The WILLOW Traveller's Notebooks range is flexible, resilient and lightweight. It will protect your journal when closed and provide an open level surface when you need to write. The design of the Willow is very similar to the Oak range, but instead of being made of very thick leather, the Willow cover is made from medium thickness vegetable tanned leather (approx 1.8mm-2.4mm), meaning that it has so many of the qualities of my other notebook covers, but by design is able to be much more flexible. The leather used is, of course, real, genuine full-grain, the most sought after section of leather.  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. It is hand-crafted, from the finest eco-friendly materials, to your own specifications. As with all my products, no sewing machines are used, no electric cutters or stamping machines are used, just plain old muscle power, skill and knowledge. All of the dyes used are low VOC environmentally-friendly, which are genuinely appreciated by the conscientious planet-aware consumer.  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 add extra refills you may do so with the same colour. * I may use a slightly different leather dependent on the colour you choose, as some leathers seem to take blues/greens/yellows much better than others, just so you are aware if you order two (I should be so lucky ;-)) ) they will be made from the best leather for the colour chosen.
