Wearing a dark brown reclaimed leather coat, I’m a unique hand bound journal for your thoughts. A closer inspection will reveal intricate patterns around my coat which have been embossed by hand.

Embellished on my cover flap is a vintage Turkoman button measuring 1 inch wide, which has been stitched into my coat with linen thread.

Open me up, and discover I begin & end with beautiful decorative paper made in Italy featuring dragonflies, which has been hand aged to fit my overall persona. In between, I’m filled with 100 sheets (200 pages counting both sides) of 140gsm drawing & sketching paper made in Germany by Hahnemühle. Not only is this smooth paper ideal for ink & dry media, but it is suitable for all drawing techniques, including pencil, charcoal & pen. It will tolerate light washes without bleeding & has good eraser resistance.

Each of my sumptuous pages have been individually hand-torn, richly tea-stained & pressed before being stitched directly into my coat with dark brown Irish linen thread. This style of long-stitch binding allows me to lay flat when in use. Along my spine, you’ll also find I have five sets of blue stitched lines which sport a unique design & beautiful contrast to my coat.

On each of my rustic pages, you’ll find an array of vintage ink stamps with a ‘wings’ theme to surprise you along your journaling journey. You’ll find a mix of butterflies & dragonflies on the corners of most pages, so you can remember to let your thoughts run free! In addition to this, you’ll also discover a few little authentic vintage mini glassine envelopes, which have been adorned with little snippets of butterfly-themed paper, for you to add what you will.

Due to the spontaneous nature of tea-staining, no two pages are alike.

When you’re not using me, I’ll protect your creations with my double wrap leather tie, which simply secures on my back with a mix of brown & red wooden beads.

Measuring 5 ¾ x 4 ¼ inches with a 1 ¾ inch-thick spine, I’m a unique handcrafted journal just perfect for that writer after something a little different.
