Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Indra Handmade Leather Journal , 100% Cotton Pages, Free Cotton Gift Bag (15cm x 20cm)
Very pleased with this item. I wanted something different from the usual journals you get in shops like WH Smith or other shops and I was NOT disappointed.
I wanted something simple, made of leather (as i like the smell) and something with paper which would be fountain pen friendly. Again I was NOT disappointed
The leather tie that goes around the journal is a nice touch too. I like how i can also use it as a bookmark too.
It is real leather too, NOT fake. This just adds a whole atmosphere to the journal. While I age, so will the Journal. As I wrinkle, the leather will too. I like the naturalness of it.
Ok enough about the leather. The paper inside is very nice too. Unlike that paper you usually get inside Pukka Pads or the like, it soaks up the ink from my fountain pen nicely. It doesn't 'bleed' or 'feather', perhaps its got something to do with the pen I use (LAMY Joy 1.1 calligraphy nib) but the writing in it is very smooth.
Its very well made and I just love carrying it around with me. Yes, I carry my iPhone around with me too so I could always start a digital journal however with a digital Journal, one can just delete mistakes and start new. With this, one will think more carefully before they put pen to paper. Digital files can be lost (and i suppose this could get damaged) however I feel that my Leather journal will be around for many decades.
So, to wrap up. Very nice journal, lovely paper inside and simplistic look & feel about it.
Thanks for the ability to purchase one :)
