A beautifully leather notebook cover
We offer many different options to create a truly unique notebook cover - from a choice of leather and elastic color through to brass charms and different sizes.
Beautifully handmade product with a lovely retro looking presentation. The cover was made quicker than expected and I received it in a very short time. The customer service was also very communicative. I will buy again new products here for sure.
This is my first TN, and my second Galen Leather product (I also have the 5-pen notebook carry case, in crazy horse brown). I chose the pocket size as I prefer using Field Notes and similar sized notebooks. Right now I have it filled with 2 Field Notes books, a slightly smaller sketch notebook, and a little folder for carrying index cards. Everything fits nicely.
It arrived beautifully packaged and included an "evil eye" charm, a nice touch. The quality of the leather seems very nice, although I noticed something that looks like burn marks on the inside part of the cover. Not sure if that's from the burnishing process or what, but it was the only thing that stuck out to me as an aesthetic flaw. I love the crazy horse forest green color, which has a rougher look than many of the other leathers, and the brass compass charm looks absolutely gorgeous against it--however, note that the compass points are very sharp! Which makes it tricky to slip the elastic on and off without pricking my fingers. This does get a little frustrating sometimes; I actually ended up attaching a separate hanging charm of my own just to give me something less painful to grab onto to help with getting the elastic on and off.
Also the compass definitely scratches the leather. For me this wasn't a huge problem as I kind of like the overall effect it lends to this particular style of cover--making it look even more broken in and well used--but if you think you would be bothered by the scratches, you may want to give this charm and any others with pointy or sharp edges a pass. If I were to order another TN, I would probably not order a charm with it.
Overall I was impressed with the quality and presentation of this product and would recommend Galen Leather.
This is my fourth Galen Leather TN and I adore it! I love the Galen TN design so much better than the Midori because it has 4 elastics, and the closure elastic comes out of the spine.
Also, this colour is so unique, and the leather is absolutely gorgeous and beautifully worked as always. Perfect! :)
I love that the product looks exactly as it does in pictures. Rich, gorgeous shade of forest green. I'm using two notebook inserts, a vinyl zip pocket insert, a fabric zip pocket insert, and a kraft folder -- everything fits without overhang. I ordered one for myself and one as a gift for my sister in early December, and I received the package 2 days before Christmas.
I ordered the large size with the wallet insert. I love the extra room to protect my notebook edges.
