The journals are handmade in India using recycled materials. These journals are a collaboration with one of our partners in India to create a Spirit Haüs exclusive. The handmade paper is made from recycled materials for a slightly rough finish with lots of texture. The covers are white so you can colour, paint or decorate to express your own personal style!
Our partner in India, Vishruti, does an amazing job creating these journals and is such a pleasure for us to partner with her. Here’s a little about Vishruti
Since my teens, I have always been interested in Eco, Organic, Recycled, Earth-Friendly ways of living. The idea of saving trees slowly led me to foray into paper products made from recycled and handmade paper. I also started to show keen interest in re-using and up-cycling leftover fabrics into creations of usable art. Likewise, coming from a design background, I nurtured a very strong inclination of developing and using aspects of Traditional Indian Folk Art in our everyday lives. Something that could become a part of our daily routine and not just remain obscure in libraries. Indian Journals was thus born out of my fondness to re-use fabrics, of handmade paper and of my passion to revive and work with Traditional Indian Folk Art.
