A very sweet and unusual notebook wrap/cover made using recycled vintage linens and cottons. It is made to have the appearance of having been loved and cherished for many years and the type of treasured item that might have been passed through the generations. The naive stitching and repaired and discoloured look is intentional to give this impression. Some of the linens and textiles have been tea dyed to give them more of an aged grungy look, this wrap has been dyed a soft blush and pale salmon pink dip dye. There are intentionally raw edges and frayed textiles to enhance the worn look.
The front of the wrap is embellished with printed seedhead and embellished with antique lace. It has a tiny hand stitched heart made from a vintage eiderdown fabric pinned to the front.
Inside there is a small notepad and pencils and other decorative vintage ephemera such as a playing cards and postage stamps. There's plenty of room to add your own favourite items and treasures. It ties together with a hand painted sari silk ribbon. It would look beautiful on a dressing table and is the nice size to carry with you for notes on the go.
It measures approx 26cm (to the longest piece of lace) by 11.5cm closed and 26cm by 38cm open.
It would make a beautiful and unusual gift for a friend or relative or lover of vintage textiles and handmade work.

*shipping/postage fees....I am trying to perfect this part of the process to offer you the best deal but to also cover the cost of the order should items go astray in the postal system. Due to a substantial increase in shipping fees particularly to the United States as USPS have increased their prices I have unfortunately had to increase shipping fees as am unable to absorb these costs. Please don't hesitate to get in touch should you have any questions about this before buying, thank you.
