Nkuku Journal - Rustic Leather Journal
These stylish rustic journals beautifully handmade from untreated leather, dyed with vegetable extract and tree bark. Using age old techniques, each piece is the handiwork of one artisan from start to finish. Working as part of a cooperative of families providing fair employment and equal opportunities. The leather is a by-product.
Our Journals are filled with beautiful handmade paper, created from pieces of recycled cotton rag. This ancient paper making skill has been passed on through generations. Cotton paper has the additional benefit of being tree free as no wood pulp is used. Each sheet is painstakingly made by hand and dried by the sun before being bound in leather and carefully hand stitched.
Small: 11 x 15 x 1.5cm / Large: 15 x 21 x 1.5cm
To clean wipe with a dry cotton cloth. Do not use water or any other solvent on the surface. To prolong the look of the leather, keep away from moisture and direct heat.
