The piece I received is a work of art. The craftsmanship is second to none, and it is more than I expected. The finished product is even nicer than the pictures, and fancy myself a fairly picky person. This cover will last several lifetimes, and I can't wait to see how it ages over time. I do not buy too many things on Etsy, but when I do it is hit and miss. With this product, you can actually see the love and personal pride in the work. If you are looking for a Moleskine cover, you should not settle for something else. This is the best.

Masterfully hand-crafted. Handsome. Robust. Will last many life-times. Totally impressed with this obvious labor of love.

When I hear people say " they don't make things like they use to", I have to smile because here at Hammonds Leatherworks, I still do.

Everything that comes out of this shop is built by me, by hand, one at a time. I use techniques and tools that have been developed and tested by master leatherworks for hundreds of years.

I never compromise quality for price. I strive for to maintain high quality, exceptional durability and functional design on every item I build.

I have worked with alligator for many years. Most alligator items available are from the high fashion industry. I have developed alligator products that will hold up to the same use that you would expect outdoor leather gear to hold up to . My alligator items both look great and are designed for everyday use.

I use top quality materials in order to have top quality products. I do not use craft kits or purchased interiors like many other items listed on Etsy.

My gator products are made using genuine American alligator which have been legally obtained. They have been tanned at a family owned tanneries here in the USA. The leather products are US prime steer hides tanned in the United States.
