A 100% handmade leather journal cover.

Midori-style, Traveler's Notebook system. Perfect for your bullet journals.

This leather is "full grain". It's 6 to 7 oz (2.4 to 2.8 mm) thick to be exact! Full grain leather is much BETTER than the top grain and genuine or bonded leather. Full grain is the most expensive and durable cut you can buy. It's the only cut that contains unique markings and scars, making it highly sought after. Full grain fibers run more vertical, resulting in superior strength and perhaps will hold up for a 100 years of use if properly maintained.

We only use leather from North American cattle that has been carefully vegetable tanned right here in the USA. The tanning process includes a hot stuffing with waxes and oils, making it smooth, soft and beautiful.

This is durable leather with rich patinas that only betters with age.

We hand cut the leather from large hides. Each piece is unique with different markings.
Then, you'll find that we do much more:

- We hand cut the covers and for our upgraded varieties, pockets and pen loops as well.
- We carefully punch the holes for the binding.
- We trim and burnish the edges by hand, compressing and binding the leather fibers.
- We apply a quality edge finish that gives long lasting protection and a smooth feel.
- We hand sew the strong elastic cord and properly tension it.
- We engrave your name or logo on the front cover (Leave us a note when you order).
- We zero-waste package your journal in a cotton drawsting bag and a corrugated cardboard box.

Our Simpson Leather Journals are Journals for life. They make the perfect gift and serve as an excellent tool to help make your life flow. Thank you!
