35.00

Bundled Curio is a collection of one-of-a-kind, unbound journals made with loose leaves of watercolour paper wrapped up in vintage textiles and reclaimed leather. Use them to fill up with miniature paintings, calligraphy, as a herbarium for your pressed botanical specimens, writing words of wisdom or poetry.

This one bundle has a remnant of indigo Ajrak, the sacred cloth from Sindh, Pakistan. The landscape heavyweight paper has paint sprinkled edges in blue and gold, the sheets are kept together in an outer cover lined with vintage screen printed wallpaper, all tied up with a leather strap and woollen tassel from a antique camel sack. The stitching is neatened off with a tiny hand embroidered flower detail.
