These items come from my man in India, Salim. He has run his business since 1997 and strives to create the very best in handmade leather goods, all created by time served and traditional ways. Each piece is hand made from start to finish, all with hand tools so each book is filled with a sense of pride and creativeness from each of the artisans. The paper used in this collection has been handmade and is ecologically and environmentally friendly. Using a variety of materials sourced from cotton mills as cotton waste, jute, husk, waste wool, even flower petals! The leather has been tanned by hand and has been utilised from his local farming district.
You may think that these may seem a little more expensive than others available elsewhere, but these are hand crafted to order rather than mass produced. Each book that is purchased goes towards Salim’s business and the support he provides to the community and his wonderful artisans. Each book measures approximately 7” x 5”, even the back of the journals have designs to make a fabulous piece, regardless which way round it is! Contain approximately 110 pages, so loads of room for your magickal scribbles!
Clasps are featured as a lock. As each book is carefully hand crafted and bound, the design may vary slightly due to embossing technique. Natural colourations from the leather may be seen, so may also differ slightly from the photographs. Where gemstones are used, variations in colour and type may be seen. The paper is made from recycled natural products, again you may see a slight difference in paper colouration. Due to the highly absorbent nature of the recycled paper it would be advisable not to use runny inks or paints - I wouldn’t want your hard work to bleed into the paper!
Moonstone: This is a very special leather bound Grimoire/Book of Shadows! For those who love moonstones (let’s be honest - who doesn’t?) may be a bit of a must-have. This is a handcrafted leather covered book featuring woven leather braiding and impressed designs to accentuate that lovely gemstone. an ideal gift for someone starting out! Great for those who love honouring Moon magick and Goddess.
Use it as a BOS or Grimoire, record your thoughts and mindful minutes inside, write poems, stories whatever you choose, it’s a lovely journal! It has lined, good quality paper on the inside, so inks could be used in this one.
Measures 7” x 5”
