Velvet Ribbon Cotton Rag Sketchbook: Old Gold

£39.00 GBP

| /

A sumptuous version of the popular Wabi Sabi Cotton Rag Sketchbooks, this time bound with Old Gold velvet ribbon and the finest French linen thread. It's a great gift for artists who like tactile, handmade materials. The 210gsm paper is suitable for dry and wet media, including watercolour, gouache, ink, pencil, and even embroidery.

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

This practical and versatile 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 on a shelf in your studio, or in an exhibition.

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 delightfully ruffled appearance that invites engagement and innovative creativity. When not in use, the luxurious velvet ribbon keeps your book securely closed (and the ribbon is held safe by the spine stitching).
