"Exquisite Gift"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This book is a treasure! Far more impressive than the photograph for the quality of care in every aspect of its construction. I got it as a gift for my partner as he tells wonderful stories of his childhood. Though he does not journal, I encouraged him to use this beautiful book to write those stories that they may be enjoyed by his children and perhaps grandchildren some day. I am an artist in the US, graduated from a well known art college. Freshman year, the Calligraphy class required that we create a book from scratch, including end papers, binding, cover etc. It took a month of serious effort and I am proud of my creation, but easily admit that this book far exceeds my own. It is simply beautiful.

"Very pretty natural leaf journals in great colors."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I really like the fact that this artisan uses so many natural materials, from rice straw paper to covers made of banana bark fiber. These two journals are decorated with kapu-kapu leaves and the veins of the leaves are very pretty. Of all his journals I think these are my favorites because I love the orange and yellow colors! Very pretty.

Best Uses

  • Give as gifts; buy lots of them to mix and match!

"Great Gift!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I bought this item as a birthday gift for a dear friend. The picture does not do justice to it as the blue covering is vibrant and the leaf pattern quite striking. Even the gift wrapping was a work of art, so much so that my friend took a picture of it before opening the present. Needless to say that she loved the gift! Compliments to the artisan!
