Colville Leather notebook covers
Whether you’re using it to plan your hectic schedule, share your secrets, or as an outlet to express your emotions, your journal is sacred. Its pages tell a unique story of your comings and goings, a story that we believe should be protected.
Keep your journal safe with one of our genuine leather notebook covers. Made with the finest quality leather, and handcrafted with exquisite attention to detail, they make the perfect companion for a treasured journal or diary.
First up, The Tourer. This charming leather journal cover is perfectly sized for the popular Moleskine notebooks (although it will easily fit notebooks of a similar size and design like the ones we’ve mentioned above). Designed to hold up to two notebooks, along with three credit cards or a handful of business cards, it is a versatile everyday carry. It even features a handy full-length pen sleeve on the front cover so that your favourite pen will be on hand at all times.
The Tourer is available in a range of stunning leathers, including the celebrated Horween Derby leather, a waxed, vegetable-tanned side variety hailing all the way from Chicago. This leather ages beautifully over time, with a stunning ‘pull-up’ effect to give it a palpable rugged charm. Whichever leather you choose, the cover of your Tourer will develop a unique patina over the years, hinting at the tales captured inside your journal.
Available in a choice of seven exquisite leathers, there’s a Voyager to suit everyone’s tastes. Whether you choose the blank canvas of freshly-made natural leather, or the rich and warming tones of the chestnut variety, you are guaranteed a superior vegetable-tanned leather. Each leather we work with is produced by a carefully selected tannery, so you can be sure that your notebook cover is nothing short of the finest quality.
The Voyager has been designed around the Moleskine notebooks, but again will fit others of a similar size and design. Carefully designed and crafted with the needs of regular journalers in mind, this stylish and versatile notebook cover has everything you need to get scribbling right away. There’s space for two notebooks, along with a few credit cards and a selection of business cards or appointment slips. Plus, have your pen on hand 24/7 thanks to the handy holder on the front.
