This one was where it all started. I had a Moleskin notebook getting beat around in my back pack. After going through the wilderness and lakes of Canada, the volcanic landscapes of Iceland, and the hustle and bustle of London, by the time I was it Portugal my note book was looking pretty sad. I didn’t know where to buy leather, so I went searching thrift stores looking for old leather jackets or boots or anything to cut up and make a cover. I found an old leather purse. It was a really basic design but it worked and it Is still one of my favourite things I have made. The day I finished this one an acquaintance asked if I would make him one. I didn’t know it then, but it seem destined to develop into a business with time and lots of work.
