Vegan Cork Leather Alternative Handbound Journal with Lined Paper

Regular price $41.00

If I fall asleep with a pen in my hand, don't remove it - I might be writing in my dreams.  ~Terri Guillemets

Cork leather. That’s right, cork. This is an amazing material. It is incredibly durable and is scratch and water-resistant. Made from the bark of the Cork Oak tree, it’s natural, renewable and eco-friendly.

This journal is 100% vegan and animal cruelty free.

The 240 pages (counting front and back) consist of white 80lb paper that has a good tooth for writing or sketching. The paper is lined.

The pages have been hand folded, pressed and then divided into 6 signatures. The signatures were hand sewn into the material with black bookbinding thread. The use of the long-stitch bookbinding method gives the journal fantastic binding strength as well as the ability to open completely flat so every inch of paper can be used. The wrap-around cover keeps the paper safe and a long black vegan cord holds everything together. The bookmark is sewn to the cover and features a handmade Tree of Life pendant.
