Start Bay Notebooks are handmade from 3mm thick full grain, vegetable tan leather. They are dyed through and coloured both sides and have a warm, slightly waxy feel. The through dying gives the advantage of being able to fix self adhesive pockets to the inside of the leather. Cut edges of the leather are burnished and hand dyed dark brown for an elegant finish. Both the closer cords and inner cords are hand sealed on their cut ends to prevent fraying. Just a few reasons to choose Start Bay Notebooks.
