Start Bay Traveler’s Notebook covers

These come from Cult Pens and are made in Devon in the UK.

Start Bay notebook cover in dark brown vegetable-tanned, full-grain leather (the thickest and strongest type of leather). This is a simple piece of best-quality leather folded in half to hold up to four A5 notebooks.

There’s a lot to be said for the simplicity of a straightforward notebook, just paper held together with staples, with a card cover. If you want notes on lined paper and sketches on plain, though, you’ll be carrying two notebooks. And perhaps you need to keep your work notes separate from your personal stuff, or sometimes you prefer squared or dot-grid paper – add another notebook. Maybe two more. Once you’re carrying more than one, a little of that simplicity is gone. And while those simple card covers keep the cost down, they aren’t the most durable things.

Now take the same notebooks – up to four of them – and use the elastic straps in this Start Bay Notebook Cover to hold them neatly in place, inside the beautiful full-grain leather. There. Now they look amazing, they’re kept neatly together, and they’re well protected from daily use. The simplicity is still there – this is just a single piece of top quality leather with some elastic straps. Oh, and because you only pay for the cover once, and the notebooks tend to be cheap, it doesn’t cost much in the long run either – it’s more cost-effective than buying sturdier notebooks, and it looks and feels better.

Hand-made in Devon (not far from Cult Pens!), embossed on the rear with the Start Bay logo. Minor imperfections and variations in the finish are normal. As with any real hand-made product, the item you receive may differ slightly from those depicted in the photographs. This is a product which will only get better with age and use!
Available in two sizes – A5 and 90x140mm.

Supplied in an untreated cotton bag with leather Start Bay logo.  Notebooks are not included.
