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.

I was looking for a reasonably priced, personalizable, quality leather journal and I found exactly that at Heartwood gifts. They were very willing to work with me to make it “just right,” even though I asked to see different options several times. It also arrived much sooner than I expected even though it shipped from Canada and I’m in the US. Hope to make good use of this journal for many years to come! Definitely would recommend.
I can't say enough about every aspect of this journal. I contacted Heartwood to make sure the paper would work with my fountain pen (avoiding massive feathering). I received a reply quickly and placed my order immediately. I took advantage of the free laser personalization. My journal arrived very quickly and, to be completely honest, looked and felt SO MUCH BETTER than the photos (and it already looked great there). The quality of the leather and the paper is exceptional. There was even a handwritten note on the packing slip that came in the box. I'm not sure what will be written in this journal, but I have a feeling it will be (for me) something wonderful. I look forward to another one once this one is filled up.
This turned out to be the perfect gift for my Dad! The quality and feel are exceptional
Perfect. Exactly what I was looking for and the quality didn't disappoint!
I found here the perfect gift that I was looking for! It's beautiful, very good quality and the ultimate book that I was dreaming of. I could not have found anything better! And the customer service was amazing!
