NEW: Simple Wrap Journals

Wrap Leather Journal / Sketchbook

These new Simple Wrap Journals are like a grown-up version of the Miniature Journals; but a lot more earthy, even a little rustic. Here's their story...

I get a lot of bespoke orders for large books - usually Memory Books & Wedding Guest Books - that use calfskin, rather than goatskin (the skins are so much larger so they can accommodate A4 sized books). And there are lots of oddly shaped pieces left over which I can never bring myself to throw away; it would be such a waste of resources.

Forest Green Wrap Leather Journal

I've been wanting to introduce a budget-friendly, mid-size range for a while - something that's big enough to be useful on a daily basis, at a price you don't really have to mull over too much.

So here they are: Simple Wrap Journals bound in Mustard, Oxblood, Chocolate, Navy, Putty, Black, Forest Green and Tan calfskin leather. I'll also be introducing Crimson and Duck Egg soon. They have 60 pages of cartridge paper for writing and sketches.

I hope you like them!

Hi Vivienne,

I’m glad you think so; I wanted to make something for those times when we want to treat ourselves to something useful and lovely but have a very specific budget!

They look amazing and a good price too; might be indulging some time, I hope.
