Materials: recycled rubber bicycle inner tube, elastic, thread, reclaimed rubber, rubber, inner tube, tire, recycled rubber
[jour.nal ban.do.lier n.] a strap fitted with small loops for carrying pens, pencils, and other handy tools wrapped around a journal, planner, or other book.
Some time ago I made a journal bandolier for myself. After the 8th person asked me where they could get one it occurred to me that I wasn't the only person sick of losing pens and breaking pencil points, or having inspiration hit only to find I had nothing to draw or write with!
This style of Bandolier is handmade using reclaimed rubber and elastic.
The Vital Stats:
- The strap of this bandolier is 2 inches wide
- It measures 5.75 inches long when laid flat
- Each slot is approximately 1 inch wide
- There are a total of 7 loops
What will it fit?
- The journal it is tailored to is the 5.25" wide Moleskine (11.5" around)
- It will stretch to fit larger books with circumferences up to around 13.5"
- The slots will fit tools up to the size of a standard sharpie.
Because this bandolier is made from reclaimed rubber it will show lots of character and individuality due to the fact that each one starts out life as a bicycle inner tube.
This is a handmade item and will have variations from the photograph as the one in the photograph has been sold.
I find many of my materials at a center for creative reuse to improve the carbon footprint things I make.
Custom widths and loop sizes are available upon request. See the additional images for alternate fabric selections.

I love the bandolier. It arrived less than a week after I ordered it and it fits my Moleskine journal nicely! The slots hold all of my writing tools, from slim rollerballs to my biggest fountain pens. It's sturdy, and well-made. I love it. Thank you! Also, the little booklet that came with the bandolier is very nice.
Ok, this is the most awesome thing ever!! OMG, I love it! It's well made and fits perfectly! I am obsessed with Moleskines and sketchbooks and I'll have to get them for all of mine. The mini sketchbook included is SWEET!!!
