Each journal cover is lovingly handmade in the Willamette Valley of Oregon using a variety of recyclable, biodegradable materials. It is bound using natural jute cording, no elastic, tied with a sliding knot. The journal cover is made using burlap that has been treated with a non-toxic finish, giving the journal cover structure yet flexibility. This also helps to prevent the burlap from unraveling. It has raw edges, meaning it is not sewn…it is supposed to be distressed/organic looking.
The paper in the notebooks dyed with organic, fairly-traded coffee (dark roast, to be exact) and dried to create a rustic, crinkly, organic feel. It also gives each page an energizing scent of coffee beans! The journal inserts contain 24 pages (and 2 velum pages, front and back) that can be used for journaling and doodling (not recommended for paint or watercolor). Each journal is bound using natural jute cording, no elastic.
PLEASE NOTE: Since each journal is handmade and crafted using natural materials, there will be variations in each item. The paper has been intentionally stained with coffee and is very crinkly. The imperfections are meant to be beautiful. If you are not a fan of the scent of coffee, this may not be the right journal for you. If you love the smell when you first walk into a coffee shop, then you will probably enjoy using this journal. 😊
