The Dark Forest Leather Folio from Meadowgate Leather comes in a wide range of sizes and can even be made to fit your notebook, just send me message and we can talk about it. As it is,there are a number of standard notebook sizes catered for already, such as the Leuchtturm 1917 & Pocket, Midori sizes, and Hobonichi Weeks & Techno. See dimensions below. 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 (unless you would rather have it left off, in which case, let me know before I make it for you). Being a folio, as default, there would be no suspension elastics to hold any notebook refills, however, if you would rather have them in, let me know. Some prefer to have an elastic closure loop to wrap around the folio, whereas other prefer not to have one. As default it comes without - just let me know if you want one. You can also choose the colour of the elastics, as well as the thread used to sew the pockets on. The stitching is all by hand, using the two-needle saddle stitch method (very strong!). The internal pockets are straight cut (this is better for holding the notebook in). You can choose which leather to use for the Internal pockets. The choices are the Dark Forest leather (ie same as the outside), Undyed Kip (a thinner white/cream leather which over time will begin to turn a tan colour), or Brown or Black kip (a thinner leather which is tannery dyed).

I recently purchased two Dark Forest folios, and they are wonderful, quality leather products. I will definitely come back for more.This customer is very happy!

Mike created an absolutely beautiful custom notebook for me. I needed an odd size and he was so helpful and accommodating. Probably one of my best experiences on etsy with a seller. Mike was such a pleasure to work with. I look forward to purchasing more TNs. The dark forest leather was absolutely beautiful.

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

Perfect I love Mikes work. My hobonichi weeks fits perfectly

I ordered the A5 version of the cover to use it with my Rhodia Goalbook. I love the quality of the cover. It looks and feels really great! Maybe I'll order another smaller sized cover in the future :)
