Leather Journal with Designer Fabric Lining A5 size

The Designer Collection embraces beautiful fabrics and silky threads with gorgeous leather to create pieces to be enjoyed and treasured.

Hand stitched leather journals have a magical quality!  Used for hundreds of years, you can feel this tradition when you hold one.


Hidden treasures wait to be explored within the covers of beautiful leathers. The fabrics will be available for a limited time only and will continually change. Just add your preferred fabric to the shopping cart when you order your journal. 

Please note that not all fabric and leather combinations have been photographed but I will add them as they become available. Choose from the following current designs:

Zig Zag by Jen Kingwell

Fun and bright colours by Torquay designer.

Beach Road Leaf by Jen Kingwell

Leaves in rhythm

Charcoal Fish by Sarah Watts

Strong bold and fishy with bright pink triangle gills of course!

Sea Stallion by Tula Pink

The steeds of the Sea in beautiful green and blue



Choose a colour from the beautiful range of quality genuine cowhide leathers. These leathers are chosen for their soft and supple feel as well as their deep rich colours and patterns.

Handcrafted in the style of an earlier era, each journal is a work of art and signed by the Binder.  Read about the Leather Journal story here...>

The Treasured Qualities of a Handcrafted Journal:

  • Strength - the hand stitched pages result in a stronger journal than glued books
  • Flexibility - the soft leather covers tuck easily into bags, pockets and backpacks - unlike hard covered books
  • Easy to write in - pages lay flat - NO spiral bindings
  • Protection - the wrap around cover protects the fore edge of the pages, the wrapping strap helps to hold the cover securely closed
  • Sensual - the feel of a handcrafted leather journal delights the senses.  Soft and flexible to the touch and visually beautiful
  • A Sense of Ritual - the wrapping and unwrapping of the journal is a moment of ritual that many leather journal owners savour
  • It's Your Story - Writing becomes an experience again!  Holding a writing instrument in your hand and making your mark is very personal.

This Handcrafted Journal features:

  • Beautiful Liberty of London Fabric lining
  • A5 Leather Journal (approx 21cm H x 15cm W - Half an A4)
  • Quality genuine leather handcrafted cover

A5 is a very popular size.  Favoured for it's ease of portability while still allowing plenty of room for lots of writing, sketches, keepsakes and personal style within the pages.
Ideal for writers, poets, song writers, travel thoughts, sketches, journal keepers and all those who love to keep treasures within pages of books!  
And of course - the perfect companion for sharing your story while sitting under that favourite tree, or discreetly in the back of that wonderful cafe where the coffee is as rich as the constant evolving cast of characters.

    Such a good quality product, couldn't be happier, bought as a present, you can see the time and care taken to produce it. The leather, stitching and embossing were great as is the quality of the paper. Great job!

    I already owned 2 of the A5 journals prior to purchasing a journal with designer collection fabric inside. Wow! The fabric is more beautiful than it appears in photos on the website. Has made the journal extra special.
