Refillable Leather Wrap Journal / Planner Cover - C. H. Ocean Blue

Stunner! This leather wrap journal cover is absolutely gorgeous in the C.H. Ocean Blue! I wanted to be sure to include a couple photos, as there were not any stock photos available in this color when I ordered. The pictures do not do the color justice! It is beautifully made and matches the pen zip case that I purchased. It snugly fits my journal and has an inner leather loop to hold a pen. It is truly beautiful the way that they wove the strap. I am so excited to use this for many years to come! Additionally, it was packaged so beautifully in a sturdy box and was sent along with some very thoughtful and wonderful gifts. Excellent personalized care, Galen Leather! Well done!

My first Galen leather

Ordered the journal wrap in brown a few mounts ago as my daily journal cover. I’ve used it everyday since. It’s incredibly well made and very sturdy. It does not scratch easily and is soft on the inside. The leather lace used to strap the cover closed holds very well and when you open the cover it will lay flat every time. Thank you Galen leather for the great products and fast shipping..

My favorite journal cover

I have used this journal cover everyday for the past 3 months. I use it with the A5 Hobonichi cousin. The quality of the leather is extremely high. I like the string closure method. The color of the undyed leather gets richer over time, making it a truly special item.

Very pleased

I bought this cover to match leuchtturm navy 1917 A5 hard cover perfect fit and match. Leather is firm not flimsy. I expect this to last and only get better as it ages. Exactly what I was looking for, shipping faster than expected.

Wonderful leather color and feel

Excellent workmanship and after sales service.
Will be even better if there's internal pockets . Highly recommended.

Everything I wanted is here.

So pretty!

I got this cover for a makeshift bullet journal system I'm creating with some notebook inserts and love it so much. The quality on all of my Galen Leather products are really great. The feel is smooth on the outside, and I love the wraparound strap. Fits my A5 notebook inserts perfectly, along with some elastic bands. And the color is such a deep forest green!

Light midnight/blue leather......

Bonjour J'aime beaucoup cette couverture, j'aurai du l'acheter en Grey... le bleu est pas mal... utilisé actuellement, sympa, pas lourd, pas encombrant. J'ai supprimé le lien en cuir, et mis un élastique.... plus simple. Un joli produit, merci de mettre votre attention sur la qualité du cuir, odeur absente, c'est dommage. Merci pour votre travail... see you soon. M.v.S.

I got the refillable journal wrap in crazy horse brown, its beautiful. I also got the blank tomoe river notebook they sell. Together, it has made journaling an absolute delight.

I conditioned it with the leather balm, and it had an impact on color, darkening it slightly. This is expected, will revert overtime, and provided some protection from micro-scratching. Lets be honest though, with time and love, this thing is going to be the coolest thing i own.

The “envelope” closes well, even with a pen in a soft case tucked in. It closes perfectly when the pen is in the loop. My pilot VP and TwSBI eco fit great. Its partially elastic (you cant see that part, very well designed), so it stretches and would fit an even larger pen. Maybe not a KOP or a Pelikan 1000; they’re gigantic - but i’d think most people keep pens like that in their own cases anyway.

Journaling on the blank tomoe river pages has been wonderful. I played with some strong shimmer & sheen inks using a dip pen, which was a lot of fun on the good paper. The raw leather blotter that comes with is a big upgrade from my 20 y/o faded pieces of construction paper as well.

Cant speak highly enough. If your on the fence - stop waiting and pull the trigger. You dont find quality like this at these prices.
