Gossamer Grey: Lined Midi Journal
This Belle Époque cover showcases a reproduction of an exquisite example of luxurious French silk.
This 20th-century design has a timeless look of haute couture elegance while at the same time suggesting the possibilities afforded designers with the advent of new manufacturing techniques in the fashion industry. In the early 1900s, the textile industry underwent a revolution as synthetic fibers were introduced.

Advancements in the textile industry made beautiful fabrics like this accessible to a wider range of people than ever before.
