Oak Bark Leather Binding - We have made a limited number of Journals with Oak Bark Leather. This leather is from a pile of rejected hides at the Devon tannery left building up over years. Some of these hides are 30 years old. They were rejected because of irregular dyeing, or natural blemishes or scarring on the cows skin. They were originally made for the equestrian industry and used for bridles.We have selected hides with loads of character, each one uniquely different and no two alike. You get a sense from the images.

Oak Bark leather is processed using bark from the English Oak tree to transform Devon cowhides to leather at a tannery in Colyton East Devon. There has been a tannery on that site since Roman times and they are now the last in Europe making leather in this way.

made from:

Leather bound journal, hand-made with re-fillable pages.

This re-fillable journal came about as a collaboration between two traditional skills - the leatherworker and the bookbinder. The leather binding is made carefully by hand using a naturally tanned leather from Florence, Italy. It has a vintage looking grainy finish typical of the region. This binding is far too good to be used only once so we make this special writing book refillable so you can use the binding again and again, the leather becoming more beautiful with time. The pages are sewn, not glued, which means they will lie flat wherever you open the book - a subtle luxury. They have a cloth spine on which you could write and file away for reference purposes. The paper is unlined, and can be written on with a fountain pen without the ink bleeding through the paper. The paper is recycled and off white in colour. The raw material is well known for its quality in the printing trade and goes by the name of Woodland Wove.

All journals come to you in an attractive box with the full story on the outside.

Our natural leather binding is made from Italian cowhide from Florence at a family tannery where they still use the ancient method of tanning with bark from mimosa and chestnut trees rather than chemicals to slowly transform the hides into leather. The slow process of bark tanning yields a leather with a smell and patina reminiscent of a time past.

The leather is full grain meaning that the natural appearance of the cows skin with all its imperfections and blemishes are apparent. This is leather bursting with character and no two are the same.
