First off... OUR LEATHER

Our leather comes from a 6th generation tannery in the Italian Alps just outside of Venice, Italy.
The Heavier Rustic Brown and Black are 2.2mm thick.  The Flight Jacket is 1.5mm thick.  All of them are as one customer said, "...to die for. Not to soft, not to stiff, not to thick not to thin, just perfect."  You will not find this leather anywhere else.  The patina developed over time will not only enrich it's look and make you the envy of others but it will draw you in and inspire you as it moves from one refill to the next over time.  This is a leather that you will not want to let go of.

There is nothing you need to do our leathers to care for them. Use them vigorously and without mercy.  Scratch it and it will heal when rubbed.
That is one of the beauties of our leather... elegant, soft and luscious yet nearly bombproof.  There is no need to pamper it.  Just use it and know it is developing an inner beauty as you do.

Unbranded English cow are the hides we use for our leather.  They are all a byproduct of the meat eating industry.  It is the responsible use of available resources.
There is simply nothing better in the world than Italian tanned leather using English cow. We worked with our Italian tannery for 2 years to develop our leather and it is unavailable anywhere else except at Frye Boots. They loved our leather so much that they started using it to make their boots.  That should tell you something about it's durability.

THE PEN LOOP

The perfect Pen Loop for your fountain pen.

We are writers just like you and yes, we use inexpensive pens like the G-2. But we also use Pelikan and TWSBI and Visconti and....
My point is that the perfect cover requires the perfect loop.
Ours come in 3 sizes to start. The sizes below are your pens diameter. We make them a tad larger to avoid a super tight fit.
1/2 inch - approx size of a Pilot G-2
5/8 inch - pictured with Visconti Van Gogh (not included). It will also snuggly hold a Visconti Ink Pot.
3/4 inch - I don't have a pen this fat but I know they are out there :)

If your pen is larger then tell us it's diameter, at the widest point, in the comments box when you check out. We'll make your perfect size for no additional cost.

The pen loop is set exactly 2.5 inches from the top of the cover and is 4 inches long.
We make your pen loop longer than other companies might in order to better protect the investment you have made in your pen.
That's the same reason we integrate the pen loop inside of the cover... so it is not exposed and hanging out.

Don't want a pen loop?
No Problem.  Just mention it in the comments box when checking out and we'll leave it off.
Doing that will reduce the overall width by about 1/2 inch.

Btw... the Notebook and Pen pictured are NOT included.
