Rag and Bone Bindery: Beautiful and Environmentally-Friendly Handcrafted Albums

I can’t think of a parent who doesn’t love receiving a beautiful photo album. These albums from Rag & Bone Bindery are sure to make parents life-long devotees of the brand.

Each book is hand-cut, hand-bound and hand-tied right here in the USA (Rhode Island to be exact). The environmentally-friendly books are also entirely green — the paper and glue are acid-free and the covers are made out of cotton (reducing waste).

Because they are hand-crafted, each album can be custom-designed as well. So if you don’t like one of the many prints there are to choose from (seems impossible, but maybe you prefer a solid color or something like that) you can request the change and Rag & Bone Bindery will happily customize your order for you.

Though there are a number of products to choose from, my favorite from the line is probably Baby’s First Book, a memory book for baby’s first year. The ribbon-bound book contains 24 fill-in pages such as “How Mom and Dad met” and “How we picked your name.” It also includes a vellum envelope to keep mementos from that special first year.

I also loved the Growth Charts which would make an awesome gift alongside a matching album, like the accordion books.

Rag & Bone Bindery also offers a full selection of non-baby-related books like Day Planners and Journals. They even offer Digital Albums for those of you who are more computer savvy.
