| /

A special edition of the popular Wabi Sabi Cotton Rag Sketchbooks, bound with  Olive or Forest Green velvet ribbons and the finest French linen thread. It's a practical sketchbook with a touch of luxurious tactility. The quality, handmade paper is suitable for dry and wet media, including watercolour, gouache, ink, pencil - or even embroidery stitching through the paper!

Exposed beauty in a lay-flat, easy to use sketchbook

This delightful Sketchbook is bound in the French Linkstitch style, and is left coverless to showcase the beauty of its binding and materials. Bound by hand with traditional bookbinding skills, the exposed spine binding allows the pages to lie flat on a surface for easy use. The book will also turn 360 degrees so you can display its pages standing up, say in your studio, or in an exhibition.

A lxurious yet versatile and ethical sketchbook

The cotton rag paper is 210gsm, acid-free and gelatine sized, so it has a nice weight and takes wet media really well. It's fairtrade and handmade from textile industry offcuts, meaning it's sustainable, ethical and good for the planet. Because they're handmade, the pages have traditional deckle edges which make for a delightfully ruffled appearance. When not in use, the beautiful velvet ribbon keeps your book securely closed (and the ribbon is secured to the book by the spine stitching, so you don't need to worry about it getting lost!).


Small A6 portrait approximately 15 x 10.5 cm / 6 x 4.25 inches, 64 pages

Available in the original version, or add a cover in heavier cotton rag paper to archive your sketchbook.

    I have several of these books mainly because they are just so beautiful and unique but also they are wonderful to work in, and the fact that there is now the option of velvet ribbons is the icing on the cake!
