    Leather Journals

    <p>Crafted and bound in our Florentine workshop, our stunning range of leather handmade journals make a perfect gift for the budding writer, or as a treat for yourself.</p> <p>The care and craftsmanship put into creating our diaries and notebooks can be felt in the first touch, and the skill of our artisans is second to none. Reviving the old-world craft of traditional Italian bookbinding, they product each element, from the soft and supple Italian leather covers to the hand-sewn bindings, inside our workshop. The only time we use machinery is to keep book spines straight while the glue dries, merging cover and pages together seamlessly.</p> <p>The paper we use is truly a luxurious medium. It’s been our signature ever since we found Il Papiro Firenze in 1976. Made of the highest quality fibres, the tactile surface holds ink, pencil and chalk fast, so you can capture the inner musings of your mind.</p> <p>What’s more, we also offer the option to add a unique touch by customising paper, colour and embossing – ideal for businesses and individuals.</p>

    Personalised Journals

    <p>When you want to add an extra custom touch to the everyday stationery pieces in your life, you simply can’t go past a personalised journal.</p> <p>Our beautifully made luxury personalised journals showcase a look and feel that’s distinctly Il Papiro, yet distinctively you. No matter how many notebooks you’ve already filled with your musings, drawings or notes, these pieces stand out from the rest. With your choice of pages, covers and embellishments, the style is undeniably one-of-a-kind. From one-offs to business supplies and even entire sets, there’s nothing quite like an Il Papiro piece to make a statement.</p> <p>Better yet, why not have a special set made for the intellectual or artist in your life? There’s nothing like having a customised piece made specifically for that special someone in your life.</p> <p> </p> <h2>Create your own personalised leather journal</h2> <p>While we have plenty of stunning notebooks and stationery arriving from our Florence factory, the process of crafting custom pieces is a little more hands-on. The beauty of handmade goods is that flexibility is guaranteed – and once we’re done making a piece for you, there’ll never be another quite like it.</p> <p>There are two types of customisation that we offer:</p> <ol> <li><strong>Custom embossed cover</strong>, featuring either gold, silver or blind embossing</li> <li><strong>Non-embossed cover</strong>, featuring tailor-made paper and cover</li> </ol> <p>Either way, the style is classic, well-made and timeless. If you select an embossed cover, your choice of logo, name or branding will stand out against the soft Italian leather we’re so well known for. You will never have to wade through your collection to find notes or ideas again.</p> <p>For those who’d like slightly more discrete tailoring, our non-embossed cover is the way to go. We will pair your choice of pages with a leather outer in the style of your choosing. Choose from marble, lined or blank pages, or a mixture of the above.</p> <p>Whether you’ve found a style that suits you, or you’d like something a little different, our artisans have the skill and craftsmanship to bring your vision to life – blending old-world luxury with the modern era.</p> <p> </p> <h3>Beautiful, tailor-made selection</h3> <p>Should you wish to have a tailor-made design created by our artisans, please get in touch with our team with your requirements. We do our best to portray each design in detail so that you can see the beautiful craftsmanship for yourself.</p> <p>For those who prefer the tactical experience of sensing <a href="" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">leather</a> and paper, we invite you to visit our Melbourne store in person. Here you’ll find plenty of physical examples that can be admired with all the senses, then used as a reference to let our staff know what you’re looking for.</p> <p>Once we have specified the brief, it’s off to Florence, where our talented artisans begin working on a one-of-a-kind design made just for you.
