Lock and Key Journals, Baby Book, Military Journals, Vegan Cork Books

I fell in love with bookbinding after making my very first journal back in college. I started Binding Bee to be able to share my love of handmade books with the world.
After becoming a mom, I scaled Binding Bee down from being a full-time career and now delight in being able to create beautiful journals part-time while still connecting with people all over the world from the comfort of my little home studio here in Indianapolis, Indiana.

I hope you enjoying browsing my selection of lock and key journals, baby books, Military journals, and more. Please feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions!

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.
