Velvet Ribbon Cotton Rag Sketchbook: Black

£39.00 GBP

| /

Inspired by Victorian mourning stationery, this Cotton Rag Sketchbook with black velvet ribbon is a slightly gothic version of the original 'Wabi Sabi' Cotton Rag Sketchbooks. Available with or without a cover, the sketchbook's 210gsm handmade pages are ideal for wet or dry media, embroidery and mixed media.

A practical yet tactile sketchbook or art journal

Bound in the French Linkstitch style in fine black French linen thread, the pages of this art journal lie flat on a surface, so it's a pleasure to work in. The book will also turn 360 degrees so you can display its pages standing up on a shelf in your studio, or for exhibition. Even if you add the optional cover, the sketchbook will stay open!

A lxurious yet versatile and ethical sketchbook

The 210gsm cotton rag paper is 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, so it's sustainable, ethical and good for our planet. Because they're handmade, the pages have traditional deckle edges which make for a sublimely natural appearance that invites engagement and innovative creativity. When not in use, the luxurious black velvet ribbon keeps your book securely closed.
