Naked Cow/Journals by Joey

I have long been a fan of the work of  Joseph (Joey) Delsordo from Naked Cow on Etsy. He has a selection of really lovely leathers (which are nicely described in some of his YouTube videos, particularly in terms of pliability), and continues to develop the range of extra choices he offers. These extra options make all the difference. You can see he takes all suggestions on board and really thinks about new options before he introduces them.

Once you have chosen your cover, you can (if you wish) build your own TN by adding any of the following:

  • your choice of elastic colour
  • your choice of stitching colour
  • different kinds of pockets (floating, secretarial, credit card)
  • page holders in the colour of your choice
  • floating pen pouch
  • pen loops – either fixed or floating
  • magnetic closure (if you do not want an elastic)

Joey also offers certain ‘fixed’ designs, such as the wallet/notebooks.

At the end of the year, Joey will be changing his name from Naked Cow to Journals by Joey. All items purchased up to and including 31 December 2016 will have the old name and logo. And on 1st January 2017, Joey will start to use his new name and logo. Everything else will stay the same, it is just the name and logo that are changing. The leathers and notebooks will be the same glorious works of art as ever. Joey is a real sweetheart and I would recommend anyone who has not dealt with him before to peruse his site and buy with confidence.

As always, I am not affiliated with any shop and I do not receive any perks for writing articles about them. I am a customer just like anyone else and write about them purely for the love of leather and notebooks!
