    • 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.

The book is beautiful but the add on filler paper that came up after adding to cart did not fit properly at all. I should’ve checked the measurements, be sure to do the same!


Navigator Leather Notebook

Always Satisfied.

Got my third Navigator in Dark Brown (the other two are Sadle and Ocean). I already own a composition notebook cover in Dark Brown and I really love the patina that's developed. I love the size of the Navigator and can't wait to break this one in. Going to use it as my travel journal for Prague.

Way to use our items to record your journey and leave your mark! That is exactly what they're for :)
Love it!

Excellent quality, it was personalized and shipped within a day. Great idea for a gift or for yourself!

Thick leather!

The leather is thick and I like it because I think it will last a long time and age well. The blue shade is understated and is a good match for my style. It fits the Moleskine perfectly. I'm looking for a good pen holder to attach in some way so my pen/pencil is secure.
