Leather Quality

Classic journal cover is handmade of Horween Dublin Leather. This leather type is full grain - it is made from the uppermost part of the hide, where fibers are the most dense and strong.

Full grain is valued for its natural unadulterated surface where one can see small scars, variations in color, stretch marks and fly bites. Every item made of such cowhide is unique in its look and character. With time this leather gets only softer and betters as it acquires noble patina, partial, from absorbing oils when being handled.

Order Your Custom Personalization

Make this journal look more special with custom inscription. We offer two types of personalization: embossing and engraving.

Initials and short words up to 10 symbols are embossed on the cover in bottom right corner using Arial font. We offer free embossing up to 3 characters but you can order more with custom request.

Logo and images are engraved in the center of the journal. For engraving we kindly ask you to upload only vector format images.

Personalized items cannot be retured for refund.

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.

I've had my original Classic Notebook Cover in "Chestnut" for 2+ years and despite heavy daily use, countless refills, and a whole lot of airline miles, the cover has held up incredibly well and still looks as good as the day I received it, unlike cheaper covers that started to fall apart after less than 6 months. I could not be happier with OLPR, and just ordered my 2nd cover in the "Natural" color. I get asked all the time about my current cover, and refer all of my friends. Highly Recommend!
