Very cute Knot.

This is a cute, well made “monkey’s fist” bookmark. I added it to my new travelers notebook cover that I also got from Galen Leather, though I have to admit I had not idea how to attach it. I ended up threaded it through the holes that the elastics are threaded through and it seems to work well that way. I kind of wish It had instructions or maybe you’re just supposed to slip it inside a book like a regular bookmark. I might be thinking it through too much. LOL

Delightful Detail

Amazingly complex knot with sufficient weight to work as a page holder too.

Simple but elegant, I love it

I forgot to put one in my order so I contacted Galen directly to ask the to add it.
It's adorable and fits the tn perfectly.

A little pop of color

I wanted a pop of color with my TN, so I added the turquoise knot as a bookmark. I am extremely happy with my purchase.

So Simple Yet So Complex

I bought two of these one for a gift, one for me. I was surprised at the intricacy of this little knot. It is very well made and will be a fun addiction to the TN I bought. I bought the natural and the color is lovely. I am very happy with the purchase. If you want to add a little fun to your notebook, this is a great addition!
