You have your choice of whiskey or butter colored free-range deerskin lacing. You can also choose one of four beautifully textured handmade paper accents (or plain if you prefer). Please see below for more on paper options and the eco-friendly leathers I use.
These are bound with a traditional ''long-stitch'' bookbinding technique. Each one is unique with distinctive grain patterning in this very rich in character top grain bison. The Paso del Borracho (or ''Drunkard's Stitch'') lacing is accented with beaded fringe. The beads include brass, glass, copper and bone that I hand-dye to get a complimentary range of earthy hues. I use a series of grinders to carve the antler closures which are one of a kind by mother nature's design. There is a pen holder in the fold of the front flap.
Each journal has 150 (300 front/back) pages of 24 lb smooth writing paper that is ACID FREE and 100% post consumer recycled (yes!). This journal also has the option of deckled edges for and additional $35.
And once you've filled it with all your special thoughts and memories, it can be rebound for a charge of $50 plain or $75 with handmade paper accents (paper choices will vary with time).
