Handmade Italian Distressed Leather Journal - Lined Pages

$ 100.00

Handmade in Italy

Our Distressed Leather Journal with lined pages is a beautiful example of classic Italian bookbinding, handcrafted by skilled artisans in Siena, Italy. This is a one-of-a-kind journal made to last a lifetime.

Like an old volume discovered in a Medieval monastery, the leather is timeworn, with scuffs, scrapes, uneven patches and rough spots. It is intentionally made to look older than it is. The irregular markings are not defects, but marks of character that make the journal look and feel like it has had years of use.

Perfect for writing, with faint ruled lines in sepia ink.

This distressed leather journal is for the person who wants an antique vintage feel. This means that the leather has been made to look older than it is and has markings on it to give it its unique patina. Scarring and inconsistencies in the leather are not defects but marks of character that give each piece its unique old world charm. This is a leather journal that will age beautifully with you.
