Cacao Brown Leather Journal

Remind yourself of the rootedness of the past with this rich rosy brown journal. This natural color will wear into what you make it to be, becoming a treasure possession with the scuffs and patina showing what life has worked into its grain. Embrace the swirls and the stillness. Write and record. Start your story. 

Milestone Journal

Choose a Cacao Brown journal to record your child’s milestones. This earthy color suggests fertile soil for growth and rooting, and evokes the lasting items of home – a brown leather workbag, mom’s favorite boots, the straps on the log carrier. Keep track of all those extraordinary “firsts” – first smile, first word, first wave- all in your brown leather journal.

Leather With Character

We only work with premium, full-grain, African leather, which we perfect with classical stitching and binding methods. You’ll be delighted with our high-quality, strong and long lasting leather. As a bonus, see your journal’s unique patina emerge naturally as you use it, giving your journal its own distinctive character.

Paper Perfection

Our ivory acid-free paper has been selected for its opacity and exceptional ability to absorb ink. The pages are 80gsm, a paper weight that lends itself to a smooth and elegant writing experience, while the end sheets are a firm and luxurious 200gsm.

Binding Craftsmanship

Our journals make use of Smyth sewing. David McConnell Smyth, an Irish-American bookbinder, developed this technique in the late 1800s.  Smyth was the first to sew collections of folded pages together by thread in a method still known today for its strength and durability.

Our Signature

Every Leatherpress journal comes complete with carefully considered details.  We finish our Heritage journals with gilded pages, a table of contents, and a gold debossed Leatherpress logo on the front right corner.
