Handmade Crazy Horse Brown Refillable Leather Wrap Journal / Planner Cover


Crazy Horse Ocean Blue Ocean blue color has tones between rich blue and teal. Bright colors like blue are sensitive to sunlight and fading. Therefore, there is more wax and protection on the leather surface in this color, so the leather surface is smoother and more semi-shiny than other crazy horse leather colors. Ocean Blue develops a very nice patina with use over time.


8.6 x 6.3 x 1  inches (22 x 16 x 2.5 cm)



This simple Handmade Crazy Horse Brown Refillable Leather Wrap Journal / Planner Cover is for the minimalist who wants to travel light. A leather strap wraps around this slim, hand stitched leather cover, keeping your planner and favorite writing utensil safe and secure while you're on the move. Each cover is unique as the leather patina will change with use over time, giving it a beautiful vintage character, and can be refilled with a new notebook to last for years.

  • A5 size soft covered notebooks and Everyday Book Blank A5 400 pages

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.

Great wrap

Very well made. Notebook fits snugly in it.

Perfect Journal Cover

The craftmanship on this cover is wonderful. I have combined it with the EVERYDAY BLANK NOTEBOOK - TOMOE RIVER PAPER - A5 SIZE - 400 PAGES, which fits great, and is the perfect journaling medium for me.

Good but has some features that don't work for me

I like this journal cover and use it on an everyday basis. However, it does have two issues. First, I am finding that the leather strap stretches over time, which means that I will probably have to do something to reduce its length at some point in the future. Second, the pen loop is too small and not stretchy enough to take larger pens like the Pilot Custom 845 Urushi.

Classy, well made notebook.

Made with very high quality leather, this is a wonderfully put together notebook. I’m very pleased with my purchase and will be back for additional purchases.

Gorgeous dark green notebook cover that is as lovely to look at as it is to hold. Fits any A5 notebook no problem, though as the slot for the back cover is a little stiff when brand new, it may be difficult to get a softcover notebook in there at first. I struggled a bit to get the softcover Everyday Notebook I ordered with the cover in there, but my hardcover Leuchtturm1917 fits just as well. I imagine as it softens with time it will become easier. The pen loop is also just the right size to fit most of my pens--exceptionally chunky pens may not fit.

I also ordered this cover with a flap style pen case in the same Crazy Horse Forest Green, and noticed they matched exceptionally well for handmade items from a type of leather with significant variation. The cards each piece came with confirmed both were made by Yusuf on the exact same day, presumably from the same lot of leather! That on top of the care taken in packaging and the small gifts included in the order (I drank the tea! It was lovely!) show the pride Galen Leather takes in their work. I will be back to order more and have already spoken very highly of you to friends and family!
