Leather: All leather is purchased from tanners in the US. The leather used is Top Grain Cowhide leather and, in most cases, is thicker than what others use. Working with thicker leather makes production more difficult, but the end result is a product that is very durable and which will not rip or tear with use and age. 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 journal 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 your leather journal looking great, occasionally apply some leather conditioner and keep it out of the direct sunlight for long periods of time. Enjoy!
Paper: 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.

The most beautiful leather book! The quality is outstanding. But what separates this company from the rest is the personal contact with the owner to ensure you are getting what you want. I purchased this book for my husband for a Christmas present and had his grandparents actual handwriting engraved on the cover. Both of his grandparents had passed away this year and I was thinking of a heartfelt gift. When I came upon this website I chatted live with the owner and not only did he exceed my expectations but he gave me a couple of versions to choose from. In the end it was at little extra cost to do this and the end result was amazing! I highly recommend Heartwood Gifts to anyone and everyone and if I could rate them a 10 I would give them an 11.
