The quality of the binder is excellent! Very happy with this purchase.


beautiful leather journal.


This is a keepsake quality journal. I have 2 and have given several as gifts. Leather is beautiful and the journals I bought are refillable so they will last a lifetime. Highly recommend to anyone who wants something useful and different.

Love it!!


This planner is gorgeous and so well created. Smells devine and made a great gift for the launching of a new business in awesome Detroit!! Thanks




My son is moving to Germany and I bought the New Orleans journal cover so he'll think of home every time he writes. The craftsmanship is amazing and I couldn't be more pleased. I especially like the design because you can replace the inside journal making sure the cover will be used for years to come.More > < Less

About Tactile Craftworks

Vintage Notebook

A fresh take on a traditional craft, these etched leather notebook covers are built to last a lifetime and pay tribute to your favorite city.

They’re made entirely in America with incredible attention to detail. Makers Sarah Kirkham and Anna Warren, who live in Milwaukee, decided to source their materials and do all manufacturing locally. The supple leather hides come from a local Milwaukee tannery. They are hand-cut and laser-engraved with antique, early 20th-century maps of U.S. cities right in the Maker’s hometown.

Since everything is so close by, Sarah and Anna are engaged at every stage of the process, from hand-selecting the materials to adding the finishing, post-technology touches to their work.

Tactile Craftworks journals come equipped with a removable (and replaceable) Moleskin notebook. So you can fill up as many pages as you want again, and again. Regardless of what you fill them with, these heirloom-quality covers wear beautifully and are worthy of your best ideas.
