Awagami’s home of Tokushima is the birthplace of Japanese indigo where farmers have been cultivating it for centuries. The humble beauty of indigo was revived during the Japanese folk-crafts or ‘Mingei’ movement and Awagami proudly continues the tradition. This handmade accordion-fold book features a textured indigo paper cover that has been dip-dyed multiple times in indigo pigment to create its pattern. Inside you will find smooth heavyweight washi pages suitable for writing, drawing, collage, stamping, scrapbooking. Each hand-bound book is unique. Measures 4.7" x 7". 19 folded panels.
"This is one of my favorite sketchbooks to take while traveling. The cover is surprisingly durable, yet it's amazingly light and the perfect size to slip into the outer pocket of a backpack or carry-on bag. I love using the accordion style pages to let the story of a trip unfold naturally." - chosen by Margaret
