Luxury shell cordovan A5 notebook cover inspired by vintage pieces from our collection.
This specific colour looks particularly nice on shell cordovan, in fact it is so popular that the colour is sometimes called "cordovan", rather than burgundy.
Shell cordovan has exceptional qualities, but is hard to source and has to go through a very complicated and slow tanning process. This makes it one of the most expensive, rarest and therefore exclusive leathers on the market.
Cordovan is exceptionally durable, we source ours from a top Japanese tannery. The shiny, slightly transparent finish has incredible colour depth and nuances.
The fact that this notebook cover is made from finest shell cordovan on both the outside and inside makes it truly exceptional. Cordovan notebook covers are rare in general and usually finished in cowhide on the inside to keep the price "reasonable".
The cover includes oversized card slots for cards and tickets, a pen loop sized for fountain pens, strap closure to keep the contents secure and will fit Hobonichi Cousin, Midori MD and most other A5 size notebooks.
Feel free to slip slim A5, B6, A5, folded A4 or any document or notebook A5 size or smaller in the 2 side pockets, there's lots of space!
Finest shell cordovan that will age beautifully and feels fantastic in use. The natural version will darken progressively with repeated exposure to light.
Handmade in Japan by skilled craftsmen.
This notebook cover is designed to be practical and a joy to use for many years, whether you use it for work, travel or journaling.
