Product description

These stylish rustic journals beautifully handmade from untreated leather, dyed with vegetable extract and tree bark.

The leather is a by-product.

Words of Wisdom

Our Journals are filled with beautiful handmade paper, created from pieces of recycled cotton rag. This ancient paper making skill has been passed on through generations. Cotton paper has the additional benefit of being tree free as no wood pulp is used. Each sheet is painstakingly made by hand and dried by the sun before being bound in leather and carefully hand stitched.

Care Instructions

To care for your journal, we recommend storing in a dry place. Regularly wipe the leather with a soft, dry cloth and avoid any contact with moisture or heat. Due to the nature of the leather, the colour will change over time and will fade if left in direct sunlight.

A favourite

I used my last Nkuku journal as a photo album, and was so pleased with the result that I have bought another. As the binding is soft, and the signatures are sewn not glued, it expands to fill whatever you want to stuff it with, while the strap keeps everything together. The paper is soft and thick, and surprisingly good to write on. The leather is very different on my new journal from the old one (pale and smooth rather than dark and grainy) but both are very tactile and pleasing.
