Using ethically and sustainably sourced Full Grain Kangaroo leather which has been sustainably vegetable tanned. The leather is Dyed by me using locally made spirit based dyes. After dyeing the leather has been coated in a clear gloss finish and then conditioned with a natural wax and oil blend of Byron bound leather balm, a free tin of which will be included for leather maintenance.

A unique closure system has been used with 100% brass D shackles which create a minimal and streamlined closure with excellent strength and tension. After careful consideration of countless closures, I have concluded that this system is the most versatile, easy to use, tensile and functional of any possible at this time.

After careful consideration and study of ancient texts depicting leather bound binding structures, I have replicated these into a beautiful pattern that binds in a long stitch style using natural beeswax coated hemp twine, 96pgs of 100% Australian made premium pale blue vellum with a slightly deckled edge. This beautifully textured writing paper accepts all inks willingly and with zero bleed. Overall this journal is the perfect companion to any adventurer.
