A big thank you to Martin and Jeanette from Leather Bound for donating their leather off-cut pieces to me.
In the next few weeks I will be thinking up ideas of cutting and engraving the leather pieces. I can’t wait to see the finished result, especially on the notepads!
I love their market stall in Greenwich, where they sell beautiful hand made leather bound notebooks in a vast range of colours and different types of leathers, traditional and modern. Martin is always friendly and very helpful in explaining the types of leather they use. I was impressed with the quality and could not resist in buying 2 of his notebooks. I think these would make lovely gifts, perhaps even more special with an engraving.
Visit them at Greenwich market on Wednesday and Fridays or go to http://www.etsy.com/shop/LeatherNotebooks
