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.

T (Staten Island, US)
So handsomely made

I bought this for my son as he is reaching his last year of high school. The stitching is flawless. The condition of the leather is so fine and immaculate. My son loves it so much. I had it personalized. Just the look of the journal is spectacular. The smell of the quality of the leather is appealing. And looking at it further, I can definitely see the attention and dedication of making something so stunning and marvelous. He loves it. I love that he loves it. So because I am so pressed with Rustico, I bought a journal for myself too.

Sara (Los Angeles, US)
Beautiful, professional look and sturdy build!

I absolutely love this cover. I use moleskine notebooks exclusively at work for note taking and this lets me bring all the other things (print outs, pens, cards, some cash, etc) to my meetings and around the office without looking like a hoarder! As a note, I use the “expanded” moleskines and they fit perfectly in this cover as well. It’s extremely sturdy, stitching is beautifully done. This is my second (and definitely not the last) purchase from Rustico, the first having been the large 3 ring binder. I get compliments on these pieces at work all the time.

William Dixon (Chicago, US)

Overall, it's a good product, but the biggest let down is that the pockets are the correct size to hold loose pages that are the same size as a 5"x8.25" moleskine page. A little bit of a let down.

Aubrey (University Place, US)

I’ve ordered multiple Rustico journals as gifts and have loved every single one. I have used moleskin journals for years and didn’t want to give it up but also wanted a cover for it. I’ve used the rustico journals before and loved them but I’m so thankful to have cover for my moleskin. It makes it feel personal and it is so beautiful. Well crafted art that will last.

Lee Hartz (Hilton Head Island, US)
Gift for Dad

I purchased the beautiful notebook cover for my Dad after he saw and loved my Rustico planner. He uses moleskin journals constantly and this was a way add a make that feel more personal and to add a touch of storage for receipts and train tickets.
