Story Behind the Art
These writing journals are handmade out of 100 waru and lotus leaves, banana bark, bamboo paper, bean pod shells and twigs. They are sprayed with a wax type material so the colors will last, stay bright, and the natural materials will last forever. There are many artisans for this product as well as many other Indonesian products. For these wonderful journals, a small village in a remote area in Bali, Indonesia handmake these journals and sell them to us (importer) so that the money that is made helps support their living, family, and expenses. The village depends on us (importers and consumers) to purchase these to help them survive, be able to help raise their children and hope that they have better lives. The area is very poor but the people 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.

A beautifully handcrafted original! We own over 30 notebooks and none compare to this one - it's hand made but professional looking and functional. The cover binding is made to fold back so you can write on the pages far into the crease of the book. Love the twine and twig binding - beautiful, artistic, and, once again, functional. You can not help but remember the whole notebook comes from trees - since all the trees components are on the front cover. Recommended for artists, nature lovers, notebook lovers, writers, crafters, etc.!
A lovely journal, even better than it looks in the picture. A great "exchange" gift for the holidays or the perfect addtion to an oriental-themed gift basket which is what I am using it for, along with some other items from Overstock!
I shipped this to my best friend...always makes me nervous sending something I haven't really seen, but she LOVED it! She says it is beautiful and really well made and that lotus leaves are supposed to bring good luck and happiness. I have never yet been disappointed shopping at Overstock.com Thanks again, Overstock!
I bought this for myself because I wanted to have a journal to record some changes I was making in my attitude to life. It is the perfect vessel for such musings. I purchased a similar one for my sister who is joining me on this journey of personal discovery. Besides all this self-help mumbo jumbo I just bored you with, the bottom line is that it is beautiful!
