India artisan families from the minority group called Kagzis have been in the paper making industry for over 80 years. The paper is made from recycled cotton fabric by hand without the aid of heavy machinery. Discarded cotton scraps are collected from India's textile industry.
Leather craft and tooling is an important traditional craft in a vegetarian region of Rajasthan, India. The leather is tanned using a vegetable tanning method, which protects the environment and tannery workers from toxic chemicals. Artisans then use water-based dyes or oils to color the leather. Hand tools are used to cut, stitch, and emboss the journal covers.
