Care Instructions

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 Cleanerfor additional leather cleaning and conditioning.

Our favorite!

My husband has many of these. As soon as he fills up one, I order another. The leather is beautiful and he has enjoyed having the pocket in the back and a loop for a pen. We will definitely continue to order these!


I have loved Rustico products. I met Isaac on a fishing trip and he handed me a fishing journal. I have enjoyed Rustico products ever since. Very cool way to take your adventures to the next level remembering the journeys. Thanks Isaac

Good Book Journal Series Pro

I ordered this journal as a gift and could not be more pleased with how it came out. I had something engraved and did the natural leather color. I needed assist with determine which leather color as well as additional help with finding photos of what the personalization would look like. A representative was very helpful and the personalization was perfect.

Better Than Expected

My personalized notebook blew me away. I got to personalize it with my name and a motto that I care about. Not only did the material blow me away as it was high quality, but the fact that I also got a lined guide to help me write straight on the pages was just the finishing touch. THANK YOU!

Perfect Maker’s Journal

As a maker (quilter/knitter/pattern designer) I wanted a journal to record my projects. I knew that whatever I chose to do this, it needed to be a high quality in order for me to stick with it & it is 100% that. The paper is strong enough to glue fabric/yarn swatches to & great for sketching & journaling. And the closure will be great later as the pages are filled. Love it!
