Choose from three ranges of leather, all of a superlative quality and with distinctive characteristics.
This leather is warm to the touch and slightly glossy. Tanned only with natural vegetable materials, it is hand-polished to reveal the beauty of the natural grain goatskin. Best for journals which will be handled and kept on a desk, less suitable for travel journals unless you don't mind a few marks along the road (some like the lived in look!).
Colours from left to right:
Top row: Blue 11, Blue 12, Blue 13, Blue 14, Green 15, Green 16, Green 17, Beige 18
Second row: Orange 19, Scarlet 20, Crimson 21, Terracotta 22, Brown 23, Brown 24, Maroon 25
Third row: Tan 26, Green 27, Black 28, Purple 29, Yellow 30, Grey 31
Bottom row: Chocolate 32, Biscuit 33, Pink 34, Yellow 35, Brown 36
Similar to the organic goatskin, but with a slightly glazed finish which offers extra protection.
This leather offers a more rugged, natural feel with a pronounced grain and napped reverse and again is finished for extra protection. Colours from left to right:
Please note that the appearance of colours varies between screens and also between dye lots as the leathers are a natural product.
