This journal style is made in small batches. The journal you receive may vary slightly from the one pictured. The leather is naturally scuffed and marked– these markings are considered beautiful imperfections and an expression of character.

Custom Stamping
Personalize your leather journal with custom stamped initials for an additional $10. Include up to 8 initials on the cover. The leather is stamped by hand using 24pt antique metal type. Add custom stamping to your order.


All steps in the making of this journal are approached the old world way using hand tools: awl, needle & thread, ruler, bone folder, hole punch & a steel blade. Each piece is an original design and made in small batches in our studio on Orcas Island, WA. Bound by hand with careful consideration for Earth, a little curiosity, and a hint of magic in-between.

Your journal will arrive beautifully wrapped in fabric. Ready to be given or received.
