    • 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.

Switchback Leather Notebook

Rustico provides soft durable leather that only gets better with wear and tear. Their customer service is the best I’ve dealt with. You do not need to look any further than Rustico for your leather goods. This is not the only purchase of mine from them and I look forward to many more. Their products are design to be passed from one generation to the next!!!

Thank you for such a kind review Christian! We look forward to continuing to business with you. We hope that your Switchback serves you well for years to come!

Just what I wanted to give. Smelled and felt like a journal for a life time on memories.

Amazing Notebook

I have truly enjoyed the individuality and craftsmanship of the notebooks. I have already recommended to friends who have in turn ordered their own. My only question was when shown by my colleagues who recommended your notebooks, theirs came with very nice tote bags, while mine did not. This is however a minor thing and would not affect my decision to look toward your company for future order. Again, this is a beautiful product with an individual look and feel.

Perfect now -

Wait till you see it in 10 years - still perfect!

Great Experience

Very nice and friendly. The product was exactly what I was looking for. They even corrected a mistake I made for refills. Will recommend and buy from them again.
