Our friends at Doe share our commitment to exceptionally high quality materials and make, and a pared-back aesthetic that lets the materials speak for themselves. From both angles, the idea of a leather cover for a notebook had been something in mind for some time, and we are very excited to reveal the outcome of our collaboration.
Limited edition of 24, each with a different embossed leather used for the pen loop, taken from Doe’s historic archive, dating back to the 1930s. Each variation is shown here, and requests for a specific one can be accommodated subject to availability.
The leather covers are designed to slot over the cover of all notebooks and diaries in the Mark+Fold range, meaning that they can be used time and time again and will develop a beautiful patina with use — bridle hide is a material that gets better with age.
Needless to say, the leather had to be the best — bridle leather, hand-waxed in the UK.
