Fantastic is an understatement as to the quality. I have had other Etsy shops make me leather journals, but I will say with all honesty, this one is the best crafted; from quality leather to the stitching and finishing. Looking forward to getting the next piece soon enough.

Words simply cannot describe how incredible this notebook is. The craftsmanship is impeccable and gorgeous. I'm over the moon for my notebook cover. I will definitely be back for more!

Beautiful, top-notch craftsmanship. The item arrived within the posted timeframe and was definitely worth the wait. The leather is gorgeous and I'm planning to order another soon.

Amazing quality. Well worth the wait.
