from handloom cotton printed with vegetable dyes. The cloth is made directly from raw-cotton in the villages close to cotton fields combining traditional Indian principles of cloth making with modern small-scale technology. It avoids baling and un-bailing of cotton by heavy machinery and unnecessary transport. It has a beautiful texture, is soft and keeps its shape for ages. Handloom weaving is today the largest non-farm employer in the country, and mostly rural at that. Each region has its particular weave, and that's the beauty of handloom. Individually packed with an intricately-cut metal bookmark.
