Reusable leather notebook and diary cover made in the UK from premium bridle leather


Our beautifully crafted cover will protect many years of future diaries and notebooks. Hand-made in Walsall by specialist leatherworkers for an impeccable finish.

A5 Leather Cover in Black bridle leather, designed and made in collaboration with Doe Leather. . Designed to fit perfectly around all Mark+Fold Notebooks and Diaries. The leather cover can be used again and again. It will only improve with age, as it takes on a patina with use. 

The leather pen loops are taken from Doe’s 70-year-old archive of embossed leather swatches, passed down now through three generations. Each of our leather covers has a unique colour loop, and special colour requests are subject to availability. There is a subtle elastic behind the pen loop, to accommodate a range of pen widths.

Hand-made in Walsall UK.

Why you'll love it

Great paper

It all starts with selecting the finest materials. We consider only sustainably-produced papers and consider everything from the feel of the paper in your hands, to its opacity, smoothness and resistance to feathering with fountain pen.

> Our Paper

Layflat binding

A good notebook should open flat without force, for a comfortable writing experience. Our specialist layflat binding combines thread-sewing with cold glue, to retain flexibility. The results speak for themselves — a book that is as robust as it is elegant.

> Our Layflat Binding

Minimal design

Our considered edit of timeless classics are designed to feel intuitive and unobtrusive. We want the design to feel almost invisible, whilst giving you the structure and prompts you need to get things done.

Best Cover Ever!

A quality leather cover for a quality notebook - what more could I want? Absolutely LOVED my Doe Leather cover - it's a beautiful chocolate brown that wraps around my Mark + Fold notebook perfectly. Love, love, love! I can't wait to see how the leather wears and tears with use over the coming years. I would definitely recommend!

For those who value a good notebook

The M+F notebook and Doe Leather cover (Brown) is beautifully presented. I always have a notebook to hand. Though I have a digital career the freedom of paper and pen remain unbeatable. My hand written / drawn notes structure my workflow so the availability of quality options matters to me. The Mark + Fold notebooks and cover hit the spot perfectly.
