A One of a Kind in the Making
Wondering what makes a One of a Kind truly one of a kind? Read on!
First, we start with huge leather hides.
We lay them out on the table and ooh and aah over the smells, colors, textures, and natural markings.
The leather gets cut down to size for our small and large size One of a Kinds.
Now that the leather is cut down to size, we carefully select an assortment of pages from our collection of artist papers, lined pages, cardstock, and more.
We lay the pages out on the table to make sure each journal is getting the right amount of care and attention.
The set of pages is called a "signature". We combine the carefully laid out papers to create the signatures - each journal is made up of 6 signatures.
We wrap the signatures with the leather and choose a matching thread and ribbon color.
We get the rest of the tools out and hammer holes in the leather and poke holes in the signatures. Now everything is prepared for sewing the pages into the leather.
The last step is to attach the ribbon or leather strap et voila!
A beautifully crafted One of a Kind Leather Journal.
