Top Grain Leather

Leather notebook covers you will treasure for years to come.

All leather covers are made from real top grain leather. Unlike other brands, there is no need to condition the covers, as the leather doesn’t dry out. They are easy to keep clean and will retain their full colour.

These leather covers are refillable & reusable! They suit both soft or hard cover books and are adaptable to traveler notebooks or bullet journal inserts. Each cover is handmade & hand-stitched, ensuring you receive only top quality leather covers for your notebook, journal, sketchbook, organiser or planner.
