    • 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.

Excellent product!

The composition cover is so well made! The delivery of the item was very fast considering it was personalized. The level of customer service is amazing!


I hope that anyone who reads this review will take it to heart. Two years ago my twin sister passed suddenly. A few times i tried journaling my feelings, however; it was to soon. When i started my search for a journal, i knew it had to be leather, NOT the nasty kind sold just about everywhere, but rich, thick, glorious leather. We spent many years training and showing American Quarter Horses so we know leather!
When the pkg arrived, honestly, my hands started shaking. When i tore open the mailer, the tears started as the smell of leather hit me. Memories of such wonderful adventures and the sound of saddle leather creaking. I am not going to write about Lori, i am going to write to her.
Thank you for making a beautiful place for my words, for the superior master craftsmanship of our journal, and for inspiring me to write.

Large Leather Composition Cover with Buckle

This is a beautiful cover for my standard, "composition notebooks." I am very please with the craftsmanship and quality of the leather.

The perfect college graduation gift

I bought two of these notebooks for my friend whose son's were going into Navy Flight School. They both loved them and said this was a perfect gift for writing down all the things they will need to know during their training. Great gift, would buy again!

Anniversary Gift Solution

My husband is interested in astronomy so I wanted to get him a leather bound book for his notes for our 14th wedding anniversary. I couldn't find one that I thought was substantial enough to last for years, so I ordered this leather portfolio in Ocean Blue. Gorgeous. It's heavy, masculine, well made and smells wonderful. I could not be happier and the customer service was professional, prompt and friendly. (I noticed that Rustico has speciality products for golfers, fishermen and travelers...maybe a special portfolio for Astronomy in the future!) The canvas bag was a nice surprise. Husband was delighted and impressed.

Hey Debra! Thank you for your positively glowing review! We are so glad the executive works for your husbands astronomy, what a cool hobby and unique way to leave a mark!
