A beautiful chestnut brown, sustainable leather journal with embossed Tree of Life design. It has two leather flap fold overs with brass snap closures and 96 pages of unlined tree-free paper.
In Rajasthan, India, cows are sacred and honoured for their milk, labour and spirit. Revered, they are allowed to live well until they die of old age. After they die, their hides are treated naturally - without the use of harmful chemicals - and made into beautiful handcrafts like this journal.
The paper in these journals is also tree-free, made from discarded cotton scraps collected from the textile industry.
The perfect gift for a friend with an ethical bent.
The New Internationalist brings to life the people, the ideas and the action in the fight for global justice.
I can certainly commend the New Internationalist for quick postage & handling - I ordered it on the web and it arrived at my door within 2-3 days, awesome compared to the usual 1 month+ with Amazon!
What motivated the founders of the New Internationalist magazine was a high idealism; a real sense that we could change things; that if people knew the facts about what was going on, then they could actually have the wherewithal to campaign and try to make the world a better place.
Proud to help... read you cover to cover

A little about Asha Handicrafts: Asha Handicrafts provides the security of markets to small scale artisan workshops around India, like ANSA, the soapnut harvesters in Tamil Nadu.
New Internationalist Australia is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization, which means we have to stock a percentage of Fair Trade products, and also adhere to Fair Trade practices ourselves. Great for supporting producers rights, and also for our staff.
