    • 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.

Future heirloom

I bought this album to make a book with old black and white family photos and mementos, and this album couldn't have been more perfect. It is beautifully crafted, and its quality will last generations for my family. I'm very happy with this purchase.

Not just any photo journal

This photo album is exactly as described. It is finely crafted. The leather is soft and pliable, yet heavy enough to last for many years of use. It makes a beautiful gift.

Gift for a Friend

Ecstatically received by my friend. Unexpected and extremely perfect. Very well made and exactly as envisioned. Thanks.

Good Leather, Disappointing Stock and Attention to Detail

I recently purchased the Big Idea Leather Journal with personalization ($120). The quality of the leather cover was very good. The binding was aesthetically pleasing, and the personalization was modest and tasteful. However, the stock's weight isn't durable enough to realistically support the weight of pictures on both sides of the page without bowing flimsily. This journal is further less suited to act as a scrap book. Something else I found disappointing was that two full pages were not sewn into the binding and fell out as soon as I took the journal out of its packaging. Truly, I felt like I did not get my money's worth by purchasing this product.
