    Keeping a journal has been deeply healing in my own life and I love getting to make beautiful books for other people to tell their stories in. I love working with my hands & running a small business from our home here in Indy.

Care instructions

I use reclaimed, job-lot leather in the creation of my journals. Most of it is chrome tanned leather which requires no maintenance or upkeep. Some of the more rugged leather I use is oil-tanned and will distress and patina with use, but do not require any additional oil or conditioner. If you have specific question about the piece you are interested in, please get in touch with me.
