A luxurious journal bound in fine Italian leather
A very special personalised gift for someone to record those unique times, thoughts, experiences or possibly just the shopping list.
Our Leather Bound Moleskine Journal is perfect for the creative spirit or the business person wanting to impress clients with something other than run of the mill notebooks. Whether you write, sketch or design, chase business deals and close sales this is the essential stationary accessory for you.
Add individuality to the iconic Moleskine Classic Journal. Keep the leather cover and replace the book when full. With each new Journal the hand made leather cover stays with you developing its unique patina and feel gradually becoming more and more familiar, like a good old friend.
We specialise in designing and making covers from beautiful leathers for the iconic Moleskine range of journals. You will love the combination of the ivory pages with the luxurious feel and rich colour of naturally tanned leather.
You can personalise with up to 10 letters mixed case. Your message, name or initials will be embossed on the front of the notebook. To avoid the personalisation being obscured by the elastic closure we emboss your personalisation vertically as shown in the image.
Choice of 4 page formats. The pages can be formatted plain, lined, squared or dots for Bullet Journal lovers. Acid-free, ivory coloured paper. Refills are readily available from good stationers.
Sizes - The Classic Journal is available in 3 sizes Pocket Size, Large and Extra Large
The hand made leather binding is available in Saddle Tan, Conker, Tumbled Mahogany and Espresso made for us in a family run, environmentally friendly tannery in Florence. Instead of industrial chemicals this tannery used tree based plant extracts to transform the cowhides into a supple leather.
Tanner Bates products are different. We are hand makers, leather specialists, a small business of 3 makers - all apprentice trained in our Devon workshop. Our roots are in traditional equestrian leatherwork and our techniques and hand tools are the same as those used by saddlers and bridlemakers for generations.
We pay attention to details especially our edges which are sanded, sealed and burnished. This edging detail, which can only be achieved by hand with time and concentration, is only found on traditional hand made leatherwork. This technique and the quality of our leather is what makes Tanner Bates products different from other mass produced and factory made items.
Made from Italian leather naturally tanned in the traditional way with plant extracts.
To care for your Tanner Bates Leather goods apply an occasional dose of Hide Food to keep your leather supple and long lasting. If it gets wet first let it dry out naturally, then apply Hide Food to stop the leather drying out.
To maintain durability and suppleness dress occasionally with Tanner Bates Hide Food.
