Natural Moleskine Classic Notebook Leather Cover
You're looking at a leather cover made for the Moleskine Classic Notebooks. The cover features an opening on the right of the cover to be able to use the original elastic band of the notebook for the closure. The compartment on the left of the notebook allows room for loose papers and notes, the front flap of the notebook would also fit inside if you have a softcover.
The cover is made from natural vegetable tanned leather which darkens over time and develops a unique caramel color patina. Stitching is machine stitched. Edges are burnished and finished.

About the leather:
Made from wonderfully tanned vegetable tanned cow leather. Vegetable tanning is a traditional way of tanning using tannic acids naturally found from plant species. The natural appearance before painted, has a slightly brownish tinge over a beige color, with a natural, woody and earthy smell. Due to the nature of the tannins, a unique patina will develop and "carmelize" over time.

The Classic cover arrived today and looks great. The Italian leather is smooth and supple, and the light cream color is very attractive, though I'm sure it will darken with age. ALL of the edges were carefully and completely burnished, even the thin edges at the top and bottom. Not many other companies take care of the details like that. The overseas delivery time was not as long as expected -- ordered on July 17, received on August 5.. The only negative is the lack of a pen holder (hence the four-star rating instead of five). A pen holder, even if it's only an elastic band at extra cost, is almost a necessity. I gave the cover to my daughter-in-law, who will use for note taking at church. I'm sure it will last her a long time.
