Personalised Leather Journal with Brass Plate


A6 refillable leather notebook with personalised message plate, available in black or tan brown.

A6 refillable leather notebook with personalised message plate, available in black or tan brown.

A smart leather journal, holding an A6 plain paper notebook inside. It’s a great size for tucking in your inside pocket and making notes when on-the-move, whether you’re travelling to meetings or to the other end of the world. The journal is also refillable meaning the luxury leather cover can be used over and over, ageing beautifully as all good things should. Each leather travel journal is complete with an engraved brass plate, personalised with your own message.

We’ve chosen a plain paper notebook insert because it’s said to promote creativity and help you process ideas. A wise teacher of Tony’s once said that lined paper puts constraints on your thoughts whereas plain paper allows your mind and musing to be completely free flowing - and who are we to argue? You can order more refills here when you’ve filled up all the pages.

Man & Bear desk accessories are designed, handcrafted and personalised by our small workshop team in the New Forest, England. We have honed our skills over years of experience, sourcing the highest quality leather and working with traditional processes to celebrate the best of UK craftsmanship. Each leather pencil case is cut by hand, carefully constructed and finished with solid brass attachments, then subtly debossed on the back with the Man & Bear brand mark - our seal of approval and a nod to life’s adventures.

Need a pen with that? For £11 you can add a super sleek companion pen to your order - it’s a black ballpoint pen at one end and a mechanical pencil at the other, a winning combo. Find out more here.

Great for:

  • Scribbling down your profound thoughts and unfinished lists
  • Engraving with words of wisdom or a joke he’ll smile at
  • Tucking in your suit pocket, ready for your next brainwave

Need to know:

  • Each notebook cover can be engraved with up to 45 characters on the mounted brass plate. We copy your entry exactly so make sure it’s bang on before submitting.

  • The journals are handmade from sustainably sourced vegetable-tanned leather, treated with waxes and oils to give a distinctive antique look. The notebook inserts are made from recycled paper and the journals are complete with an elastic strap and brass finishings.
