This piece was lovingly created by

Zwartko (Fitzroy)

Zwartko was born out of necessity, and a very enlightening night of "paper-waste" crafting, after which there was no return. Crafting is a passion I have always pursued in many different forms, but Handmade Paper has captured my heart and hasn't let go. Rain, hail or shine, creating treasure from trash is where I want to be. Charlotte Rose creates 100% Handmade, Recycled Journals that are filled to the brim with love and detail, allowing you to capture and create your dreams wherever you may be! Every Journal features beautiful Handmade Paper Covers, Copic Binding & full customisation of not only additive free colours but personalised engraving for that unique touch. Anything you can imagine can be done!
