This burgundy leather journal is cow leather that has been embossed to look like Ostrich leather. The 6in x 4.5in size is perfect for a purse or backpack.
There are 120 pages (240 if you count front and back) of white 80lb paper that has a good tooth for writing or sketching. The paper is blank.
The pages have been hand folded, pressed and then divided into 6 signatures. The signatures were hand sewn into the leather with burgundy waxed Irish bookbinding thread. The use of the long-stitch bookbinding method gives the journal fantastic binding strength as well as the ability to open completely flat so every inch of paper can be used.
The wrap-around cover keeps the paper safe and a long light brown cord holds everything together. The bookmark was sewn to the cover and features a Live Laugh Love charm.
