Platinum Journal

$55.00

Product Description

This book is a tribute to the ageless wisdom and strength of all the silver/platinum haired people in this world.
It's inspiration came from Women's Day this past weekend and just a simple awareness of the often unforgotten wisdom, beauty and strength of all older women who walk this Earth.

Rarer and more expensive than gold, Platinum is a symbol of True Love, Purity, Rarity, Strength and it NEVER TARNISHES.
AND it reminds me of...
the absolute and undeniable beauty of older platinum haired ladies and silver haired men who have
walked this world with ageless wisdom and are examples of this symbolism of Platinum.

The SILVER thread...
running thru the knot represents a life filled with experiences and the wisdom gained from them.

Each multi-faceted off white JADE bead is:
individually hand-carved in Afghanistan.
It takes one person one month to carve a single string of 25 beads.
This represents the craft of our lives and it's different facets.
See closeup inset of the bead in the images.

INTENTION OF THIS JOURNAL:
This journal is a place to distill your experiences, record your wisdom and then for you and others to remember it's wealth.
The choice to not write is, by default, the choice to forget.
So use this book as your place to write your wisdom and strengths and Remember that, like Platinum, they are true, will never tarnish and will be a blessing to your future life and those who come after you.

This Journal comes as a Unit...  combined with FREE 3 initial personalization (normally $14.95) and a matching personalized leather bookmark (normally $9.95) and FREE Shipping.

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.

Our unique Solomon's Knot construction

The hand-tied Solomon's Knot makes this multi refillable journal possible.
It takes 32 individual knots to complete this binding.  go ahead and count them :)

The Solomon's Knot has been used across a number of cultures and historical eras and can be given a range of symbolic interpretations.
It represents immortality and eternity and, in Buddhism, the Endless Knot.
Because of the 2 entwined knots, it is sometimes interpreted as a Lover's Knot.
Because of religious connections, the knot is sometimes designated the all-faith symbol of faith, but, at the same time, it appears in many places as a valued secular symbol of prestige, importance and beauty.

The Solomon's Knot is cool, organic, Earthy and speaks to your soul more than something metal or elastic could ever do.

Here's the other thing about our unique Solomon's Knot construction...
It doesn't wear out like elastic.
It won't bend or break like metal clips.
It's not magnetic which might mess up your electronics.

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.
