Luxurious versions of the popular Wabi Sabi Cotton Rag Sketchbooks, this time bound with velvet ribbons in Russet (a warm reddish-brown) or festive Red. The 210gsm handmade paper is suitable for dry and wet media, including watercolour, gouache, ink, pencil and even embroidery! Choose the original exposed version, or add a cover for archiving.

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

This practical 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, 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 held safe by the spine stitching).
