"Miles To Go" Cruelty Free Fair Trade Leather Journal
A keepsake companion for life.
Handcrafted in Rajasthan in Northern India, where cows are sacred so they live out their full natural lives in safety and security. Once the cows have died, the leather is treated with vegetable dyes to minimize environmental damage, embossed with a map of the world and the phrase "miles to go" from Robert Frost's famous poem.
Within the leather cover is a detachable lokta paper unlined journal. Lokta paper is made from the bark of the lokta bush, so it is entirely sustainable in that it does not damage the bush to remove the bark - similarly to the cork tree. The paper is clean, bright and slightly textured, excellent for either drawing or writing. When you fill the journal, refills are available.
