Deep Violet Purple Leather

A journal for lovers of Purple

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 leather handcrafted cover
  • Kangaroo leather wrap around strap

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.
This deep purple violet coloured leather is very soft and produces a beautifully supple journal.  I have stitched with purple thread and teamed with a purple kangaroo leather wrapping strap resulting in a pleasing... purple, purple & purple combination. Ideal for lovers of Purple!

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

    Bound in luxurious soft leather and amazing purple colour, this is a great gift for anyone (or a treat for yourself). Paper is great quality too and the journal is stitched perfectly. I had the first page specially printed as a 50th gift for my frien

    I had the first page specially printed as a 50th gift for my friend to take on a European trip, as a journal for her adventures. She loved it. It is the perfect gift that keeps on giving, it will hold special memories for years to come.

    Workmanship is beautiful. Much nicer than I thought it would be.
