The Dark Forest Leather Journal Cover from Meadowgate Leather comes in a wide range of sizes (see below for the detail).  The leather (approx 1.8mm thick) is a dark brown which is quite supple and includes some 'pull-up', which means it is intended to achieve a 'worn in' look. It will accept scuffs, bends and scratches to achieve a charming antique effect.  I hand make every journal cover with care and attention and to show my pride in my work, each of the Dark Forest journal covers is stamped with my maker's mark on the back. There will be four suspension elastics to hold your notebook refills. Let me know if you would like a particular elastic colour.

  1. Sizes: A7, Passport, Pocket, A6, Personal, B6 (ISO&JIS), Regular, Cahier, Slim, A5, B5. Check your size.
  2. Colour: Available in all dye colours as shown on the colour chart
  3. Elastics: 4 Suspension elastics, 1 Closure loop.
  4. Edge Finish: As-dyed.

Absolutely stunning craftmanship. Beautifully executed all my customization requests. Thank you.

I absolutely love my beautiful Dark Forest B6 TN from Meadowgate Leather! Mike's craftsmanship is second to none! The leather quality is amazing and the stitching add-on really makes it a special piece! I would definitely recommend this seller! Thank you Mike!

I adore my new journal cover. I couldn't ask for more. This has been in daily use from the moment it arrived and I love the look, the feel, the smell of it. Mike was so helpful, replying to my questions really quickly, and thoroughly. Nothing was too much trouble. I wanted a leather that would wear and age, taking on all the knocks and scratches life throws at it, and this leather does not disappoint. Thank you Mike for ensuring I made the right choice and for a product that I will love for a long time to come.

An A6 version of this lovely cover. I kept trying to find a handbag with more room so I could carry the A5 one that I love. The easy option was just to get a smaller notebook for the bits and pieces that I like to keep with me. Ordinary shop bought A6 notebooks fit perfectly inside this beautifully crafted cover. I’ve never had any problem with them and think they’re definitely worth every penny (the only problem is convincing my husband it was in the back of the wardrobe all this time!)

This is the second time I have purchased from meadowgate leather and again it did not disappoint. Great quality product.

The cover will be made by default to my standard width - let me know if you want it wider.
A leather tag is fitted to the closure elastic - I can stamp your name or other wording (up to about 12 characters) free of charge - just let me know.
