    'Buttero' and 'Dakota' are the two smooth veg tans used, which are produced by neighboring tanneries in the Tuscany region in Italy. They have a medium-firm temper and matte finish. 

    Pueblo is a vegetable tanned leather from Italian tannery, Badalassi Carlo. It has a very pleasant rough feel that gives it its unique look. It will patina aggressively--the roughness turning into a lovely sheen within months of use. 

    Chèvre Crispé is a semi-aniline vegetable tanned goatskin from French tannery, Relma. Beautiful texture and vibrant colors make it easily the most luxurious option.

    Wax is a pull-up leather from the Badalassi Carlo Tannery in Italy. It's fully vegetable tanned and will develop lots of character with use.


    Standard font is limited to capital letters only (max 2 of the same letter). The old style font is smaller, but more expansive allowing for upper and lower case letters as well as numbers and symbols.

    Initials will be stamped in the inner bottom right corner for folding items and in the front bottom right corner for non-folding items, unless specified otherwise. For items with the mini pocket addition, initials will be stamped in the center.

    Please note that foil show may premature wear compared to the rest of the item.

    Please upload black-and-white JPG. Highly complex images will not be possible. Clearly defined lines work best. Alternatively, feel free to email the image to sales@leatherbound.ink at a later date.
