Leather journals handmade in Indianapolis, Indiana

I fell in love with bookbinding after making my very first journal back in college. I started Binding Bee after graduation and worked full-time as an artist for over a decade. In 2018, I became a mama and now stay at home with our daughter. I currently run Binding Bee on a much smaller scale, but still delight in being able to create beautiful journals and to connect with people all over the world.

I am so grateful that you have stopped in to visit my little corner of the internet! Please connect with me on Instagram or Facebook, or drop a line on Etsy.

Thanks for shopping on Etsy and supporting handmade! It means the world to makers like me.

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.
