Our leather bound journal is perfect for the creative spirit or the business person wanting to impress clients with something other than run of the mill notebooks. Whether you write, sketch or design, chase business deals and close sales this is the essential stationary accessory for you.
If you want to keep a record of your work and file away the volumes the block of pages has a write on spine for easy reference.
Tanner Bates Journals make great presents especially for those who care about the environment and the preservation of two of Britain's important traditional crafts, the leatherworker and the bookbinder.
You can personalise your Tanner Bates Journal with a message, name or initials up to 14 characters long in a choice of pigments: gold, silver or matt black. The Journal arrives in a presentation box with the full and fascinating story of its provenance.
This re-fillable Journal came about as a collaboration between two traditional skills - the leatherworker and the bookbinder. The leather binding is made entirely by hand using naturally tanned leather. Here is a link to your leather choices.
This binding is far too good to be used only once so we make this special writing book refillable so you can use the binding again and again, the leather becoming more beautiful with time. The pages are sewn, not glued, which means they will lie flat wherever you open the book - a subtle luxury. They have a cloth spine on which you could write and file away for reference purposes. The paper is unlined, and can be written on with a fountain pen without the ink bleeding through the paper. The paper is recycled and off white in colour. The raw material is well known for its quality in the printing trade and goes by the name of Woodland Wove.

Our leather is ethically and sustainably processed. The tannery uses a mixture of tree barks to transform the animal hides to leather. This is an ancient tradition which yields the familiar leather smell. Natural oils evaporate over time and need replenishing. Your leather benefits from and will look its very best if given an occasional dose of natural waxes and oils. Our Leather care information card is included with every purchase.
Tanner Bates products are made from distinctive and unusual leathers. It is our speciality.
