 Handcrafted Leather Journal - Chesterfield Ruby Red

Handmade from the leather used to create the beautiful traditional Chesterfield furniture.

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

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:

  • A5 Leather Journal (approx 21cm H x 15cm W - Half an A4)
  • Quality genuine leather handcrafted cover
  • Genuine kangaroo leather wrap around strap
  • 144 pages

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.
Chesterfield Ruby Red Leather
This genuine cowhide leather displays a rich antique look.  Hand rubbed in the Chesterfield tradition, to create the worn appearance of treasured items.  The Ruby Red is similar to a claret wine colour - just beautiful!

And you are supporting and enabling an Artisan Tradition to continue! 

From the Maker's Hands to Yours...

A labour of Pride & Love!

Thank You

    My Own Piece Of Chesterfield.

    Posted by Danielle on 24th Apr 2016

    I'm thrilled that this A5 journal is made with the same leather that Chesterfield construct their furniture from. Now I own a little piece of Chesterfield! The colour of the leather is gorgeous, and the journal is produced beautifully. Beverley really is an artist who a) knows her trade, and b) cares about what she's producing. I loved dealing with her. She made the whole purchasing process easy, and was swift to deliver my journals. Excellent work!
