    Notebooks come and go but the Wingback Tuscan leather cover endures. Each cover can be customised with an inscription on the front and a personal message or inspiring quote on the inside sleeve. Made from naturally tanned full-grain Tuscan leather, any nicks or marks it picks up will smooth away to leave a rich patina, a subtle reminder of the journeys you’ve shared and ideas you’ve put down. Every Notebook Cover is made to order and hand stitched with heavy gauge thread in our London workshop, making it an ideal one-of-a-kind gift. Simply pick your leather, coloured thread and inscriptions to make it as unique as the person who’ll carry it.

    The Wingback Notebook Cover is available with either the Karst Stone Paper A5 Notebook or Moleskine Classic Hardcover Notebook. The Karst Stone Paper is an environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional pulp paper, using 60% less energy to produce, while Moleskine's design is inspired by the legendary notebook used by artists and thinkers of the past. Karst's notebook is slightly wider than Moleskine's. Choose your notebook option from the drop down menu above. 

  • Leather: Full grain, vegetable tanned, environmentally certified leather from Tuscany, Italy.

    Thread: Coloured heavy gauge Gütermann thread from Germany, Europe.

    Pouch: Oeko-Tex double thickness cotton from Poland, Europe.

    Finish: Laser cut, hand-stitched, bevelled, burnished and packaged in London, UK.

  • Dimensions: 155mm x 215mm x 26mm with a Karst notebook inside, 142mm x 215mm x 22mm with a Moleskine notebook inside

    Capacity: Designed to fit either the Karst Stone Paper A5 Notebook or the Moleskine Classic Hardcover Notebook

    Considerations: The leather will pick up subtle marks and scratches over time but these will smooth away to develop a rich patina, serving as reminders of the journeys you’ve shared and scrapes you’ve survived. For tips on looking after the leather click here.

    Engraving: For bold inscriptions, pick a lighter leather colour. The darker the leather, the more subtle the engraving.

Does not fit an A5 Karst notepad

I had previously read a review that said this did not fit but the response was that the was because it was a moleskine notepad. The Karst one was supposed to fit but it does not. Difficult to see any information on the website as to how and where to return this.

Hi Tim,

I've just sent you a message about your notebook and cover issue. You ordered a Karst notebook and a Moleskine cover which are different sizes.

Take a look at the options I've sent over and get back to me so we can get this sorted for you nice and quickly.

I ordered and paid for a wallet over 3 months ago and it never arrived.

There is no way of following up on this order. I would have expect some communication about the delay but there seems no way to speak to anyone about this.

Hi Neil,

Thanks for getting in touch. I've sent you a couple of emails regarding the leather colour you had chosen being sold out. I emailed you last on 4th April but haven't yet received a reply. Please can you get in touch with me so we can get your order made and sent out asap.

Many thanks,

My Wife was Delighted

I bought the Notebook Cover in Chilli, with a suitable engraving, for my wife as a Christmas present. She is delighted with the quality of the leather and the colour.

Where is the pen holder?

Would buy it if they add a holder for my mechanical pen

Not sure

I recently received the Cognac coloured notebook as a gift from my colleagues. The quality of the leather seems pretty good. But I'm not sure if the fit is correct as the cover does not close completely when a Moleskine notebook is placed inside. Also, the colour seems darker than the one advertised on the website.

Hi Terence,

Thanks for the feedback, while we do try and keep colours as consistent as possible, colours can change slightly from hide to hide. The fit issue seems to be that the notebook cover is the Karst size, but the notebook itself is a Moleskine which is much smaller. I'll get in touch with you via email and arrange a Karst replacement.
