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.

What is Worldstock?

    Verified Purchase

    I realized I needed to send a long distance friend a gift for her birthday quickly and I came across this journal. It had great reviews so I ordered it and had it sent right to her. She not only got it in time but she raved about how beautiful and well made it was. It made me go back and order another one for myself!

    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!
