New Leathers in Limited Quanties for albums, journals and more

Thursday, February 14th, 2019

New Leathers are HERE and we are so excited about the new leather we recently launched in our shop. We typically shy away from adventurous colors, not because we don’t like them, but simply from a buisness standpoint you need to be strategic about these things. A lot of work and even more time goes into sourcing just the right materials for our products.

Leather is durable and stands the test of time, but it is also a natural rescource, therefore, limited and expensive. It’s not like you can just walk into any old craft store or fabric shop for samples.

This past summer, Courtney (boss lady) attended a leather tradeshow in NYC to gather leather samples and meet new leather vendors from around the Globe. Coming home with new leathers samples is fun but also just the begining of the process. Before purchasing leather, we need to decide which product the leather will be for, what does the thickness of the leather need to be for said product, how the texture of the leather will play into the design of the product and lastly, which color(s) will go best with our brand/line and work well on the product. After all that, THEN, we can place our order. If the leather is coming from say, Italy- this whole process begining to end can take a few months before we ever have the leather hide in our hands.

So if you’ve seen our catch phrase ” Bound With Love” – this is what we mean and you can know that our books truly are handmade and bound with lots of love. A lot of thought + care goes into each and every step in the process of making our prodcuts.

The coolest part has to be seeing it go from hide – to product – to a book a customer buys and fills with their precious memories!

 

Because these leathers a limited, don’t hesitate on ordering because once they are gone, they are gone for good! Currently, we have 4 new leathers listed Pale Blue, Teal Green, Navy Blue and Lavender Fog with one more color coming later (hint: think pantone color of the year 2019). 

 

Theses leathers are avaible as colorful leather brag books and Colorful Leather Journals for writing.
