The leather Messenger Journal is a unique and popular design which fits right at home with our other leather hand sewn journals. If you are a serious writer that needs a blank canvas for endless ideas, this is the journal for you. It is just one step up with space and pages from our Traveler's Leather Journal which is a Rustico classic! It also features an extended flap and double wrap strap.
The Messenger Leather Journal contains 160 rough cut blank pages, which are hand sewn into top grain leather. It measures 7" by 9" in size and comes with a unique double wrap closure.
As an artisan-crafted product, this item is made from raw top-grain cowhide, which has remained untouched before tanning. Any veins, scaring from wounds the animal sustained from other animals, or scratches from rubbing up against rocks, barbed wire, trees, or buildings will remain on the finished product. This is in contrast to the normal massed produced leather products common in commercial stores where there has been much processing to make the final product as smooth and unflawed as possible. So go ahead, handle it. Don't be afraid of a scuff. Lick your finger. Rub it off. The oils from your skin shape the patina over time. To keep it looking great, occasionally apply some leather conditioner and keep it out of the direct sunlight for long periods of time.
The paper used is a thick-weight hand-torn deckled edge paper. In an effort to reduce their carbon footprint, Rustico uses either post consumer recycled paper or a cotton rag blended paper, both of which are excellent for all types of writing or drawing.
You also have the option to personalize this item with your name, a special date, or inscribe it as a personalized gift for a friend! Personalizations are laser engraved on the top middle, bottom right or left corner of the cover, whichever is most suitable.
