Now I want all the colours! It is even more beautiful in person.
Fits my Hobonichi A5 Avec and my fountain pens snugly. :)
Will use this for years to come.

Smells great too compared to other leather products I've had before.

Happy Birthday to me!

I purchased this gorgeous notebook folio as a treat for my birthday. I be am reasonably new to the journaling community and I have been hearing so many wonderful things about Galena products. I must say that they have exceeded all expectations. The leather quality is outstanding and so is the workmanship. I also found the pricing to be very good compared to other similar items. I am very happy with my new notebook. I can’t wait to buy more leather products. Thank you for making such a wonderful item.

Phenomenal product!

I purchased this for my sketchbook, a Nanami Seven Seas A5 notebook. It holds my essential drawing supplies beautifully and I now feel more inspired to draw! Amazing how wonderful statonery can do that sometimes. I also love all the Turkish treats they provide with every order, like samples of tea, coffee and the Evil Eye :) It was like having a friend from Turkey send me a little care package. I will be ordering more products, for certain! Thank you to craftsman Yusuf, and thank you Galen Leather!

Look amazing

Very beautiful and stylish with my Montblanc black/gold pens (149/146) and everything fits perfect. Leather smells great. And service is perfect!

Awesome craftsmanship…

I was very happy to receive my order within only 6 days, including a weekend, and not only it was quick but I was very impressed with the product quality and the awesome craftsmanship.
Now, I know that I will order, in confidence, more beautiful items from this Company.
Also, thank you for the additional gifts which are really appreciated.
Congratulations for your great work, you have just earned a new happy customer 👍

It's everything I could want out of a folio and more!

Though I've only owned this folio for approximately a month now, I already feel an immense sense of comfort and security whenever I pull this out. It fits wonderfully into the back of Galen Leather's Medic Bag, even when fully loaded with materials -- and wow, can it hold a lot! I'm currently keeping three fountain pens and four technical pens in mine, along with my Midori MD as a journal. It works beautifully as as standalone unit, and even more-so when paired with a satchel loaded with every other bit of stationary one could need. The leather feels nice and thick, with a soft exterior that's textured with a tastefully-distressed finish. I can even write in my journal comfortably without having to pull the book out of its sleeve, as the folio opens up flat without any issue. Every component feels solid and assuredly dependable. It's a writer/artist's best friend!

As good as advertised and the reviews say it is.

The leather is soft and beautiful. The construction is excellent and I love the way I lays flat. I filled it with a matching notebook in Crazy Horse Brown and it looks tremendous. The presentation of their products when you receive them is first class. This is a keeper! And to those who are concerned about the leather getting scratched. It is going to happen and that is part of the look! And it can be fixed easily. Or you can leave it for "that" look. :)

The best purchase ever! Speechless!

I have just received the folio from Galen leather and I must say that the quality of the hand-made product is beyond reproach. The presentation of the package and the way everything was sent shows just how involved and attentive to every detail the people from Galen leather are. Congratulations on your amazing company! I will definitely order other products in the future.

1 year of use and still love it!

I have been using my folio daily for over a year (it goes EVERYWHERE with me), the undyed leather has darkened a lot and shows every mark or drop of water that touches it. I love it but it might not be for everyone. I have included a photo of my folio compared to a new pen case in undyed leather so you can see the difference a year of use makes. The removable pen holder is handy; my diary is pretty thick so fountain pens don’t fit in the folio, instead I use it to store my fountain pens in my uni pencil case. If anything happened to my folio I would not hesitate to buy another one!
