Full Grain Real Leather

Cover for this journal is made of full grain cow leather. Hides for production are sourced from Horween Tannery. Full grain is the best quality leather as it is not altered or weakened with buffing in the process of creation, which allows to preserve a texture of the hide as well as keep density of the grain.

This leather has very natural look but, as it has no coating or pigment, it is also a subject to color variantions, scratching and staining. On the smooth leather surface one can notice skin imperfections of the animal like wrinkles, scars or stretch marks. These characteristic attributes to the leather popularity, as each item made of full grain leather has unique look.

Two Types of Personalization

Custom personalization can be added with two different techniques, depending on what you want to add.

Monogramming and short words up to 10 symbols are added with embossing. We offer 3 letters for free, if you need more, please, contact for custom order. Location for embossing is bottom right corner on the front of the cover, font used is Arial 5mm high.

Logos, images and longer inscriptions are engraved on leather with laser. For image engraving please add your design in a vector format.

Personalized items cannot be returned or replaced.

More About The Leather

What is full grain leather

Basically, leather is trillions of interwoven fibers. The closer you get to the surface, the smaller and denser become those fibers.

Hence, the top layer is the strongest and the most durable cut one can buy. The term “Full Grain” is used to define that top, uppermost layer of the cow hide which was not sanded or polished.

What is vegetable tanned

When we speak about leather, obviously it needs to be preserved before it can be used for crafting and making goods. Vegetable tanning is actually the way leather hide is preserved. This method is one of the many possible, but its distinctive feature is in all-natural technique. Hides are soaked in certain tubs filled with natural solutions, like tree bark.

These extracts are dense, and when they bind to the hide, they fill in the gaps in the fibers. By filling these gaps the leather becomes even more durable and tight. After that, it is finished with a combination of transparent waxes and oils, which gives the leather a very soft feel. Every piece made of vegetable tanned leather has unique shades and nuances, which are a mark of genuineness.

What is pull-up effect

So, by now you know a bit more about full grain leather production and its tanning. We touched upon natural extracts and wax&oil finish so you can understand what is so called “pull-up”.

When full grain leather is stretched or pulled, the color migrates and becomes lighter in the pulled areas. Hence the term pull-up.

Basically, it happens because oils and waxes are displaced on the surface by a movement of the material. It is a characteristic of natural tanning processes.

Leather wrinkles

Other characteristics to take note of are wrinkles. As full grain leather is not sanded during production it preserves its natural look.

Normally, the cow has wrinkles where the skin was bent, like on the neck, near legs etc. These wrinkles are not removed on purpose. They show that leather is correctly processed full grain top hide.

Leather scars

Same as wrinkles, scars on leather hide are also preserved. During its life the animal may get scratches, insects bites or small wounds.

As a result of natural healing there remains a scar.

After the hide is separated from the flash, these marks are left untouched as required by the technology.
