The Story behind the Art:
There are many artisans for the products as well as many other Indonesian products that we specifically import. Other Indonesian importer may not get their products directly from the manufacterers as we do but I'm assuming it is similar. For each product, whether it be albums/journals, storage benches, trays, lamps, hawaiian shirts, sarongs, or any of our handmade products from Indonesia, small villages in a remote areas in Bali, Indonesia handmake these products and sell them to us (importer) so that the money that is made helps support their living, family, and expenses. We sometimes have to travel 2-3 hours to get to these remote areas because of the roads (dirt, single lane, very hilly, etc. The villages depend on us (importers and consumers) to purchase these products to help them survive, be able to help raise their children enabling them to go to school and hope that they have better lives. The areas are very poor but the poeple are very happy and content with what they have taking nothing for granted. They don't need more or less to survive.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
This album is very pretty. Bright leaf green and deep naturals. There are straps to hold your photos or memos in will fit a 4x6 or 5x7 vertically. If you want horizantal viewing you have to turn the book. The album is pretty strong in natural smell eminating from the foliage and papers used to make the book. I would suggest opening it from the plastic wrapper to let it "air" out a bit.
Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

this is a very delicate, photo album, made from the natural leaves and botanicals from that country, Indonesia. It is lovely, but very delicate. A small piece had broken off during shipping, it was a small branch on the binding. I purchased it as a gift for one of my husband's client. I wanted something for her home, or family. It came wrapped in celophane, so, I could not tell if it smells of the botanicals used in making it. It is the unusual gift I was looking for this particular person. I truly hope she likes it.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. very delicate
I bought this album for a gift, but once I saw it I almost kept it for myself! The cover is of great quality. I thought that the natural materials might fall apart, but it's assembled really well and it looks sturdy. It holds the pictures in it with strings, which is different. The album does not hold a lot of pictures. It's great for a coffee table album to share with visitors.
