This fair trade journal is made from sustainable leather and cotton paper. The leather is made from natural deceased animals, tanned with vegetable methods, and dyed with water based dye or oils. The cotton is handmade using recycled cotton from the textile industry, allowing the pen to glide effortlessly across its pages. The words "Miles to go" are embossed on the bottom of the item.
Once the journal is complete, the insert can actually be removed from the cover and refilled to use again.
For the contemplative reflector.
