These Journals are made from genuine leather, using handcrafting passed down from previous generations.
The Journal paper is made from 100% recycled cotton, and is acid-free. DO NOT USE LIQUID INKS ON THIS PAPER. IT WILL BLEED AND SMUDGE! You can use pencils of any kind, gel pens, crayons, biros etc, and possibly oil paints.
Styles available now include a large Art Folio for artistic creativity, and medium notebooks for everyday recording. You will find the smaller version perfect for travel journalling, being small enough to pack and carry but having at least 100 double sided pages for memories. Finer artistic detail includes Cabuchons and whipstitched edging with leather cord and clasp closures on some. Others have a thin leather binding cord closure. More designs and styles will be arriving soon.
A good leather dressing is ideal for looking after your new journal and keeping it in the best condition for life. Please remember that any handmade object is unique in its own way, and that minor ‘imperfections’ may exist.
Explore Handmade Notebooks Made with Time-Tested Techniques
For the writer or the artist, few items are as valued and treasured as handmade notebooks. Having a beautiful cover to house your thoughts can be an inspiration in its own right, and can inspire you whether you’re drawing, creating stories, or journaling. When you can find a resource for a quality handmade leather diary, you can trust that the product will last for a long time too.
The notebooks you can buy in bulk might be inexpensive, but time takes its toll on them quickly. How many paper-bound notebooks do you have that have fallen apart over time? At Art Shades Online, we believe strongly in a “buy it for life” philosophy, and we’ve sourced beautiful notebooks to suit even the most discerning writer.
