More About Leather of This Notebook

Full-Grain Leather is the Highest Grade of Leather
Milwaukee full-grain leather comes from the top layer of a cow's skin, unaltered by manufacturing.

A notebook made from this leather is handcrafted in the USA by highly skilled artisans in Mooresville, North Carolina.

Durability: Its dense grain makes it the strongest leather, built to last.

Breathability: The natural material breathes with use, reducing sweat.

Patina: Oils softly emerge, blending imperfections into a patina that accentuates its understated beauty.

Ages Well: Proper care helps it endure for decades, improving with time.

Natural Look: Full-grain retains its organic texture, connecting users to its authentic luxury.

Vegetable Tanning: Natural and Eco-Friendly

Vegetable tanning preserves hides using tree bark, leaves, and fruit - nature's tannins. This traditional technique relies on renewable materials, not harsh chemicals, honoring sustainability.

Over decades, the leather has gained a special patina, like favorite jeans. Though vegetable-tanned leather isn't as indestructible as some types, proper care ensures durability and long wear.

The process cleanses the hides, finishing antibacterial and rarely triggering allergies. People and the planet benefit from this craft honed over generations.

This Milwaukee leather mini journal is perfect for travelers who seek writing in a notebook that doesn’t take up space but can still get the job done.

While many smaller journals can be frustrating to write in because of their limited size, this one is large enough to warrant ease of use.

It is also still small enough that it can be thrown into any carrying device. Lightweight and sleek, this personalized leather journal is perfect to keep track of reminders, to-do lists and crucial dates. Prepared for a long haul, this journal is the best travel companion for your thoughts and backpack.

The quality of the Milwaukee leather cover makes for a durable journal, and one that is great for men and women alike.

Read More About Crazy Horse Leather

Soft Crazy Horse leather earns its name from an intricate tanning and waxing technique that maintains the hides' natural suppleness. While the name may imply roughness, these leather goods feel smooth and flexible.

Unmatched Softness and Suppleness:

Minimally finished, Crazy Horse leather retains the oils and grains inherent to the animal hide. Consequently, it resists stiffening over time and instead develops a patina that conforms to the user, feeling broken-in, velvety, and luxurious against the skin from the first touch. Its unparalleled softness persists for years as the leather ages gracefully.

Perfect in size for on-the-go writers, this custom notebook can travel around a workplace, campus or town. The cover is made out of crazy horse distressed leather that is designed to look aged or worn. It allows the cover to have broken and vintage appearance without weakening the overall integrity of the leather. This is a great leather-bound magazine from olpr.
