The gold standard in high-quality, refillable notebooks, the Leather Journal by La Compagnie du Kraft (also known as Le Kraft) is an investment piece that is built to last and provide years of use.
In the 1930s, La Compagnie du Kraft started making notebooks in France for forest rangers and lumberjacks. Crafted from leather and undyed kraft paper, they were built to be rugged and repairable.
Today, Le Kraft journals are still just as durable, and the thoughtful craftsmanship and fine materials that go into hand-making each of them have earned them a place in the hearts of fine stationery enthusiasts everywhere. Because they are made responsibly and can be refilled, they are also searched out by those looking to make eco-conscious choices for their personal, work, or school writing needs.
The “Cuba Libre” leather used for these journals is vegetable-tanned (chrome-free) and comes in a selection of colors inspired by the deep, rich tones of cigar wrappers. The unbleached kraft pages are perforated for a satisfyingly clean tear should you want to remove them.
With all of these great features, we feel the Le Kraft leather journal is a perfect fit for the Boston General Store collection of office stationery. If you are new to Le Kraft, we think you’ll be happy with the investment. If you are a Le Kraft enthusiast, we invite you to shop for refills and notepads here.
