✔️100% USA-MADE
All of our leather is USA tanned leather. And all of our journals are made in Idaho, USA.

This handcrafted leather journal features beautiful stitches with exposed page edges on the spine. The book lies completely flat and makes an excellent sketch or watercolor book. The outcome is timeless sophistication with a beautiful, vintage feel. All of my books and journals are made to last a lifetime (at least!) And the leather only gets better with time.

SEWN BOUND - This journal is hand-bound using a historical bookbinding technique of sewing the pages into the spine, which gives a lovely old-world look and feel. This binding method is durable and permanent.
Refillable bound journals are also available in both the Ready-To-Ship and Customizable sections.

•We use an old-fashioned style of personalizing your leather, called Embossing. Heat is pressed into your journal cover, leaving a gorgeous and rustic looking imprint that is permanent.

•See examples of embossing throughout the listing photos on any listing.

•If you select the option of personalized embossing from the drop-down menu, that will include up to 15 characters of embossing. Please enter your personalization in the Personalization Box.

•If you would like additional characters, you may add the listing entitled "Additional Embossing" to your order; located in the MORE CUSTOMIZATIONS section.

•Alpha-numeric font is all caps, Times Roman.
Special characters available include: . ' , # @ ? ! " $ % & * : > < ; / \ •Names, initials, etc, typically go in the lower right corner by default, unless your specific journal design and personalization length warrant a different location. If you have a specific location you would like your embossing to go, you must message me or indicate the desired location in the order notes. If specific instructions are not left by you, formatting and location discretion will be left up to myself, and determined by what is most appropriate given your specific journal design and personalization. ================== SIZES AVAILABLE: ================== Sizes are all in inches. 4x6 5x7 6x9 8x10 9x12 ================== PAPER AVAILABLE: ================== You can choose to fill your handcrafted journal with various types of paper.

Please see the last photo in each listing to see an example of a journal in each leather; and also in the listings photos throughout the whole shop. After working with hundreds of various hides and types of leathers, these are the leathers that we weren't able to say goodbye to. Due to the nature of the authentic leather hides, there will always be variation and uniqueness from one journal to the next. Each hide will have some degree of "pull-up," which refers to color variation where the leather is creased or bent; which gives a very rustic or distressed look. Pull-up creases go away with time or with rubbing the leather by hand. Following are descriptions of our leather varieties: RUSSET - A golden medium brown leather with some color variation between lighter browns, golden, and sometimes reddish tones. Beautiful light golden tan pull-up when leather is creased. BISON - A medium-dark brown with gorgeous tan pull-up marks where the leather is creased. MAHOGANY - A semi-glossy solid burgundy-brown leather, without very much color variation or pull-up. Some might consider this our least rustic or distressed looking leather, yet it does still have some color variation and a slight rustic look. DRIFTWOOD - This leather has a ton of color variation between lighter tan to medium brown to darker brown areas, all along the spectrum of sandy and woodsy brown color tones. Some hides will be more covered in the darker brown, but color range and variation is similar. These hides have a very pronounced pull-up effect: you will notice very pronounced color variation in areas that are creased. ====== NOTE: ====== Elastic binding cord color is chosen based on what will accentuate the color of your leather, but if you prefer light or dark, please message me. ================================================= FREE SHIPPING on all domestic orders $35 and up! ================================================= =============================================================== To see all of my books, journals, and refills, browse my shop here: --------------->
