More info

This Journal is the ultimate one-of-a-kind item. A leaf pattern is stamped on the cover of each journal with natural tree leaves. Each leaf can only be used once. The result becomes apparent only after the product is carefully hand painted, coated with a special lacquer made from beeswax and oils according to our original recipe, and hand polished. That is why the Journal is like nature – always unique and unexpected. The vegetable-tanned leather that we use is an inspiring material as its exceptional plasticity allows us to achieve the impossible. Our Autumn Leaves Journal is the perfect gift for yourself or your friend when you want to give something that nobody else in the world has.

Leather

The covers of this book are made from vegetable-tanned cow leather. The leather is produced using time-honored tanning methods. The vegetable tanning process involves the use of natural tannin found in tree bark. Tannin is also the root for the world “tanning”. We hand dye the leather for the covers of each book separately with water-based, non-toxic dyes. Thus, each book is one-of-a-kind, since each piece of leather reacts differently to the dye pigment. Almost all the books that you see on our website have been dyed with three to four different dyes in order to achieve a certain shade or effect. We finish the process by coating the leather with a water-based lacquer of natural beeswax and oils prepared according to our own “recipe”. The coated leather is then dried and hand polished. The extraordinary result is something you have never seen before and something large leather factories cannot duplicate.

Paper
In this book we use Hahnemühle Artist paper called Ingres. It is a mould-made ivory paper named after the famous French painter Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres (1780-1867). This paper is ideal for pencil, crayon, pastel, red ochre and watercolours, as well as for gel, ink or fountain pen. We love Hahnemühle paper for the uncompromising quality provided by this German paper mill with over 420 years of experience in the field.

Endleaves
In this book we use for endleaves handmade lokta paper from our Nepal friends. This paper is made from the fibrous bark of the Daphne Cannabina which grows at high altitudes in the Himalayas.
Leather: vegetable tanned top-grain calf skin. Hand-colored.
