These journals were part of our Uniques Collection and we are now bringing them back this weekend in our FALL COLORS so that you can make your own Custom Seasonal Journal.

With over 20 years of experience working with soft buttery leathers, we have created these Custom Italian Leather Lined Journals with up to 768 possible combinations and... that's not counting our limited edition Fall Colors.  
4 journal sizes, 8 leather color choices, PLUS the limited edition Fall Colors, each for the outside and inside leather lining combined with your choice of 3 differrent hand torn European fine art and Writing

  • FREE 3 Initial Personalization

These leather lined journals are the SAME PRICE as the non leather lined ones we sell only with more leather and time to thin the outside and inside leather pieces to the perfect thickness.

WHY thin down both pieces?  So it feels totally awesome in your hand and when writing in it.  Our journals open easily and lay flat from the first to the last page.

A journal that is too fat feels just as bad as one that is too thin.  With over 20 years experience and a $250 caliper designed just for this purpose, we get it right so you can have a journal that not only feels great to carry and look at, but also will last many generations so your heirs can reach into their past.
And the scent of leather you had while writing, they will also smell it as they read your words many many generations later.

Technically, skiving large pieces of leathers to the individual  perfect thickness of each to get that perfect hand feel when carrying your journal is no small task.
The average thickness of these soft leather lined custom journals is just over 1/8 inch, making them durable under almost any circumstance, even your dogs choppers.

They are leather lined, butter soft, durable enough to last for many generations and hand stitched by Joelle and Arthur with European fine art and writing papers. 
Each one will come with a FREE matching leather bookmark and, if you get the FREE 3 initial personalization, we will also put tit on the bookmark for an item that is truly as Unique as You.

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.

PAPER - OVERVIEW

We have 3 European, hand-torn papers.  Our Standard is Arches. The other 2 are our Premium papers from Germany.

Whether you write, draw or do both... using anything from a fountain pen to watercolor brushes, you will have the perfect paper.
Pick one paper for your entire journal OR pick a different paper for each refill.

Our Standard paper is Arches Text Wove.  The Frankfurt papers are our premium papers and while made more for fountain pens, work very well for water coloring too.

Our papers are all 120gsm in weight which give them the body you will love.
They will not feather or bleed with a fountain pen and are acid free.

And because you can write on both sides with any pen or pencil, it's like having twice the amount of usable pages you would have in a book with thinner paper.

We also hand tear all of our papers from larger parent sheets to give you the rough, authentic and artisanal look and feel.

PAPER - ARCHES TEXT WOVE (our standard)

Arches, from France, is the world's longest lasting paper (at least NASA thought so when it printed 250 artist proofs and launched them into outer space on the Shuttle Discovery in 1990). It is moderately sized, has a slight tooth and is one of the finest multi use artist papers and perfect for your ballpoint, rollerball, pencil or broad nib/stubbed fountain pen. It will not feather or bleed and you can write on both sides too. It will handle watercolor and gouache washes, copic markers, colored pencils, graphite and... you can scrub it some too. This paper is not only beautiful but it is the workhorse of papers for professional artists.
