My handmade paper is created from waste gathered from my home and office; pulling sheets with a mould and deckle as per traditional paper making practice.

The coloured options have all been created using carefully sorted paper scraps; with the prevailing colour blended and the ink leaching out to make a colour that is completely free of additives!

Handmade Paper is clean cut, textured on one side and flat pressed on the other and is suitable for writing, stamping, drawing, acrylic painting but is *NOT recommended for any type of watercolour.

Paper will vary in thickness and consistency from sheet to sheet. These sheets can have slightly raised paper bits or small imperfections, this is the beauty of Handmade Paper!

All Journals are created with love and passion in Melbourne, Australia.

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!
