Handmade Leather Journal


Everything about this journal is special and completely made by hand. We partnered with a women's group who create recycled paper to craft these beloved, handmade leather bound journals. Using their community's scrap paper, they give old paper new life. 

  • ~30 Recycled Paper Pages
  • Size: H 8.25" x L 6.5"
  • Inside Leather Pocket
  • Vegetable Leather Cover designed to be reused for life
  • Leather Wrap Tie and Pen Holder

The Process

Lots of thought and love goes into making these journals. From start to finish of the beautiful process, our artisan partners in Ecuador make them by hand. Recycled paper is reduced down to be able to create fresh, new sheets for these handmade leather journals. Then we use Vegetable Tanned Leather to make a one-of-a-kind cover designed to be reused and last for generations.

We partner with a small, family-run business that has worked with suela, a vegetable-tanned cow leather, for over 25 years. Each journal is made by hand with high-quality leather that is naturally-dyed and free of chemicals to reveal its unique texture and natural imperfections. The leather will naturally wear over time, picking up oils to soften and beautify.


Our products are handmade and one-of-a-kind by our artisan partners in Ecuador. This means that no two are exactly alike and almost all contain irregularities from size to color. Please allow for slight imperfections as this is what adds to the unique character of each hat and band.


If you are in between sizes or unsure of your hat size,   we recommend sizing up. Most of our hats run small given an elastic band on the inside that makes for a snug fit. Please use the chat button on our site if you have any questions.
