Handmade cover for the popular American Field Notes notebooks. Also suitable for Moleskin notebooks, or other 14 x 9 cm notebooks. The cover is made of vegetable tanned bovine leather, which will last a lifetime. The seam is hand-stitched with saddle stitch, a method used by saddlemakers for centuries, and is stronger than machine seam.
The cover accommodates a notebook that you can attach to the right pocket. Then you also have room for papers, money or cards in the left pockets. Alternatively, the notebook can be attached with a cover in each pocket.
The pen holder is made of the same type of leather and acts as a lock when the pen is in place.
The seam is hand-stitched with waxed polyester thread, and the stitches are laid double in places that are subject to more wear. All edges are rounded, painted with two layers of matching edge color and inserted with beeswax for added protection.
This product is completely handmade and all seams are sewn with saddle stitch. I use leather from reputable tanneries, durable thread and proven techniques. Leather is a natural product, and no goods are alike. It may have marks from the animal, but it is a sign that the leather is of high quality and such marks are not abraded.
Some items may be in stock, but mainly all goods are made to order. Therefore, calculate one to two weeks production time before the item is shipped.
Good leather becomes finer with time. All my products are made from high quality raw materials. Please note that colors may differ slightly from the product images.
