Amalfi paper is completely made by the artisans in one of the world's oldest paper mills, on the Amalfi coast of Italy. Cotton fiber paper is heavily textures, airy and light with a watermark. The paper is white and has a very strong tooth, making it perfect for drawing, sketching, writing, or painting.
The leather color can vary from a warm honey brown to almost black. Each is unique and one-of-a-kind. Of course the book is acid free and archival so your memories will be preserved for generations to come.
This journal is a new item made to have a distressed vintage look. That means that the leather has been made to look older than it is and has markings on it to give it its unique styling. Scarring and inconsistencies in the leather are not defects but rather are what gives each piece its unique old world charm.
