what is full grain leather?

Unlike other types of leather, the outermost layer hasn't been sanded away or corrected, meaning it's the strongest, highest-quality leather you can buy. Keeping the leather intact gives each piece a rich depth of color and variations in texture, including fat rolls or stretch marks. These are marks of quality. 

how will it age?

All leather products will age with time. This aging effect, called a patina, will darken with everyday use, but quality leather should not stretch out. A patina is a symbol of quality leather, as this process cannot be replicated artificially. 

As you use your journal, you'll notice darker areas on the front, where your hands come into more frequent contact, lighter areas on the fold, where the leather bends, and marks and scratches. The way you use your journal will transform it from one of many to one in a million, with a unique character and story of its own.  

how long can leather last?

All of Restwell's products are made with the highest possible quality standards. Every leather item you receive is tanned and finished and, with continued care, will last well over 100 years.
