Where do the materials come from?

Journal paper is sourced from online paper vendors.

Some of our journals and collage materials are from vintage and used books. We research the books to the best of our ability to make sure they do not hold any significant historical or literary importance before repurposing them. We strive to breath new live into vintage items that have already been used to the full in their current form.

We source journal cover fabric from local quilt shops and fabric stores.

Journals are made with acid-free glue and products to aide in the longevity of your product.
