The very first do-it-yourself Peg and Awl product! In the spirit of handmade wares and near-forgotten craft, our bookbinding kit not only offers a journal to fill with words and scribblings, but also teaches the art of hand-bound bookbinding.

The style of this book was influenced by my love of Anselm Kiefer and his book Transition from Cool to Warm, a book I picked up in Brussels one fine evening many years ago. It includes beautiful uncovered books that, in addition to housing extraordinary paintings, also show – with dirt and bendy corners – all of the love and travels his books endured.

Understanding the sewing process of bookbinding is the first step in making a sound book.

Kit includes:
- 1 length of thread
- 1 bookbinder’s needle
- 2 linen tapes
- 1 instruction booklet
- 1 sheet of illustrated steps
- Hand-torn, line-free Strathmore drawing paper

Glue is not included. Wheat paste is easily created by combining one part flour to four parts of hot water. Bleached flour works best.

Made in the USA

Frequently asked questions about PegandAwl

We are a husband and wife with a boy called Søren and a boy called Silas. We live and work in Philadelphia, Penna. Our work is made from olde things, treasures found and recovered from misfortune and neglect, relics of the unusual, the confused and the macabre, cut and pulled and built into wearable curiosities, inscribable keepsakes and useable, long-lasting treasures. We used to make them for ourselves and now we make them for everyone.
We guarantee our products to be free of defects in the materials or craftsmanship. We will be happy to replace any defective products. Wear from normal usage is not included in this guarantee. We believe firmly in creating enduring products whose lifespan can be lengthened by repair. Many of the materials in our products have already seen at least one lifetime of use, and have accumulated stories which are now proudly displayed in the blemishes on our objects. Each further crack, dent, &c. accumulated throughout each object’s new life – and the patches applied thereto – are further stories to proudly display. To contact us about repairs, please send us a message.
We do our best to maintain an inventory of each object. However, we hand-make all of our products in our Philadelphia workshoppe. If your product is not in stock when you order, it may take up to 10 days to ship – we have to make it! Orders shipped to the contiguous U.S. typically take 2 days to a week arrive.

If you would like to expedite your order please send us a message before placing your order. Since our products are made by hand, we would need to verify that we have your item in stock in order to ensure it will arrive in time.
Making size or style alterations to bags is a very complicated process and we do not offer this service.
Fabric
We use 15 oz. waxed duck canvas (19 oz. with wax) for most of our bags. Waxed canvas originated in the sailing industry in Scotland in the 1920s and became widely used because of its waterproofing abilities and superb durability.

Wood
Our wood products are made from wither reclaimed wood from old-growth trees, or new wood sourced from sustainable forests.

Leather
The bits of leather that cover our books are gathered willy-nilly from farms, flea markets and shoppes across the world. Leather straps and handles on our bags are WWII-era military-issue gun slings ranging from well-worn to deadstock.

Metal
We use only sterling silver and 14K gold. Our bronze is an alloy that we have matched closely to the color of gold.
The dimensions of all of our bags are listed at the bottom of each bag’s Etsy page.
You can order a longer strap by searching in our Etsy shoppe and adding the Longer Leather Strap for Tote, Finch or Hunter item to your order.

If you would like additional holes in your strap, please include the number and placement in your order notes.
Bags
Waxed canvas like leather does not require full cleaning and should not be machine washed, machine dried, or dry cleaned. If necessary, spot clean your waxed canvas with cold water using a sponge or gentle brush. Store in a dry place to prevent mold and mildew. Waxed canvas will better with age, but will need to be re-waxed in time. We recommend using Martexin Wax.

Kitchen Objects
Our kitchen objects are finished with Bartram Wood Balm, a natural balm that restores and preserves wood. We recommend that kitchen objects be refinished with Bartram Wood Balm when they start to get dull and look worn. Hand wash kitchen objects in hot water to clean. Do not let stand in water. Bartram Wood Balm is available for purchase in our Etsy shoppe.
Bags can be ordered with a leather monogram by searching for “Custom Monogramming for Waxed Canvas” in our Etsy shoppe and adding that listing to your order.

Most wood products can be personalized with engraving. Search for the “Add Custom Engraving” listing in our shoppe and add it to your order.

The best way to find your ring size is to go to a physical jewelry store and get measured. You can also search online for a ring sizing guide. We will resize rings for free once (buyer is responsible for return shipping to our workshoppe). Any additional re-sizings can be done for a small fee. Please contact us for resizing information.
