Leather Journal Large by Akiru Project from Uganda

$34.00

These rustic journals are made with great skill. The paper is 100% handmade using traditional methods that have been passed down from generations in Uganda. It truly is the star of this journal. It has such an incredible feel to it as you write and will not bleed through. The leather is cow-hide that has been naturally tanned and minimally processed, giving it a very soft and natural feel. To top it off, the wrap around is completed with a vintage East Africa 10-shilling coin as the closure. This journal is unlined. This would make a great gift!

Due to the rustic nature of the leather, there are slight variations and marks in the leather. It truly makes up the beauty and one of a kind of each journal  

Dimensions: 7.75 x 6 inches
