Regular price £39.90 Sale

Our leather journals are designed to keep your journals/notebooks/diaries unharmed and in a stylish look. They come with two free Moleskine Notebooks and you may easily replace them once they're finished. 

We can personalise your item by hand-stamping your name, initials, or favourite words. You can get more information and add personalisation to your order here.


  • made from full-grain vegetable-tanned leather
  • made solely by hand-crafting processes (cut, punched, stitched, stamped, and burnished by hand)
  • Best fits with 14cm*9cm notebooks (of Moleskine, Field Notes, etc.).
  • carefully made by ourselves in our leather workshop in Edinburgh, Scotland


The reason we prefer full-grain vegetable-tanned leather is to make you an item that will be unique to you, that will age beautifully and develop a character, and that will be used for long years. Full-grain leather is the type of leather whose surface hasn't been altered at all. Because of this, it has natural markings (such as blemishes, branding, and stretch marks). However, this means it is the most strong and durable type of leather since it has not gone through any process (alterations). The natural markings on it are welcomed as unique characteristics rather than defects and the items made by full-grain leather are praised because of being one of a kind. Vegetable-tanned leather is processed using natural ingredients (such as tree bark) as opposed to chemicals. Hence, leathers produced using this process are not chemical-exposed and environmentally friendly. The colours of these leathers are more natural, warmer and richer and they age more beautifully. 


We choose to solely apply handcrafting processes and use hand-stitching because of which it takes more time to make our items compared to items made with machine-led processes. However, there are two important reasons that make us choose this harder and longer method of making. Firstly, hand-stitched leather items are much superior in strength and durability. Both the type of thread that is suitable for machine-stitching and the way stitches hold together makes the stitching more prone to breakings. The thread used in hand-stitching is thicker and hence stronger. In addition, the way stitches hold together makes it much less possible to break or loosen. Secondly, hand-stitching arguably provides a more aesthetic look. Although the aesthetic perception differs from person to person, most people find hand-stitching more beautiful because of the natural look and strong character of the stitches.

Because of the unique characteristics mentioned above (differences in natural tanning and hand-crafting processes), there may be slight variations in each item. This means your item will be unique to you and may slightly differ from the picture.

Beautiful Crafted Piece

I bought this as a gift for a friend and I have been very tempted to keep it for myself - beautifully crafted and well made. Very much worth the price and something you can feel will last for a very long time.

Additionally, great service and very prompt delivery!

Excellent Service

Great to get a personal service and such a lovely product - the journal is perfect and highly recommended!

Gorgeous field journal

The perfect field journal—easily fits in your work or travel bag and the price includes two Moleskin journals that you can swap out when filled up. From the photos, I couldn’t tell how the elastic band keeps it closed, but it’s really quite clever how they do it—the elastic just loops over it and the leather strip goes over the covers. That makes its look really sharp and helps make the elastic band from imprinting lines. A future version idea could be to use a skinny strip of leather that could wind around it two or three times.
I love the high-quality leather and workmanship! It’s a cut above others’ quality.
Love Workshop After Six’s leather goods! I’m such a fan, we have ordered them and they ship them here from across the Pond. Totally worth it!

Dear Jackson,
We can thank you enough for your kind words and for your endless support for our small business. If only world was full of customers like yourself. We loved the idea of leather strap and will definitely work on it.
Warm wishes,
Workshop After Six


This leather journal is perfect! Beautiful craftsmanship and I know I’ll get many, many years of use out of it. The packaging it came in was lovely, and I am happy with the speed of delivery and the personalized care and attention of the shop owners.
