We use only 100% Genuine Buffalo Leather. It is High Quality Leather and is never PU, bonded or fake leather. We inspect every order for imperfections, but if anything slips through the net, please contact us and we will make it right.
As all our products are made from 100% real leather, it is therefore a natural product which always produces a variation in the look and feel. This means that you get a beautifully unique product not quite like anyone else’s!
If you are not happy with the leather appearance, please get in touch and we will do all we can to help you.
Our leather is naturally distressed and tanned with special oil – this is what gives the real leather its vintage appearance. Don’t worry if you see scratches, rub the blemish slowly with your thumb and the natural oils on your hands will help it fade!
Again, if you feel that the marks are too severe or you can’t remove them, please get in touch.
All of the leathers we use are pre-treated with oil or tanned, therefore it should need minimal treatment. However, if the leather gets very dry, you can use any type of natural leather conditioner to keep the leather moisturized if you wish but it depends on the look you want to achieve as it is likely to make it shinier and/or darker than in its original form. You can also use mink oil and vegetable oils to darken/soften the leather if desired instead.
The raw leather used to make our products comes to the approved tanneries from other industries as a by-product so the whole animal has already been used for other purposes and is not killed purely for the hide.
LEATHER JOURNALS QUESTIONS:
Probably the best type of pen is a gel pen or ball point pen, and pencils with a softer lead such as a 2B. However, we’ve had good feedback from customers about all sorts of different mediums that they’ve used successfully, including pencils, assorted pens, charcoals and fountain pens.
It depends on how much ink the type of ink pen lays down through the nib. Some customers have said they have had very good results with ink pens. One or two customers have said that they have had a little bleed through. The cotton paper is quite fibrous and thick, so it has the ability to absorb ink well.
Customers have told us they have used it for watercolours and oils with success. If you search some of the reviews, some of them have described how it went and posted pictures of the results. The paper is thick and holds paint well.
It is cotton paper made from cotton waste, recycled from the clothing industry in South Asia, handmade by Indian artisans – it’s environmentally friendly, as it’s tree-free and acid-free! The paper is soft and fibrous and is around 125gsm (UK paperweight).
A lot of our journals are non-refillable keepsake journals. However, we do have a clearly named Refillable Journal in our shop and our Psalm 46 Embossed Journal is also refillable. Watch this space for our Tree and Heart Journals to soon come as refillable option. We also supply lined and unlined refills for our refillable journals.
Yes, all of our journals lay flat when they are opened. Due to the type of soft leather we use, when you open the cover, the weight of the leather holds the pages open nicely.
