Spes (or Hope) is a feeling of expectation or a desire for something to happen. It is about aspirations, goals and dreams. They can be very simple but incredibly meaningful and fulfilling. Jacinto & Lirio’s Spes is an executive journal that accompanies you in the pursuit of your life’s desires. Take notes during meetings, write down your thoughts while traveling, start a novel, try a new art medium –you can do anything! You only need to put a little faith in yourself. Spes Traveler’s Journal and Passport Holder is a handmade vegan leather refillable journal cover made from water hyacinth vegan leather. It also comes in a mini size that is ideal for passports. The pages are suitable for all mediums of writing, including calligraphy and watercolor.
JOURNAL OR PASSPORT HOLDER: A journal or passport holder protects the notebook or passport from normal wear and tear. A passport holder helps you quickly identify the passport in your luggage or bag.
INNER POCKETS: You can store your boarding pass, cards, paper bills or other documents in the inner pockets.
PORTABLE W10.16 x L15.24 cm SIZE: The handy size would easily fit your coat pocket, shoulder bag or purse. It’s also made for carrying around busy airports, train stations, bus terminals or ports.
REFILLABLE: Reuse this sleeve to reduce your carbon footprint. Whether you prefer blank, ruled, dotted or planners, you can easily replace the notebook inside to whatever your print preference is. Its refillable feature allows it to be a stylish journal and passport holder-in-one.
BLANK NOTEBOOK: The notebook holds 70 leaves of blank crisp cream paper, ready to be filled with your creative bursts of ideas!
ELASTIC BAND PEN HOLDER: No matter what size, your pen will be securely fastened. A penholder on the side makes you ever ready whenever you need to sign that all important travel paper or write down that number.
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.
CUSTOMIZABLE: Paint on the water hyacinth portions using acrylic paint of watercolor after applying a primer, draw using permanent markers or have your name engraved or printed for a more customized look.
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.
