With this kit, you can create your own 5" × 8 3/4" traveller's-style notebook. The sturdy two-tone protective leather sleeve holds a paper-bound notebook, secured with an elastic spine band so it’s easy to remove and replace the notebook when it’s filled. The kit includes pre-cut leather pieces with punched stitch holes, as well as two needles, waxed thread, elastics, string closures and detailed instructions.

Supplied by renowned Italian tanneries, the vegetable-tanned and dyed leather is durable yet supple. Easy to work with, it wears well and ages to a rich, deep patina through long use. Aside from pliers and a small amount of glue to finish the thread end, nothing else is required. One 64-page notebook is included; replacements are available separately (or you can use any 4 1/4" × 8 1/4" notebook).

Difficulty rating: 4/5. Approximate completion time for a beginner: 3 hours.
