Notebook cover A5
Notebook cover A5
Made from a beautiful piece of vegetable tanned leather, this stylish and strong cover is designed to hold an A5 moleskin / notebook.
On the rear inside cover there is a slot through which the elastic of a notebook can be drawn though and wrapped over the front cover to secure. On the front inside cover is a small slot to hold a card or book mark.
*Notebook with elastic strap not included*
The entire piece is built by hand from my workshop, no machines are used at any stage. The leather is measured and cut in order to incorporate the natural markings of the hide. After this the individual pieces are hand-sewn using the saddle stitch method - 2 needles and thread used simultaneously to create the strongest bond - if one thread breaks the work will not unravel.
Finally the raw edges are bevelled and burnished using beeswax to form smooth, strong edges that will wear naturally over time.
H 22.5 W 15.5
Will fit a notepad up to 21cm x 14.8cm, 1cm thick - though I'm happy to tweak the design to fit a specific notepad you might own.
Let me know if you'd like your name or initials stamped onto the item, free of charge! Each letter measures roughly 5mm x 8mm . These can be placed wherever you like.
What is Veg Tan Leather?
The ancient craft of naturally tanning leather is complex and fascinating. Only natural materials such as leaves and husks are used to dye the leather, after which, each hide is hung for several weeks. This is compared to the globally dominant method of Chromium tanning, which reduces the process to a mere few days. Whilst certainly time-effective, it is important to me to try to avoid using chrome-tanned leather, as the vast use of chemicals in this process is very harmful to the environment, our waterways and oceans.
Apart from this being an ethical choice, it’s very much aesthetic and practical – veg-tan leather is beautiful, often displaying the history of life through scars and imperfections. The material will develop a wonderful patina unique to each owner and after years become a treasured object.
