Bark Cloth Journals by BulamuArt from Uganda

$12.00

When I 1st held this journal, I wanted to know what it was made out of. It's made out bark cloth. Bark cloth, what's that? They beat sodden strips of inner bark of a special tree until it creates sheets. It resembles rough cloth. They then make the journals. I knew you guys needed this in your life! This hard back journal was designed with a kitenge cloth elephant and 2 giraffes on the cover. The paper is lined and there is an attached ribbon bookmark. Due to the variations in kitenge, you may not receive the exact journal pictured but a journal in that color family. Each journal is truly one of a kind!

Dimensions: 5.5 inches

BulamuArt is a community of young artists started by Henry Kiryowa Luja. His goal was to try to bring together all the young people who have left Bulamu Children’s Village, a local orphanage in Uganda, teaching them various techniques and skills in making beautiful art pieces while also teaching them to work together, laying a foundation which will enable them to make it in life after coming leaving the supervision of the orphanage.

Empowering people. Changing lives.
