Great buy!

The product is just as advertised. Right away you can tell it is of great quality and will only get better with the daily wear and tear. The only thing I would do is offer it with the option of being a daily planner as well versus just a journal.More > < Less

This is a beautifully crafted book. My only complaint is that when I open it, the book inside is upside down and backwards. I believe it is for a left handed person and I am right handed. The one in the picture appears to open correctly for a right handed person.More > < Less

About Tactile Craftworks

Love of Heritage

A fresh take on a traditional craft, these etched leather notebook covers and passport wallets 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.
