About skooBooks

Sales 95
On Etsy since 2013

Our passion, your diary!

The first page of our journal, skooBooks, it was written in 2009 when Alex wanted to gift his girlfriend a journal. As he did not find something thankful, he decided to make it from scratch. After a little bit of research, he managed to make one, on his knees, without machines and special tools. The journal was very well appreciated, so people who had seen the beautiful gift, asked him to make journals for their beloved. This was the beginning of a beautiful adventure which today bears the name skooBooks.
Since then, they lost track of the hours spent in the workshop, creating new models, experiencing the dream and turning it into reality.
