Red Pen Travelers
Heart for India Border Crossings Leather Traveler's Notebook
I'm donating $10 from the sale of each handcrafted Heart For India traveler's notebook to help fund the humanitarian work of SheHopes.org, a community working to bring life, light, and hope to girls and women in southern India.
Our unique masking process creates an area of undyed leather in the shape of the country of India; select the color of the surrounding leather from a dozen beautiful dye options.
This design features a heart motif impressed into the leather, adding a dimensional aspect to your notebook cover. The heart will be stamped over Tamil Nadu by default; if you prefer it placed elsewhere, please specify in your order notes and I'll stamp the heart where it's most meaningful to you. The boundaries of several border regions remain in dispute; if you prefer an outline of India that does not include these areas, please specify clearly in your order notes.
Customize your traveler’s notebook for free by adding up to 4 initials stamped in the lower right corner of the front cover. Choose a matte or shimmer dye color; shimmer dye adds pearlescent sheen and lightens the final color slightly. Accessorize by selecting from 9 colors of 2mm elastic cord and metal eyelets in 4 finishes (or skip eyelets altogether). Note: eyelets are NOT available on Tiny notebooks.
- Conceal the elastic cords and create a book-like cover by adding a Premium Spine.
- Make your notebook two-toned by choosing contrasting interior and exterior colors. Or, invert the design for a completely different look.
- Get extra elastic for color variety or to piggyback additional inserts in your notebook cover.
