Personalised Stitched Leather Travel Journal


Luxury handcrafted leather journal personalised with initials, holding an A6 travel notebook.

Luxury handcrafted leather journal personalised with initials, holding an A6 travel notebook.

A beautifully handcrafted A6 leather journal, available in classic black or vintage tan brown leather, personalised with your initials. The leather cover holds a plain paper notebook inside, a great size for tucking in your jacket 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. Inside the cover there is a small slip pocket, perfect for business cards, notes or receipts.

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 travel journal is cut, stitched and finished by hand, we stamp the final product with personalised initials to make it yours then subtly deboss with the Man & Bear brand mark on the back - 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.
