Beutiful Unique Gift

I got this unique handmade leather journal for my friend as a gift on his birthday. He is a writer and I am so happy I made this choice. He loves the quality of the leather and the paper. I recommend it, recommend it, recommend it!

Quality Product

Purchased the Large Leather Pad Portfolio in Saddle for my realtor son for Christmas. Great product, well made. Will serve him well for years to come. Love the Saddle.

Well made

I bought this as a gift and I was pleased and impressed with the work and details. It didn't seem like you can replace the pages and that in my option is a downsize.

My cousin was happy about it and I look forward to hear what he thinks.

Thanks Rustic!


Thank you Caren for the great review. Great choice on the Writers log. We do craft this exact notebook in refillable option as well and in multiple sizes. Hope that helps next go round. Have a great day!
Nice Pen, doesn't write

The pen design is great. The problem is the ink does not flow properly. You literally have to write each stroke independently. There is no "ease of flow" when writing. I changed the ink cartridge twice. Sad really, because I have enjoyed everything else I've ever purchased from rustico. I will be sending it back.

Not the best purchase I've made

I was really attracted to this pen for the zodiac signs and the fact it's a metal pen. I like a pen with heft. It's a well-balanced pen but the nib is a mess...upon installing the cartridge, the pen writes very dry. Sadly, the pen rolled off the desk and dropped on the floor-the nib separated from the casing unit Ther is no way to get the threaded part out and the nib is separated from it. NEVER saw this happen to a pen before. I have a $64. dek ornament as that's all it's good for at this point. Stick to well known brads people. This was a turkey. A good looking turkey but a turkey none the less.

Sister loves it

Purchased as a Christmas gift for my sister and she's had nothing but great things to say about it.

Perfect for my Kindle Oasis

Purchased the Stowaway Large Leather Pouch in Ocean with personalization. Wanted a nice bag to keep my Kindle Oasis in. This pouch is perfect. Pouch fits my Oasis with cover like a glove. The pouch is well made and should last forever. I'm very pleased with this pouch.

Appreciate the review Jeannine! It will serve you and your tech gear great! Excited to hear how it wears and develops the more you use it.
Great Gift Idea

The On the Fly gift set was the perfect gift for my husband! The quality was good and the forms inside had just the right amount of information.

Love it!

Got this for my boyfriend for christmas, he is obsessed with fishing and usually uses a plain notebook as a little journal, so I was so excited to find this!! Great quality. Very happy.

Love it!!

Bought one as a gift for my DIL and one as a gift for me! I put mine on the day I received it and it’s been on my wrist ever since. The leather is soft and the color is great. Love the buckle ... heck, I love the whole thing. Rustico crafts amazing products.

Thanks for the great review Laurie! We're so glad to hear you like it as much as we do!!

I bought this as a gift for my husband. He really likes it. The bracelet is well made. We have received a few items from Rustico and have always been pleased with their products.

I’m very disappointed in my delivery of weeks apart of my delivery of my albums!

I would not recommend this company!

Love them.

I have purchased 3 total. One for myself and two as gifts. I have had mine for some time and it is a great little refillable notebook. All of us really love them. Durable and compact.

Durable and compact indeed! Thank you for the great review Christopher, you've got good taste. Never let another great idea escape you with this pocket journal by your side.!!
Hunting Log

This was a gift for my son and he loved it. He took pictures to share with his hunting buddies and immediately began to record his hunts. The size was perfect and the quality was excellent.

Lil leather book

Love this product! Exquisite quality craftsmanship. Perfect size. Thank youp


I was a bit disappointed in the product.


Stunning worksmanship, love the leather. Got this a Christmas present for myself and couldn't be happier. Had beeen looking for a refillable leather journal but all others were of cheap quality and the prices were outrageous. Can't wait to fill this up with recounting of adevntures.


This was as beautiful as the picture looked! Thank you!

Top quality

I would highly recommend this product. Very satisfied.

Great notebook

Beautiful and of very good quality. I'm very happy with it.

Last Minute Christmas Gift was a Hit!

Love the personalization option, the quality is amazing. That leather smell!! I know my husband really liked as I saw him logging his fasted coyote set & harvest ever. So happy he had it to record in! Can't wait to give the other one to my elk hunting dad.

Wine log

Beautiful! Thank you!

Thank you for believing in us Laura, excited for you to log your favorite glasses of wine. We'll cheers to that. Take care.

I bought this because I really love great artisan leather products. I wanted a leather folder that wraps around my inserts, and has pockets you slide the insert(s) in, as I never use the elastics in a regular Travelers Notebook. So this is perfect.

I ordered saddle, which is just the rustic look that I wanted, I'm sure it'll agree gracefully. The leather is wonderfully soft.

The only downside is that it only holds notebooks up to 8 inch, a quarter inch short of standard A5 size, which would have been much more convenient. But I knew that, so it's ok. Plus, I ordered the new bullet journal folder that holds 8.25 inch, so more goodness for me :-).

Great for the Competitive Golf Lover!

This Refillable Leather Golf Log and refills were a birthday gift for an avid golfer that is UBER competitive! All the scores and other pertinent information are able to be kept in one log. I had it personalized and it was well loved! The craftsmanship and leather are of great quality and the deep rich color is beautiful!

Thank you Diva for the greqt review! The refillable golf log will serve them well. Made for endless rounds of golf! Thanks again for choosing handmade.

Bought this for our daughter for Christmas. She loves it. It is a beautiful, good quality leather and a perfect size. I am sure she will be enjoying it for many years. I would definitely recommend Rustico to people.

We're so glad to hear you like it as much as we do Ronald! Thanks for the great review!!
Wonderful craftsmanship

Bought my 6th or 7th journal from Rustico. Love it! High quality with all their products! Love my new belt from them too!

We appreciate the amazing review David. Your new Pisces notebook will serve you well. Thanks for your patronage!
Exactly what I was looking for

Had gotten if of these for free through a Copenhagen promotion and had it for years before losing it. I got a different brand wallet and just couldn’t get use to it. Had to come get another one and it’s just as good quality as the first one if not better. Hopefully I won’t lose this one but if I do I’ll likely be back for another one.

rustico review

my husband loves it. the leather has so much personality

Chrono leather watch band

My husband loves this watch band, he was looking for a good quality leather watch band and this was it!

Very nice

Great quality and the boyfriend loved it. Said it was comfortable and had plenty of room for what he needs. I also got his name engraved on it which he loved as well. Can't beat the price with the quality you get.

Thank you Hailee for the great review, we're happy to hear your boyfriend loved the wallet. It'll serve him well. Thanks for choosing handmade!
Jury is still out.

I like to break in a product like this before I give it a full on review. I just got it 12/25/17. First blush is great leather cover and will break in to look great over time. Like the size too. Not sure how elastic closure will hold up over time though. Seems a little chintzy for the price of the journal. I'm being hard on this because that's just me. I have bought products from another company that sells bombproof high quality products. I was expecting the same from Rustico and it just doesn't measure up so far especially at the price point of almost $40.00. I also purchased the copper bottle and would give that a 3.5 star rating. Love the look and feel. The rubber gasket at top of bottle is very cheap and bulges out if you tighten it one quarter turn too much. I may swap out gasket for a more durable one. Again I like to bring products on adventures to be able to truly give a review. Maybe I'll up the rating once I live with them for a bit on the road. Here's to outstanding adventures in 2018 and bringing Rustico with me!

Very disappointed

After waiting for delivery which was supposed to be delivered express shipping, I received wrong item. I will no longer order from Rustico.

Best Christmas Gift Ever

My boyfriend is hunting obsessed and was extremely happy with the quality of leather, the style of the log (specifically the closure) and the concept of the log/journal as a present. It was that present that he kept going back to and thanking me telling me how excited he was to use it. Overall, he is happy with the leather but was disappointed in the preprinted pages. He wanted more blank space to write about his hunt and things he saw, less space taken for logging what he brought home that hunt. His words wer “a good hunter respects the animal and lets a lot of animals walk by him before he takes the life of one” so for him the pages aren’t quite right. He also felt there aren’t enough pages. Like I said before, the leather product is great... my boyfriend even said “when you get me another one next year just get a journal with blank pages” so that’s his way of saying it’s a great thing since he’s already wanting another one!

Thank you for the incredible review Rebecca! We're delighted to hear how much you like the Hunting Log. We appreciate the feedback and we'll pass it onto our product development team. We're always looking to improve. You can't go wrong with a blank journal, let us know if you need help picking out the right one! Cheers.
Disappointed : /

Purchased this as a gift....the bracelet is beautiful. Had it monogrammed but it got lost next to the Rustico logo! The company logo overpowered the intials. I was told by customer service it would fit the average male wrist. Unfortunately it is a little snug.


Gave this as a gift and they absolutely loved it. Using it daily! Truly makes the perfect gift. I thought it was going to be a little larger but the size is very feng shui and not too cumbersome. Great quality!

Beyond Amazing

This is my go-to journal. It is so aesthetically pleasing. Looking at the excellent quality of exterior and interior is what pleases me the most. My leather has worn out very well and looks even more pleasing. My next purchase will be in Buckskin, just so I can see the "wearing out" I'm giving it. Such an awesome company!

Thanks for the great review Dustyn! Great selection on the Observer, it will only get better looking with time and use too!! Excited for your next item in Buckskin, let us know if you need help picking out an item.
Audition binder

I bought this for my son to use for his music as an audition binder. Very good quality. I did expect binder to be leather not a binder with a leather cover. Also would have liked engraving to be a bit bigger.

PARLEY Leather journal

Very pleased. My daughter was happy with it.

Wonderful Gift

Beautiful leather, inscription turned out wonderful, just an overall perfect gift. My boyfriend loved it!!!

I'm in love

My Aunt bought it for me as a memorial journal for my beloved dog, Jenna. It is absolutely stunning. The quality is amazing and the color is even better than expected. Thank you so much. Your customer service is also superb.

She loved it!

Purchased for my girlfriend of 8 years and she uses it everyday! Will purchase more items in the future!

Great choice Mitchell, so glad to hear she loves it. Enjoy!!
Excellent Product

My daughter is using this as her guest book for her wedding and plans to add pages to attach guest polaroid pictures in. I think this will work great. Prompt deliver also.

Excellent Quality

I ordered this as a gift for my daughter. The quality is excellent and the personalization is perfect! It's a gift that will last a lifetime, and she is thrilled with the gift!

Great Quality

Worth the price. I'm expecting to have this bag for a long time. Proud to own it. You will be too. By the way, this company is both customer & quality oriented. You will enjoy deal with them.

Great gift!

I bought this as a gift for my husband who's mentioned that he really wants to start keeping track of more information when he's out fishing, so this was absolutely perfect. Beautiful quality, would make a great keepsake.

Thanks Mallory for the striking review, we're so thrilled to hear how happy you are with the the fishing log. It will serve your husband well!!


Great gift

I bought this journal for a family member and I was impressed with the quality, and quick shipping around the holidays. I would use this company again.
