Handwoven Textile

The cover is made from handloom cotton. The cloth is made directly from raw-cotton in the villages close to cotton fields combining traditional Indian principles of cloth-making with modern small-scale technology. It avoids baling and un-bailing of cotton by heavy machinery and unnecessary transport. It has a beautiful texture, is soft and keeps its shape for ages. Handloom weaving is today the largest non-farm employer in the country, and mostly rural at that. Each region has its particular weave, and that's the beauty of handloom. 

Jute Paper Pages

The pages are made from recycled jute fibre and have not been treated with any colour or dye; they get the off-white shade naturally while the jute rags are being beaten into pulp to make the paper.

वन्दे मातरम् - Vande Mataram

Vande Mataram(Sanskrit: वन्दे मातरम् ) is a poem written by Bankim Chandra Chatterjee in the 1870s, which he included in his Bengali novel Anandamath. The poem was first sung by Rabindranath Tagore in the 1896 session of the Indian National Congress. The first two verses of the song were adopted as the national song of India in October 1937. An ode to the Motherland, it was written in Bengali script in the novel Anandmath. 

It played a vital role in the Indian independence movement. It became a popular marching song for political activism and the Indian freedom movement. The song and the novel containing it were banned by the colonial government, but workers and the general public defied the ban(with many being imprisoned repeatedly for singing it in public); the ban was overturned by the Indian government after the country gained independence from colonial rule in 1947.

On 24 January 1950, the Constituent Assembly of India adopted "Vande Mataram" as the national song. 


Please note: The colours used on the journal are not an exact match for the Tricolour colours. Each piece has been dyed(Tie N Dye) by hand in saffron, white and green and there will be variations in the shade as the process is handmade.

The pair of spectacles and thread spool are not a part of the product.
