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.
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.
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.
What’s more, we also offer the option to add a unique touch by customising paper, colour and embossing – ideal for businesses and individuals.
Our Italian leather journals preserve your writing in style
Keep track of your thoughts, favourite recipes, adventures or research notes in one of our beautiful leather-bound, marbled or printed notebooks.
For lovers of art and history, there’s also the renaissance fresco-printed covers of the Benozzo Gozzoli or our Florence Paper Journals. As soon as you hold these hand-crafted pieces in your hands, your fingers will itch to fill the pages with your innermost thoughts.
Enrich your life through self-expression
Our luxury pieces come in a range of sizes from small A6 pocketbooks to larger-sized A4 formats, so there’s a design ready for every purpose. Whether it’s to carry in your handbag for important notes, or for sketching the view while you’re on your travels, you’ll love this fusion of beauty and practicality.
All our designs contain premium quality watermarked plain ivory or lined paper that is acid-free and fountain pen-friendly, easily anchoring your thoughts and ideas down on paper.
Many of our pieces come packaged with their own dedicated box, where you can safely stow your memories away for future generations and perusal. The package is perfect for gifting, either as is or with an elegant fountain pen from our collection to complete an all-inclusive art set.
