Wunderbares hochwertiges Produkt

Ich bin begeistert von diesem wundervollen Leather Zippered A5 Notebook Folio. Ich benutze es für das skizzieren unterwegs. Die genaue Füllung muss sich noch im Alltag bewähren, aber ich bin total verliebt in dieses weiche, hochwertig verarbeitete Leder. Ich kann die Produkte von Galen Leather, soweit ich sie kenne und benutze nur wärmstens empfehlen. Sie sind jeden Cent wert.

It's so neat and pretty that it's an item I want to show off anytime, anywhere.

A new take on the A5 zippered folio

I no longer use A5 notebooks, but couldn’t bear to leave such an exceptionally beautiful folio star to sit neglected and un-admired on my shelf. I set to work finding her a new purpose, pairing her with some more exotic stationery supplies until I found something she feels pretty in. She is now my mobile correspondence station and is shining bright in her new role!

A first class quality of workmanship for first class clients around the world! From a student, to a writer sitting in a cabin, a journalists/diarists, to a board member in a meeting - this is a must have leather cover for your notebooks, planner, journals. It is elegant, beautifully made, and if you simply take care of it, it will last for a long time enough for you to pass it on handed it to the next generation.

Love This Folio!

This has become an everyday carry in my work bag and whenever I journal away from home. I was worried that it wouldn’t fit my Hobonichi A5 HON, and although it was teeny bit of a squeeze, she still zips up no problem! I alternate fountain pens, permanent markers, tomboy markers, and more depending on what I need that day/week.

Definitely recommend this gorgeous folio to anyone searching!

Perfect little notebook holder

Keeps my pens safe, notebook and all my nicknacks accessible and stored for work. Going to be really useful in the new year for starting my new role where I’ll be on the move a lot more.

I was quite overwhelmed on opening my LEATHER ZIPPERED A5 LEUCHTTURM1917 NOTEBOOK FOLIO - CRAZY HORSE HONEY OCHRE. Although I had seen and reviewed many you tube videos, and obviously thought it very attractive, these videos do little justice on how beautiful this is in the hand. The craftsmanship is outstanding from stitch to zip, the leather ..excellent quality. Over all, I am delighted, this is clearly an item in my possession that will last a lifetime and bring much joy in the years to come.
On a side note… the customer service is impeccable from the moment you order, communication in between waiting for delivery, as was the packaging and attention to detail in the ‘unboxing’ experience! You truly feel you are the very first customer to order . So many thanks

Zipped journal cover

Wow! Just wow! Such beautiful craftsmanship 🤩 I absolutely adore my new journal cover, although advertised for an A5 journal, I keep this journal me for my weeks journal, it is perfect. Storage for selection of my fountain pens included was simply a must have and this zippered cover has it all. 100% recommend this for either your weekly or A5 … 5⭐️

Perfect and I love it.

I’m a welding inspector who works in the field a lot and I love my folio cover. I was tired of my yearly journals falling apart at the end of the year so I opted to buy a cover from Galen Leather and I am glad I did. It’s ruged with a heavy duty zipper and I love the pen/pencil holders inside. I’ve had my cover for a few months now and there is no sign of fatigue in ANY of the stitching or construction. I absolutely love it.
