“A new beauty had been revealed in the marks of age and from the passing of time…”
We’re passionate about travel journals at Kouamo and worked closely with the talented Novella Bookbinding to create this perfect design - bound and hand-stitched in London using traditional tools and techniques.
The sotfback fabric-bound cover encases both lined and crisp white Italian paper - ideal for sketches and memoirs. There are sleeves and pockets for tickets, cards and keepsakes as well as envelopes and pen. Each Travel Journal is wrapped with a co-ordinated double stretch spaghetti strap and is finished with luxurious touches such as brass corners and foiled lettering.
Created with consideration to the environment, we cover each journal with an exquisite upcycled Kouamo fabric off-cut, which means that no two are exactly the same. This design is inspired by our travels in Havana where we surrounded with the subtle beauty of faded colours and worn surfaces.
