Cover for journal is made of all natural cowhide produced by Horween Company located in USA. Full grain leather type is the best quality leather money can buy. It comes from the top part of the hide, just below the hair, where leather is strong and thick.
Due to handmade nature, this leather is subject to color change, sometimes it can be lighter / darker than in the picture as each hide reacts to dyeing process differently.
Unique feature of full grain leather is its natural pattern showing scars, stretch marks and insects bites which animal got during life. This leather has very nice tactility, it is pleasant to hold in hands and use. Rather than wearing out, full grain ages nicely, developing patina.
