oldworld.png

Welcome to the world of Phasha Leather Journals! Each journal is beautifully handcrafted using old-world techniques in India, and in a fair-trade environment by skilled artisans. There will be variations from one item to the next. Real leather can have natural characteristics like discoloration, wrinkles, or stretch marks, adding to the beauty of each unique piece. You'll love the feel of the thick natural white paper (between 100-125 GSM), made from 100% treeless and acid-free recycled cotton. The paper is hand stitched into the binding of each book, giving an 'old world' style look to the leather journal. Expect to receive a generous 105-110 sheets (210-220 pages) - more than most journals on the market!  Many journals feature a leather strap which is tied to the inside of the spine and wraps around to secure the book when it is closed.  Some even feature semi prescious stones on the cover including Jasper, Labradorite, Tiger-Eye, and Lapis Lazuli.
Paper refill kits are also available with instructions so your journal can be easily rebound making it last for years to come.

On the search for a unique gift idea? Consider an old-world style Phasha leather journal. Pronounced 'fasha' - with a small 'a' sound, the name is derived from a blend of its original Canadian founder's two names - Phil and Natasha. Phasha leather journals are made to resemble those dating back to the old-world 16th century, and are beautifully handcrafted by skilled artisans using the same techniques handed down from generation to generation. Since its inception in 2005, the company has significantly boosted the economy in the small town in India where their leather products are created. They've succeeded in doing this largly in part by paying fair-trade wages to their dedicated and talented artisans, and giving back financially to the community through programs and initiatives.  

There will be variations from one item to the next, as real leather includes inheritent natural characteristics like discoloration, wrinkles, or stretch marks, adding to the beauty and uniqueness of each piece.

Writing in a leather journal is the perfect way to archive your life's adventures and memories.
