    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.

    We’re proud to feature Raven & Lily for their direct support of women entrepreneurs in India. Your purchase of this product directly impacts this artisan community through fair wages and business/skill training.
