The SNOWBELL handmade from the finest eco-friendly materials in the colours of your choice.
The design includes a hand-sewn card wallet section and a full-height rear pocket.
The edges are bevelled and polished. Choose you thread and elastic colours to accompany this totally hand-made cover.
The leather used is real, genuine full grain, the uppermost section of leather.
All the external edges are bevelled and burnished to a delicious finish.
The wallet section in the front of the Notebook can be configured with either vertical or horizontal opening card pockets.
Behind these is a full-height pocket for papers or cash? The number of card pockets will depend on the overall size of your Notebook. Eg. The REGULAR has more space than the PASSPORT. The leather cover will fit at a minimum, 4 refills and you should find 6 is achievable. If you want to really stuff your journal out with lots of pages, it is always advisable to choose the maximum overhang (EXTREME). The leather will soon soften and undyed versions will begin to develop a patina of their own within a short period of use. Before I can construct your TN, the leather has to be dyed, as undyed, it is usually a creamy-white. The dying process is again, a manual process. Every TN will have first been buffed, then given a coat of Neatsfoot oil to maintain it’s condition, before the dye is rubbed into the leather. Every piece I make will look a little different to all it’s predecessors, which is the joy of veg tanned leather. Please read more about this at the bottom of this listing. All of the dyes used are low VOC environmentally-friendly, which are genuinely appreciated by the conscientious planet-aware consumer. The waxes used to provide a top level protection to the item are also natural materials. Note that the Snowbell is also now available in the tannery dyed leather 'Ebony' with black kip interior pockets. The Notebook covers, no matter which size you pick are fitted with 4 ELASTICS INSIDE, with a SPINE MOUNTED ELASTIC CLOSURE. Extra elastic will be enclosed so that if you want to add extra refills you may do so with the same colour. As with all the journal ranges from Meadowgate Leather, this cover is named after a tree - the Snowbell.
Wallet sections can be made either horizontal or vertical. The larger the cover, the more cards can be fitted. There are threee choices of rear pocket: Secretarial, Boarding Pass or Straight.
