WOW! Breathless….

I’ve never really been loyal to any specific brand when it comes to leather products. I’ve tried them all (Moterm, Midori, etc)….until now. Galen is the gold standard, hands down! I was stunned at the speed with which it arrived, the packaging, the communication, and most of all the product. Just. Wow.

This leather is supple, it has been aged and loved, the craftsmanship is stunning. This fit my Hobonichi perfectly. I chose the color to compliment my Moterm apricot planner and it absolutely does. I use the word compliment because the Galen leather is the star of that show. I have included pictures so you can see the comparison.

I will only buy Galen Leather from now on. Stellar! I love your story, I love the craft and art you put into your products and I would give you 10 stars if I could. Thank you for being a breath of fresh air to do business with!

Amazing Notebook Cover

The notebook arrived very quickly which was a bonus and the packaging everything I ordered with it was very thought through! (I bought A5 Everyday book as well)

The package came with a packet of tea (which I immediately brewed and enjoyed) and a single pen sleeve which I did not even order but was very pleasantly surprised when I opened the box. I use these to take notes with my favorite fountain pen anywhere without a worry about them. The leather is great quality and feels as good as it looks!

Love it!

I’ve been looking at the Galen Leather Slim Cover for about a year now and decided to finally buy it. Shipping was fast. I got it within a week.

The leather cover is so beautifully crafted that I’m thinking for buying another one!

It’s now the cover of my 2024 Hobonichi Cousin!

Love this leather! (Crazy Horse Tan)

I ended up purchasing this cover in 3 sizes because I love the covers and this leather so much (Crazy Horse Tan). Feels and smells wonderful. Fits the notebooks that they are intended for perfectly. As always with Galen products the craftsmanship is impeccable.

A perfect notebook cover

This notebook cover is exactly what I wanted. The quality is beyond compare, and the price is amazing. I have a slim cover in the B6 size, as well, in navy blue, which I also love. And I also have a wallet insert in crazy horse brown that I've used for years now.

The pictures I enclosed are of my A5 size cover in crazy horse tan. They were taken inside in daylight, without a flash and without and overhead light.

I want to note that while Galen says the slim covers are designed only for softcover notebooks, I have a Rhodia webnotebook hardcover in mine. Previously, I also had a casebound Black n' Red notebook in it. The cover itself doesn't lay flat when opened with hardcover notebooks in it, but the notebooks themselves do. So I just wanted people to know that was a possibility, because it works out perfectly for me.

I also love all the goodies Galen includes with orders -- often an evil eye charm, Turkish coffee and tea, stickers, a beautiful postcard, single pen sleeves, sturdy storage boxes. It's remarkable. And their customer service is amazing. I had a question about a product, and they sent a detailed and thoughtful reply the next day.

I also love the pen loops on these covers. The leather front makes them look great, but the elastic in the back allows you to use any size pen.

I fully plan on buying more A5 slim covers in other colors when they are back in stock, as well as other Galen Leather products. In the meantime, I love knowing I have such a beautiful and durable notebook cover. I look forward to using it for years, and hopefully decades to come.

Amazing quality!

This cover is perfect: it is soft, well stitched and has gorgeous color! It fits perfectly. I love so much the care put into the details and the packaging. I also enjoyed the giveaways so much: simply lovely! Thank you so much :)

The best!

I came across Galen leather on YouTube. Fantastic reviews for this company and their products. These are the people I want to deal with. Attention to detail and customer appreciation is what it’s all about and they are amazing. I ordered the leather slim A5 notebook in coyote tan. It’s beautiful, just a wonderful piece of leather and well worth the price. I ordered my notebook on a Sunday and received it on the following Friday, five days, even though I was was informed it was likely to be two weeks ( which was no problem), I look forward to shopping with Galen Leather again and it is my pleasure to do business with these wonderful people again.

I really like it. I really really do.

I ordered this notebook cover for my daily journal because the ones I have had in the past would not lay flat. There where buttons or bobs or whatever it made the writing surface uneven and I hated it. That was the main selling point for me with this notebook cover. It had a spot for cards and a bonus pen holder. I thought great. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because the pen holder is a little small for my Lamy Nexx fountain pen. I like using an oversized pen because it is more comfortable in my hand. This is not a fault with the planner I am sure that if you use normal sized pens then you will have no problems. Would recommend this to anyone who wants a fillable journal for writing from end to end. Great quality and worth the money without a doubt.


Great product.
