✳︎ about this binder ✳︎
This is the smallest binder that I'm offering and it features the dainty and detailed roses all over, it's vegetable tanned very sturdy and thick leather, and I hand dyed it to soft purple shade that has a little antique smoky finish on lavender tone. To show the purple shade very precisely is always very difficult because of digital camera's nature (it often looks more bluish than purple), so I can say the actual color is much more tasteful than pictures. Very elegant and gentle antique lavender.
The inside is metallic light beige. I tooled on the pocket and the pen holder. The stitch is done with the bees waxed strong thread. The hardness of this binder is middle. It's not too hard (but really sturdy and very thick), but it's not very soft at first so it will be softer eventually. It's bendable and easy to handle. The more you use it, the more it gets flexible.
Since this is non colored natural leather originally, you can expect it to have darker color by aging while you are using it for long time, This is one of the loveliest things of this item, so I really wish the owner of this planner use this binder as long as possible.....I believe you can use it for so many years if you use it with care and love, and the texture will be much nicer and will have natural shine with your hands oil.
So I think this planner is for a person who wants to continue using one thing as long as possible until it's completely worn out (it's my style of using things), so it may not be for a person who wants to change their belongings often despite it's not used much enough, because it takes for a while until this leather starts getting more tasteful and becomes really "yours" one.
This binder lays flat - it becomes about flat when you opened it without putting hands on it. The stitch is bees waxed.
I made a matching leather tassel with leather petals as a charm.
4 pockets. The insides are completely lined with light beige liner fabric. This linning doesn't mean only for looking, but for reinforcing the entrance and the inside of the pockets not to be stretched or get floppy.
✳︎ about all my binders ✳︎
My binderers are totally designed and handmade and hand stitched by me. They are bendable (it's not like hard board binder) but still very strong and tough as it has a sturdy (but soft) pad inside. This pad never break like cardboard or plastic. I put it even in the belt, so it doesn't get worn out easily. Also since edges and corners are not wrapped by folded leather, but are cut and polished, so it's hard to get worn out easily by scratching.
