    • Leather Care

    • Chemicals will weaken the leather over time. Be patient. Its ruggedness will grow in character with you.
    • Don't be afraid of a scuff. Lick your finger. Rub it in. The oils from your skin shape the patina's look over time. So go ahead. Handle it!
    • Avoid leaving leather for extended periods of time in direct sunlight or extreme heat. We recommend Rustico's Custom Designed Leather Cleaner for additional leather cleaning and conditioning.

Photo album extraordinaire

We found this album in a little shop in Old Salem, NC and immediately bought it hoping it would house our “yearbook” photos that we had yet to find a good book for. I’m happy to say it far exceeded our expectations and will be what we use for our family “yearbook” for as long as this company keeps going! It’s expertly made, expands beautifully to house all of our photos, and is just plain gorgeous. We can fit two years worth of words and photos in one album and we just bought our second one for the next two years. Love everything about it and would highly recommend. Also- that leather smell is amazing :)

Thank you for leaving such a sweet review Courtney! We're so happy to hear that you and your family have enjoyed the album, and hope it serves you well for years to come. Thanks again!
Great Item

We purchased the Big Leather Album for our Daughters Wedding guest book!
It was used for a photobooth guest book! Not only does she love the Personal engraving, but the Album looks so very nice on her table for display.

Birthday gift for sister

Bought this for my sisters bday...she is obsessed with it. Thought it was a Little pricey for a journal but she absolutely loves it! She is very spiritual and writes all her best poems and thoughts on it


Love the album overall. Things that could be improved include color accuracy, engraving clarity and sturdiness of strap.

Awesome product!

This leather journal far exceeded my expectations. We love it!
