Recycled cotton turned into paper with a purpose. These beautiful designs catch the eye and inspire one to keep a journal or practice creativity. The inside is blank to provide room for you to handwrite stories, draw, or doodle. These gorgeous journals from the India Collection empower marginalized women in Northern India.
Story behind the product: The journals are made by women artisans at the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains in Northern India. The women transform cotton and paper once discarded and seen as waste into something purposeful and beautiful. Military tents, denim jeans, newspapers, and cotton rags now find new purpose as the women create paper products from these recycled remnants.
How does it benefit at-risk women?
The artisan women find new meaning through their work. They were once marginalized because of their gender and poverty and now find passion in their art and hope for their future.
