This handbound blank book has a cover featuring beautiful re-purposed packaging from Gulabi Barooti Tea. Part of a series of journals called "Bodega Books" which were inspired by a desire to re-use some of the beautiful and colorful product packaging I grew up observing when I went shopping at ethnic grocery stores with my father.
The pages are tea stained using a loose leaf black tea. As the paper dries after being immersed in the tea it crinkles and waves, creating some charming irregular spots and discoloration, with an overall warm tone. You’ll love the satisfying soft crinkles the pages make as you turn the pages. Let your imagination take you back in time as you write in this satisfying antique-style book! Perfect for use as a journal, scrapbook, or even prop.

I ordered this journal, as well as a marbled moon journal. The packaging was beautiful, and I also got an extra accordion journal - thank you Melike! I think I first saw the journal in an Instagram ad and knew I had to have it! I didn’t notice at first, but it brought my little Bengali heart so much joy to see the red Kolkata sticker. I’m both thrilled and nervous to fill this journal up - I almost want to save it because it’s so pretty and perfect!
