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.

The 3 5x8 journal replacement inserts look nothing like those that came with the journal nor the photo on the order page. Glued binding , no middle fold open where elastic band is to hold. Misrepresentation. I’d send back but traveling soon and need. Sorry 😔

Wrote on the first page and was hooked.

If you’re a “paper” person in this day and age, then you know how important it is to have something to write in that has paper that’s smooth yet sturdy. That’s Rustico paper. I used Moleskine 5x8 notebooks for years because they were recommended by a fellow “paper” friend. I had purchased from Rustico a few times for gifts so I thought I’d see what they had for similar products.

When I bought the Premium Insert 09 3-pack, it was mainly for its value. I planned to just use it as a bullet journal / habit tracker, but now I’m using the 3-pack for practically anything I can think of. And I’m going to buy more. The paper is phenomenal; happily takes to regular ball-point or my uniPin ink pens (02 and 04). My uniPin pens *just barely* peek through the other side of the page, too — that’s huge. The insert itself is decently sturdy so I use it without a cover.

If you enjoy using paper to capture thoughts, to-do lists, habits, goals…you’ll appreciate this product. I’m officially making the move from Moleskine to Rustico inserts.

The real deal

Very few companies that make quality goods at a fair price are left in this world, but Rustico is one of them.

Not like the old ones

The old inserts were string bound and laid flat. These are glue bound and you have to fold over each page, which is a pain. Because the dimensions are a little unique, the Rustico inserts are the only ones that really work, otherwise I ould use another manufacturer.
