I love the nostalgia of a good  leather journal, and nothing makes a classier way to preserve memories of your travels. Don’t you love the way that leather ages with use, taking on that beautiful distressed look? Well, I can’t wait to see how this beautiful leather journal from Rustico Leather looks in a few years, because it’s beautiful even now.

The Traveler Leather Journal comes in a deep, rich, brown leather with a tie closure. The cover is sturdy enough to hold its shape, but soft enough to feel good to the touch as well. And when you open it up, filled with unlined pages made from a heavy cream-colored stock, with rough edges. So if you’re one of those people who loves to sketch things, this is a great journal where you can mix sketches and words together in one package. There are beautiful patterned end papers in a teal and brown color.

Oh, that leather smell — it’s been sitting on my desk for a few days and my whole office smells of leather. Excuse me for a few moments while I take another deep inhale of premium leather.

Anyway, the journal is the star in the writers’ set I received, and is so nice I’m reluctant to write in it. It’s something I definitely want to save for a special trip.

But I also received a passport cover in a slightly warmer shade of leather, with subtle “PASSPORT” embossing on the cover.  The passport cover is machine-stitched and sturdy leather to do the job of protecting your precious documents.

The third item in my set was a sturdy leather luggage tag. The luggage tag is, well, a luggage tag, so it’s not exactly designed to set the world on fire, but this one gets the job done. It’s sturdy, although instead of leather on the backside, it’s a wool type material.

They also make some beautiful leather satchels I would love to try out some day. the designs are very simple and not girly, but I know I actually prefer that style as I’m sure many others do as well.
