Original Leather Line

The Original Leather is a firm and robust full grain vegetable tanned leather. We use several different thicknesses for our products and will always choose the thickness that suits the use case best.

Our Notebook covers are 2.5 mm (6-6.5 Oz) thick on the outside while the pockets are made with the same first choice leather, but 1.5 mm (3.5-4 Oz) thick

Hand-dyed and finished with smooth burnished edges, to reveal it's natural beauty.

The Original Leathers can be engraved with an inscription and customized with any add-on from the customization section.

I love this notebook! The leather and the stitching is just perfect. It will house my MD Diary for next year and I cant’t wait. Thank you Monique for making me this beautiful piece of leather, and for being so custom friendly ang generous.

Must have for every active stationery lover

Real good material and excellent craftmanship give a gorgeous end product. Now I'm sure that my notebook and loose papers are well protected and safe.

Love it

My Folio Cover in the A5 size was made to fit the Hobonichi Cousin, but I used another A5 notebook in it and it fit just fine. The leather is thick and sturdy, yet doesn't feel heavy. It smells wonderful, like leather. It starts off a bit stiff and creaks when you bend it, but after a week or two of use the leather softens a little. The leather used to make the pockets are thinner so it doesn't add bulk to the cover at all. I got the insert elastics added even though I plan to use it with one notebook only. The elastics are supposed to be optional, but I can't figure out how the leather bookmark would work if you don't have the holes for the elastics. The string used for the bookmark is too long for my liking. I accidentally put the bookmark and the charms onto the leather and pressed down, which caused a small indentation in the leather. So, I would try keep the bookmark charms away from the leather. Overall I love this cover, the quality of the leather and the cover design is amazing.

Not what I expected

After anticipating the delivery of this notebook cover, I was disappointed when I opened the box. The first thing that jumped right out at me was the gold on the notebook. It was not applied very well. In fact, the gold applied to the door knocker is outside the embossing and quite sloppy. Also several areas of the stitching are a problem, especially down the whole length on the front. The holes for the stitching have been made or pulled in such a way that it has allowed the natural color of the leather to be seen next to the thread. This makes it look like there is a fine, light colored line all along the stitching. And I’m not sure why the the extra elastic included is blue instead of black. The little extras you send along are very nice and I do appreciate them. My name engraved on the leather tag is an especially nice touch.
