Leather

Leathers are organic and fair-trade. They are a natural product from goats allowed to roam freely and so may show slight natural markings.
This is a normal feature of natural grain leather and is far preferable to using grain-corrected (machine-embossed)  leathers. 
Raw edges will likely show clip marks, discoloured areas or colourless areas, these are a normal result of the tanning process. 
The quality, beauty and functionality of your book is unaffected.
 
Colours
Colours may vary slightly from the colour shown on your screen due to monitor variations. 
Colours may vary slightly between dye lots; two books in the same colour may differ slightly.
If colour matching is crucial to you please get in touch: info@boundbyhand.co.uk 

Care & Handling 

It is best to store your leather book flat when not in use, such as on a desk, rather than standing on a bookshelf. Please protect your book from rain, liquids or oils, as they may mark the leather. Finally, please keep your book away from prolonged periods of direct sunlight, for example on a windowsill.
