Our new Indigo 100% Handmade Cotton Rag Paper is now available in a range of individually hand produced sketchbooks, including an unusual ‘Concertina’ format, a ‘Panorama’ edition and a standard A6 Landscape Casebound Hardback.
The Concertina sketchbook is not bound on either side, and instead opens out like an accordion, enabling you to modify your canvas size, all the way from the folded A5 or A6 portrait format to panoramas, landscapes, and even whole storyboards! Also catering for watercolour landscape aficionados is our extended landscape Panorama casebound book (with a wide dimension of 270 x 148.5mm) together with a fat pocket sized A6 landscape casebound book. All varieties of these handmade sketchbooks feature an elastic strap to keep your artwork secure.
Perfect for watercolour paint, but also accommodating all dry and soft media, each sketchbook is individually handmade with natural fully deckled edge paper. Slight variations in paper size, surface and production (overall the paper is a mid-rough texture and a heavyweight 250gsm) are a feature of these traditionally hand produced books by local artisans in Northern India. Each book is covered with a handmade linen textured paper naturally indigo dyed.
Create beautiful watercolour artworks with the Artway Indigo Handmade sketchbooks - the Concertina edition allows the sketchbook to be extended into a single sheet of paper almost 3 metres in length. The Panorama edition is a wide cinematic landscape sketchbook - we also supply a pocket sized A6 portrait casebound version.

Please Note - These papers are traditionally sized with a weak gelatine solution (1%). This is an animal derivative and sadly not vegan friendly. We are however currently working on this with local craftspeople towards future resolution
