Riveted Leather Field Notes Journal Cover
This rugged Journal Cover fits 3.5” x 5.5” notebooks and was specifically designed for the Field Notes Brand Notebooks.
The American Bench Craft Leather Journal Cover is constructed from a single piece of rugged, full grain leather, hand-cut from one of our vegetable-tanned Steer hides. We stamp and finish the Journal Cover using simple hand tools for an entirely handcrafted product, proudly Made-in-the-USA.
The Journal Cover is secured with metal rivets, small enough to fit in your pocket and the perfect accessory for To-Do Lists, Reminders, and everyday thoughts and ideas.
Our Journal Cover is 3.75” x 6.5” and includes a FREE Field Notes Notebook with your purchase.
Field Notes Brand Kraft Paper Notebooks are slim, minimal Notebooks that are 100% American-made and can be easily changed out of your Journal Cover once filled. Refill Field Notes Brand Kraft Paper Notebooks are also sold on our Web site.
Why Vegetable-Tanned Leather?
We use only vegetable-tanned leather, because it is entirely all-natural, environmentally friendly, requires skilled craftsmen to produce and dye, smells like leather not chemicals and develops a unique patina that is entirely your own. All of this ensures our Leather Journal Covers are of the highest quality and craftsmanship.
Why NO thread stitching?
Both thread stitching and metal rivets offer strong holds. However, we’ve found rivets hold up better against the heat and friction from carrying your Journal Cover in your pocket. Over time, heat and friction fray thread, which results in many leather goods falling apart. Heat and friction simply polish metal; making rivets a unique and strong alternative to thread stitching.
Why a Single Piece of Leather?
Simple products are more durable. Fewer parts equal less susceptibility to failure. The single piece design ensures that our Journal Covers will last for years to come.
How can you tell our Leather is Full Grain?
Upon close inspection, you’ll notice subtle scars, brands and marks that ensure your Leather Journal Cover was made from full grain leather. Hides are split into numerous layers; however, each hide has only one Full Grain layer. The Full Grain layer is the very top of the hide, and is the most sought after cut because it is the strongest layer and develops a unique patina, which allows the leather to improve with age and use.
The subtle imperfections characteristic of full grain leather ensure the authenticity of your Journal Cover, and that a completely all-natural and unaltered material was used in its construction, making your Journal Cover incredibly durable and one-of-a-kind.
