Frequently Asked Questions about Simpson Leather Journals and Traveler's Notebooks:

What colors of leather do you offer?

The picture below is our current leather finish options.
  • Our bridle leathers have a matte finish and a rich, even tone. These are typically 7-8 oz thickness.
  • Our harness leathers have a more glossy sheen and a beautiful pull-up with some marbling. These are 5-6 oz leathers. However our BIG Composition cover in Oak Harness is a 9-10 oz thickness.
  • Natural Tan is our most unfinished leather. We add some wax and oil to our finishing process. Our Natural Tan is a 9-10 oz thickness.

Do you sell Bible Covers?

No, we do not sell Bible covers nor do we refinish Bibles--though this is truly a direction we would like to head someday.

Can I add a pen loop or custom closure?

You can add a pen loop, stitched only on the back, a pen loop with white border stitching around the border of the cover, or just border stitching with no pen loop. Look in our accessory section to add these items.
Custom closures are possible. Please reach out with your request.
