I have two binders and a notebook in Janet Leather 104, which is the original tan version of this leather. The binder below is the first item made from the battered scarred hide I found at the factory in 2014. Binder zero so to speak. This photograph was taken after about six months of constant use.
I also have a red Janet Leather (JL) Codex cover
And an Undyed JL Nomad
Those are the only colours of JL I have, even though this glorious leather comes in many shades.
I have always hankered after pebbly black JL. Like this one which belongs to Irene
But when I came to the Van Der Spek factory, I fell totally in love with this Brown JL . This brown shows as bitter in some photos and warm in others but in real life it is a little in between. Isn’t it absolutely gorgeous? I am having an item made with it and I was lucky enough to be able to choose which parts of the hide I wanted.
