This one-of-a-kind hand-embroidered leather journal is 7.5 x 5.5 inches in size and has 240 pages counting both sides. It is made of real cowhide leather in dark brown and canvas fabric we hand-embroidered with our own original Koh-I-Noor butterfly design using high quality floss thread. The embroidered fabric has a leather backing to protect the stitches.
The Koh-I-Noor butterfly or Amathuxidia amythaon is found in many parts of Asia, including the Philippines (specifically in Leyte, Samar, Negros and parts of Mindanao). From the book, "A First Look at Philippine Butterflies" by Maria Elena Paterno: "The Koh-I-Noor butterfly is attracted to rotting fruit. It is most active toward the end of the day. It will fly only when it is disturbed, and even then it will not fly very far. Male butterflies of this species give off a sweet odor."
This journal’s leather spine was hand-punched, then hand-sewn with strong thread using traditional long stitch binding. The paper is 85 gsm, acid-free blank, ivory-colored sheets made of pure ECF (elemental chlorine free) ecological pulp that is versatile and can take fountain pen ink and light watercolor.
This journal is perfect for special occasions such as for weddings and anniversaries or for gift giving.
