Distressed Leather Notebook with pen (A5)


A5 refillable notebook cover. The product is handcrafted from premium Italian oiled leather from the Tuscan region.

      Just received my notebook cover, it was all that it seemed on the website. Lovely condition and packaging and just what I was looking for too. Even the pen is a good writer. I’m sure it will be the home for a number of my notebooks in future. Thank you Mishnoc!

      This will last to the end of my days. Have been looking for a weatherproof cover for my gardening notes and this is it. Beautifully crafted and packaged it is a perfect gift to myself as it would be to a loved one. The added bonus of personalising it means I shall never lose it. Everyone who knows me, will know it’s mine. Many thanks.

      I can’t even explain how beautiful this notebook is in person. The leather is exquisitely crafted, it feels like a luxury item that you’d think would cost twice the price of what it does. Even down to the packaging, it’s was a gift that went down so well. I’m thrilled with it and will definitely be ordering from Mishnoc again

      I have been very pleased with this although – through my own fault – I thought it would be Moleskine notebook size. (Would suggest you make one to this size as well as this latter variation is probably more popular than A5 these days or am I missing something)

      Nevertheless great craftsmanship and I will buying more as gifts.

      Absolutely beautiful workmanship on these products. I bought one for myself a couple of weeks ago and it arrived promptly. The leather looked, smelled and felt wonderful. The quality of the materials and the skilled labour that went into it is apparent. I liked it so much that I bought another one for my friend’s birthday as she is a writer and spends most of her days with her head stuck in a notebook. I would absolutely recommend this as a gift to a loved one or as a treat for yourself.

      I was thoroughly delighted with this purchase. I opted for the A5 leather notebook cover with pen. I immediately switched to cover to my existing notebook but will save the included notebook that came with this for future use as it’s great quality as is the pen! My order was promptly delivered and I really enjoy using it everyday!

      Distressed A5 Notebook with Pen Holder.

      I only intended to purchase one as a Chrimbo present, but the quality of the bespoke product resulted in me buying five. Adding the recipients names to the Pen Holder is a really nice touch.

      Ordered this a belated birthday present to myself and it felt like my birthday all over again when I opened it! Beautifully wrapped in Mishnóc paper; and its canvas bag is perfect for carrying it around for work in my bag. The notebook cover itself is just perfection; you can feel the quality the second you take it out, accompanied by that lovely leather smell too. I had been worried that the pen holder might cause difficulty when trying to write with it flat open but it doesn’t! I chose to have it inscribed too, and I’m so SO pleased that I treated myself to it – an rud is annamh is iontach – what’s seldom is wonderful – and this truly is a wonderful piece of work!
