This is the Earthworks Journals A5 (Medium) Distressed Oxblood Red Leather Wraparound Travel Journal. We make this journal from a natural, vegetable tanned, full grain leather. This leather comes to us in pristine condition and we put it through various dying and staining techniques to give it a distressed look. We've gone for the look of a worn and battered pair of everyone's favourite make of oxblood boots for this journal. We finish the rustic look by leaving the natural edge of the hide on the wraparound flap, each one of these will be unique, some will have quite a straight edge, some will have a bit of a slant and some will be irregular. As it is the natural edge of the leather you might even find small scars, cuts or even holes on this edge. You can see in the images how much they can vary. This is the sort of journal that you can throw in your rucksack without worrying too much about it. The wraparound cover encloses the paper and is held in place with thonging that we make from the same leather.
The supple but very sturdy leather makes this a perfect travel journal to take on your adventures.
