Journaling Is Important
Like you, we have a lot going on. Work, home, play – making decisions, organizing schedules, planning for fun – always a “To Do”. We know that wading through all the stuff of life can feel like walking against the surf. But overwhelming evidence says that journaling helps keep us on track, whether writing our way through our priorities, telling a story or adventure, or making a list to relieve the stress of all we carry in our heads. In fact, you might consider these journals a leather mind palace!
At the very least, journaling creates time and space for quiet, even if just long enough to write a sentence.
Your Journal Is Important
Sold on the idea of journals, we wanted to make one that reflected the value of what we’d put inside – we wanted the beauty of our memories, gratitude, travels, or business plans to have a home of equal beauty that would stand the test of time. Like you, we love tradition, family, the inherited pieces treasured and passed down. We love the smoothness of an old wooden chair and the character of worn-in leather. We wanted a journal that embodied these traits and took us on an inspired journey to the future.
Leatherpress was born from this desire to curate leather journals and leather notebooks that match the value of the thoughts written within.
Our South African heritage led us to a small leather company in Vereeniging, South Africa specializing in leather for book binding. They source the leather from the wilds of South Africa and process it using a Teseo cutting machine. The result is the soft full-grain leather on our Heritage journals and the pebbled leather for the Inspire notebooks, the first two of our collections to be released.
While journaling is rewarding, we know getting started can be a challenge. Check out our How To page for ideas, and even some downloadable templates to get that journal going.
Leather With Character
We only work with premium, full-grain, African leather, which we perfect with classical stitching and binding methods. Our high-quality leather is strong but soft to the touch, and each piece is different just like every person is different! It will take on an individual patina over time, giving your journal its own distinctive character.
Every Leatherpress journal comes complete with carefully considered details and finishing touches, including gilded pages on our Heritage journals, and an accordion-style storage pocket inside our Inspire notebooks. All journals and notebooks are finished with a debossed Leatherpress logo.
We know you will love your Leatherpress Heritage journal or Inspire notebook, but in the event that there is something amiss with your order, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org so we can make it right!
