Diaries are ubiquitous now, but were few and far between when they were first used back in the second half of the 2nd century AD. It was during this time that a Roman Emperor wrote a book entitled "To Myself", displaying many characteristics of a modern day diary. In the Renaissance era, It became common for people to not only record events, but to write down their emotions and opinions about them. Celebrate the long line of history of diary-keeping and journal writing with this excellent Cahier Journal.
The leather we use, originating from our well-established supplier Compiel, is only Full Grain Leather, and if you don't know what that is, then make sure you're sitting comfortably. There are 4 types of leather, and they are not all the same in quality. You have Full Grain Leather, Top Grain Leather, Genuine Leather and Bonded Leather.
We'll start with Bonded Leather. It's more of an insult to call Bonded Leather a leather. It's basically lots of different parts of leather glued and pressed together to make one piece, it's cheap, not at all durable and it will fall apart within weeks. In short, it's no good and we are completely against it.
Genuine Leather is in third place in the running and is the layer of the hide that remains after the top is taken off for the better quality leathers. This surface can often be given a makeover with a finish, sometimes a spray paint that can give it the look of a better quality. Not something that happens in our house. Don't settle for this, you can do better.
Top Grain Leather is the second highest grade that you'll find. A leather taken from the top layer of the hide, that is then treated, sanded and refined. It's a good quality leather, but not good enough for Hide and Drink. You can still do better, though, go one more step higher.
Full Grain Leather is the best you can get when it comes to leather, there's no competition here, and Hide and Drink is its biggest fan. Full Grain Leather comes from the top layer of the hide, and has all of the grain, hence its name. It's the best leather than you can buy, and the only leather that we use. You can stop looking now, you've found the cream of the crop.
The tanning process is something that we take pride in. Our rustic leather is created through removing the hair, extracting the moisture, taking out the oils and, of course, the natural preservatives. The leather is placed in a large container filled with new oils, coloring, and preservatives, and there it takes on its new color and thus its new personality. The finishing process consists of pressing the leather with heated plates, hung up to dry and sprayed and finished with a sealer. Finally, it is pressed once more and then ready for its transformation, in which it is carefully handcrafted by the diligent locals of Pastores, Guatemala, where our workshop is located.
Beautiful and well made! Hope you’ll offer more colors!
Use it every day, sturdy and elegant.
Love this cover it was exactly what I was looking for. Great quality and looks amazing! Buying a second one for another journal!
Well made. Feels good to the touch. Quality.
This thing is awesome. It will fit any kind of small notebook and the waxed canvas is tough as all get out. I can put my fisher space pen in there too. Perfect!
Awesome tool belt. Plenty of space for needed tools and the quality of the leather is superb. Highly recommended!
This thing is tough and rugged. Carry everything from knives to pens, anything. Very nice.
These are great bookmarks. They make for a small classy gift for anybody, and are very functional. I would recommend them.
Very nice case, I use mine for thick mandolin picks.
It’s so beautiful I can’t bring myself to let my pup chew it up- so, he gets a bag of greenies and this gets hung over the door on his doghouse! Another beautiful, quality product from Hide & Drink :)
Beautifully crafted and tanned leather product.
Good shipping and amazing quality! Came in really nice packaging and extremely well made.
I got this one and another that looked a bit more leopard print. But still that cool, metallic, slightly patina look to it.
Gets compliments whenever someone borrows it. Would love to get more.
The craftsmanship is amazing! H&D wins again!!!
perfect pencil pouch
Love this dopp kit. Perfect for traveling
Excellent front pocket wallet.
Nice little case.
Well made. Why pay 50$ more for less quality?
Nice bag. Well made. Very soft.
Ever since purchasing my first Hide & Drink item (A medium size tool role) I have never been disappointed. Every item I've received is made with such a high level of craftsmanship and is built to last. I'll b honest though when I was purchasing this coin purse/flapjack I was a little bit pessimistic just because I've had similar items from different manufacturers in the past that just couldn't hold up for one reason or another. Mostly zipper malfunctions were the most common weak spot. But when I received this one from Hide & Drink I immediately knew it was built to last. The zipper is obviously made of a high grade thick metal and all of the stitching throughout is made to last. I've only had mine for approximately 2 weeks and it is breaking in nicely. I immediately stuffed it full with pennies and dimes and the more I play with it to break it in I've noticed that every couple days I can squeeze a few more coins in. Its obviously built to last a long time if not a lifetime. I can't wait to fully break in and soften up the leather. Another top shelf product by Hide & Drink. I reccomend using a high quality leather conditioner to assist with the break in process but that's totally up to you. I can't say enough good things about Hide & Drink as a company. I wish there were more companies out there that took as much pride in their respective trade or craft.
Sturdier than expected. Would definitely buy again!
Wasn't sure if it would fit my 14in legal pads as there were no measurements on the site, but it fits like a glove and then some. Fantastic portfolio. Love it.
Beautifully packaged & constructed with top quality materials as always... I keep coming back to H & D for gifts and, of course, gear for myself because they are always THIS GOOD! Thank you!
Nicely crafted knife roll but gets a little clunky when loaded with spoons, fish spat, basting brushes, and other tools. Maybe better used strictly for knifes? Other than that, this a well designed bag that can fit an array of equipment
Product is perfect size for carrying cash and a couple cards. Slim and non bulky. Dimensions are 7.75" x 3.5" (L x H)
The quality of the products, the design, the presentation, the service... all this makes Hide and Drink a great company. I'm using this leather roll for watercolor brushes because they didn't fit in my "barber roll", where I keep my calligraphy pens...Fabulous products overall!
The quality of leather never disappoints, good size pouch for a tablet, small notebook, or other miscellaneous items. Exact dimensions are 10.25 x 7.5 (L x H)
Good product ,Arrived on time , well made and accurately described
Perfect for hikes with my dog.
Excellent quality, full leather grain. Well tanned, looks great, is supple yet strong, and beats the pants off of the genuine leather belt I had bought only a few years ago. Like many belts, that genuine leather was made out of what was essentially card stock with a thin veneer of leather on top. The leather had been bubbling up and separating over the years, and would be pretty threadbare in another 5.
This belt from Hide and Drink? I can easily see myself wearing it another 50.
These leather bands work great (in fact, I'm wearing one right now). They're easy to adjust and will last longer than the elastic band I used before. They're also very classy and pair well with a set of dress shoes just as well as they would with jeans and sneakers. Typical high quality for H&D, and why I keep coming back for more of their products.
Nice and heavy, built to last. Looks great and feels fantastic.
Great array of products. Lanyards, luggage and my favorite, wine holders !!!
I purchased these Fire Mitts for my Father and they arrived perfectly! They are hand crafted and the quality is top notch; he absolutely loves them! I am looking forward to checking out other products in the future. Thanks for the lovely gift for my dad:)
The quality is superb. The leather is soft, but not too soft if you know what I mean. It fits more than I expected it to. I would recommend a buy and I probably will be buying another for myself for traveling.
Protects my expensive shades and looks classy
I am the envy of all my friends in the wet shaving community
Very nice! I use this as a wallet, I’m a locomotive Engineer and I need to produce my federal license often, it’s perfect to keep it in the outside of the organizer. Nice packaging and presentation.
I have another H&D key holder, but it is short and the keys fell out of some of my pants...well problem solved with this awesome lanyard from H&D!!! Had to buy it the minute I saw it and add it to my ever growing collection of rad shit from Hide & Drink.
$8.00 filled the zipper pocket of quarters. Hopefully no one will make me use it for defense. Very well made and will outlast the opponent. At 63, and a widow, bring it.
