To make this rustic travellers journal, we sought out the softest full-grain goatskin leather. Specially designed for the wanderlust, it’s blank ivory maplitho pages are perfect to capture reminiscences and anecdotes from journeys and travels. The leather gets better with time and use, capturing sweet memories from lands far away. The journal is tied around with a leather strap that wraps around the book to hold the cover closed. This journal is artisan sewn and crafted with meticulous care. Given its hand-finished nature, imperfections are to be expected and celebrated.
The heavily charactered goatskin leather is vegetable tanned, a traditional craft process handed down from father-to-son. It is a marvelous environment-friendly process taking place slowly in wooden drums. Among the various tanning methods, the vegetable tanning is the most natural, most classical, the most traditional and the most recognisable; the only one able to give leather its unique characteristics.
