    • 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.

Switchback Leather Notebook


High quality products have ordered multiple items and continue to. Make great gifts and hold up very well

Absolutely beautiful craftsmanship!

This is my first time ordering from Rustico. I ordered 2 of the Switchback leather notebooks. The are absolutely beautiful. They are well worth the money I paid for them. They each came in a canvas drawstring bag. The blank note pads are high quality. The service was fast and professional. I will be ordering from them again and soon.

Very good quality

Not the color I wanted. The color I ordered came out too brown rather than a reddish color as seen online. I asked for Burgundy and their is nothing burgundy about it. All brown.
