Our leather journals for men are built for those who value the thoughtful, the cerebral. They're for the daydreamers and the thinkers. Those that think profoundly.

We hold a range of complete vintage leather bound journals and also leather journal covers.

Quality and Craft

At The Real Leather Company, we take pride in our exceptional quality. Each journal is expertly designed by skilled artisans. Using only top-notch leather sourced from sustainable suppliers. We care about every detail. Ensuring you receive a product that looks stunning and lasts long.

Our leather bound journals are made with only full grain leather or top grain leather. There's no faux leather around here. We use only the very top (the highest quality) of the animal hide. Meaning the items on this page will develop a rich, natural patina over time. Your leather travel journal will take on a unique look. As the hide develops it will show all the signs of the adventures you've been on. 

Marks will show up on full grain leather (just like they would on our own skin!). But we prefer to think of these as the character of your adventures. Whilst the pages of the journal will hold memories you can read in a beautiful fountain pen. The leather skin of the journal will hold memories you can really see. That's the reason why it's hard to beat a personalized leather journal for men.

Leather, being a natural material, carries its own unique character and charm. Over time, the journal develops a patina, telling the story of your journey alongside it. Embrace the authenticity of leather. Watch your journal age gracefully, reflecting the memories and experiences it holds.

Functional and Durable

Our journals go beyond just looks. They're designed to be practical and durable. With sturdy bindings and high-quality pages, they can withstand your daily writing adventures without falling apart. The lay-flat design makes writing effortless and comfortable.

These journals will hold up better than anything you've used before. As we use the top layer of the hide only. This makes men's leather journals more durable and stronger. This ensures that they'll last a lot longer than a basic paper made journal diary.

Full Grain vs Top Grain Leather Journal

Looking for something that will develop a character over time? Go for a full grain leather journal. This type of leather is taken directly from the animal and put on to the journal. It's notoriously difficult to work with, but is the toughest leather available. No chemical processes are permitted, so each one is completely unique. No rough edges are removed here. Think of these as personalized leather journals for men.

If you are looking for something a little more uniform, we'd recommend top grain leather journals for men. Chemical processes are permitted here, so you'll notice these have blemishes removed and will look a little more uniform. That does not tend to affect durability much though. You'll still find top grain leather will hold up incredibly well over the long haul.

Style and Elegance

Our journals boast timeless style and elegance. Whether you're writing a journal, sketching, or taking notes, our collection offers a touch of class to every page. The rich texture of leather complements any style. Adding a sense of luxury to your writing experience.

We carry a range of colors in this collection, with both brown leather journals and black leather journals available.

There's something magical about putting pen to paper. Our journals inspire creativity, providing a canvas for your imagination to flourish.

Can leather journals get wet?

Leather journals generally have water resistance, but are not fully waterproof. Real leather has some natural water resistance, but excessive exposure to moisture can still cause damage.

Wherever possible, avoid damp or moisture on your leather goods. We know this is not always possible. So if your journal does get wet, here's what to do.

If you spill something on it, blot away the moisture with a clean dry cloth.

Caught in a rainstorm? Let your leather good completely air dry. Do not use a heat source to speed up the drying as this can damage the leather. Stuff the item with newspaper to help the bag keep its shape. This also helps to absorb moisture from the inside.

Taking proper care and precautions will help maintain the quality and longevity of your leather journal.

How do I clean my leather journal?

Treating a real leather journal with care can extend its life by years.

We recommend the following to care for your leather journal:

Always wash your hands before caring for leather. Oil from your hands can easily transfer to leather hide.

Once a week, we recommend getting a soft, dry (or slightly damp) cloth. Then briskly sweep the leather. Don't forget the inside too! Use a cloth to wipe down the lining and remove any dirt or residue.

Use a good leather cream or conditioner once or twice per year. This will prevent yourleather item becoming dry or cracked. If you live in a dryer climate, you may need to do this more often.

Simply apply the cream to the entire item with a cloth and rub off any excess. We recommend using our all natural leather cream found in our store for our bags.

Be sure to take the time to care properly for your leather. If you do, your item can have a good, long life.

How much is a leather journal?

Real leather journals are generally more expensive than notebooks made from other materials. Prices can vary a lot depending on size and quality. Our collection of leather notebooks can go from $50 up to $200. You can understand why some are unsure if they are worth the money. The reason is because leather bound journals last a very long time. Decades in many cases.

Therefore, if they last longer they are a better investment. They will actually save you money in the long run. This is because you won’t have to keep replacing your journal after a few weeks. Full grain journals for men and top grain journals for men can last a very long time.

Why are leather journals so expensive?

Items are usually more expensive when made from real leather. This is because real leather is very expensive to buy and work with. It takes special skill to be able to craft leather goods. The artisans we work with have often passed down this skill for generations.

Crafting a leather journal takes time, care and effort. Happily though, the result is worth it. Real leather journals for men will last longer than other materials. It can be a buy for life purchase.
