    • 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.

Great Products

Great products with quickly delivery. The quality of Rustico’s products are excellent.

Beautiful. Husband loves it.

I gave this leather notebook to my husband for our one year anniversary “paper” present. He loves it.


Can definitely recommend. Nice old vintage feels to everything from rustico. Would definitely buy something else sometime.

Almost perfect

The cover is exactly what I wanted. The ocean color is one of the best blue leathers I've seen. The whole thing is breaking in and wearing nicely over the couple months I've had it. The paper in the refill is very nice. Low see through and no bleed with a medium nib fountain pen and just enough tooth to be pleasant and not slick. The only thing I would change is to a thicker cardboard for the refill covers. The leather starts pretty tight and the covers slide a bit, so they don't slide back in easily and I've already got serious creasing and starting tears in the refill cover. Small issue in the scheme of things, but worth noting. I'm sure the cover will break in some and this will get better based on my experience with rustico's leather, but still worth knowing in advance.


Absolutely loved this notebook. The quality is outstanding.
