either write something worth reading, or do something worth writing
These journals are special to me. As an english teacher and someone who loves to write, I decided to make these pretty journals that are small enough to fit into your pocket or purse. They have been hand-stitched using blank paper and a kraft cover that has been finished with lokta and chiyogami paper.
Both papers have a long history: Japanese Chiyogami paper is handmade, screen-printed and inspired by colourful and beautiful silk kimono patterns. Lokta is a renewable forest product harvested from the diverse himalayan ecosystem. In the 1980s, UNICEF launched a project to revive Nepal's indigenous paper making process. I've sourced the papers from one of my favourite local shops in Toronto, The Paper Place.
