It’s back to basics with the Jacinto & Lirio Persevere Vegan Leather Journal. A classic journal with a twist of nature and local craftsmanship, the Persevere Journal is a testament to the innovative skills and simple nature of the Filipino. Handmade from water hyacinth leather, this vegan leather journal is a refillable journal with side pockets. The blank white paper allows its user to make what he wants out of it, whether a list of reminders, a diary, or a sketchpad. Persevere allows its users to express themselves through their work or play, or even both.

VEGAN-LEATHER: The cover is made of water hyacinth plant leather, which is a good conversation starter! No animal was harmed in the process of manufacturing our products.
Paint on it using acrylic paint of watercolor after applying a primer, draw using permanent markers or have your name engraved for a more customized look.

ECO-FRIENDLY: These days, being environment-friendly is now a major consideration apart from being practical for the average consumer. Our brand uses sustainably harvested water hyacinths that are polluting bodies of water in different local communities.

WATER RESISTANT: Our vegan leather is waterproof! Makes accidental spillage over your refill cover a bit more bearable since it won’t soak into the material. Just wipe it off with fabric.

INNER POCKETS: The Persevere Leather Journal also has 2 front sleeve pockets to hold your cards, papers and other documents.

ELASTIC BAND SEAL: Because of the stretchable material, the seal adjusts to your journal’s contents, be it thick or thin.

BLANK JOURNAL: It provides you with 80 leaves of white paper giving you a lot of freedom and space to write, draw, even paint!

SOCIAL ENTERPRISE: Through the creation of well-designed, functional, and Philippine-inspired vegan leather-goods, Jacinto & Lirio aims to improve the lives of people from both ends of the spectrum—the water hyacinth communities who are empowered through meaningful work, and the people purchasing who are enriched by the eco-friendly products. We aim to work within a collaborative business model for the purpose stated in the mission- social impact in livelihood, environmental protection and product innovation

NOTE: The water hyacinth has natural black/brown marks as well as wrinkles. Sometimes you will see this, sometimes none. It’s randomly seen depending on the stalks of the water hyacinth.
