This is a rustic leather bound journal, individually handcrafted by myself at my studio, located in the big sky country of Montana. This journal shares the same nostalgic charms of the centuries old travel journals.

This journal is made from a soft full grain leather. The color is Rust brown with dark brown stitching & tie closure. This is a soft wrap around journal.

The size of the journal is approximately 6 inches by 9 inches. This journal has 156 leaves (and 312 pages, counting both sides). It has 6 sections/signatures, and each section is directly and permanently sewn to the leather, using the traditional longstitch binding.

The paper is 70 lbs. unlined text paper, and it is acid free and eco-friendly. The color of the paper is a shade of tan with tiny earth tone speckles. It is a very rustic paper to compliment the natural leather. This is an excellent quality text paper and it works well with ink(no feathering/bleeding). The papers are hand torn and the journal has two hand torn edges(top edge & bottom edge). The leather is hand cut. I used a sturdy leather lace for the tie closure. The tie closure wraps around the journal a couple of times in one direction and the end is tucked under the wrapped lace. I try to keep the tie closure very simple & functional, and this tie closure is very practical for frequent use :)

This journal will be ideal for everyday writers, poems, artists' sketches & ideas, diary, travel journal, recipes, dream journal, guest book, graduation and for many other occasions.
