The Notebook: Surplus leather - Cognac - A5
Keeper of ideas, dreams, scribbles, and mind-clutter, the leather Notebook is created with changeable paper inside. The cover is handcrafted from surplus leather and meant to last forever.
This Notebook pays homage to August Sandgren’s heritage of book binding. It can hold all your ideas, scribbles, and mind-clutter. Meant to last forever, this leather Notebook is created with changeable paper inside. It comes with the first paper notebook inside.
Our first venture away from boxes, the Notebooks were first made from left-over leathers that we had in stock, and we created it to use our left-overs and because we needed a beautiful storage object for our best ideas. Today, we continue making The Notebook in surplus leather from our own and other’s production.
This Notebook is cognac and made from exquisite surplus aniline leather from Sorensen Leather. It also comes in other neutral colours like grey and black. The nuances may vary from the images, depending on the surplus materials available, it can be a bit lighter or darker. That’s one of the many charms of surplus materials.
