Ideal for writing thoughts, meditations and notes, this durable journal is handcrafted of genuine saddlery leather and has a beautiful, rustic finish. Each journal has its own rich burgundy tone. Certain "imperfections" in natural leather products are a part of their character and are inevitable… therefore, no two are exactly alike. Leather gets more distinguished with age and wear. Convenient strap closure wraps around journal and tucks into itself.
