How could an Oak or Acorn Notebook get any better? Make it a DOUBLE ACORN!  Instead of just the one pocket of the Acorn, the Double Acorn has customisable pockets in both the Front and the Back! It also comes with all-round EDGE-STITCHING as standard! The stitching is all by hand, stitch by stitch, the old way – no machines involved, just hand, eye, needle and thread. The Double Acorn retains all the strengths of the Oak and the Acorn – the robust leather, the dyed and burnished edges, the wide selection of dyes which will be applied, by hand to both the outside and the inside of your cover (just let me know if you want the inside left natural) The pockets has been carefully cut and dyed by hand and hand-stitched onto the cover with the best waxed-polyester thread. You can even specify the shape of the pocket (see photo of choices available above).  The cover and the pocket are available in a wide variety of colours.  As with my other ranges, you are able to specify a multitude of options to personalise your journal cover. It is hand-crafted, from the finest eco-friendly vegetable tanned leathers. The leather used is real genuine full-grain, the most sought after section of leather. Most 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. All the journal covers, no matter which size you pick will come with 4 ELASTICS INSIDE, with a SPINE MOUNTED ELASTIC CLOSURE. Extra elastic will be enclosed so that if you want to loop in extra refills you may do so with the same colour.

There are threee choices of rear pocket: Secretarial, Boarding Pass or Straight. Feel free to mix and match!

  1. Sizes: A7, Passport, Pocket, A6, Personal, B6 (ISO&JIS), Regular, Cahier, Slim, A5, B5. Check your size.

Thrilled with my new notebook cover. I am very pleased with the colours which I deliberated on for a while - timber with cream stitching and cerise elastic. I’m using this as an A5 notebook cover for work and with the internal pockets to slot it in it and keep other bits in, it works perfectly. Love that I was able to personalise the small details to my requirements. Thank you so much.

I'm so pleased with my A5 'Double Acorn' - thanks Mike! I'm currently using it with a mixture of homemade junk journal inserts and normal A5 notebooks. I really liked being able to customise my order - especially being able to get the 'extreme' overhang as I like to pack my journals full of stuff! My order was delivered as expected, no problems at all. I would definitely recommend this as a lovely (and practical) gift or as a nice treat for yourself.

To echo the thousands of others who have been delighted by their item crafted by the hands of Mike I am no different! Mike was very accommodating of all my requested tweaks and where ever I left the call to him made great ones.

It is more perfect than I imagined. The shipping was fast and the craftsmanship was impeccable. My hobonichi looks great in it's new home. I will be ordering from here again. Highly recommend this seller.

What can I say!? I am utterly stunned at how amazing Mike’s work is! I had a few queries before I went ahead and ordered my TN, and Mike was so polite and so helpful with his response. I am completely in love with my new TN! I have been journaling every day since I received it and it’s such a joy to take everywhere I go! And it smells so good, too! If you’re looking for a quality TN, then Meadowgate Leather is DEFINITELY the place to go! I will be back again!
