Life is a lot of things, but mostly it’s just busy. This busyness is something we’ve
come to expect, make excuses for, and judge one another by. Restwell was
formed because we don’t believe it has to be that way. The things we love most
could and should be fought for. What fills our schedules—relentless scrolling,
overcrowded plans, constant streaming, and extreme workloads—are norms we
should push against.
But to reclaim what was ours takes intention.
One of the best tools we have is journaling. It gives us time and space to process
through what we care about, figure out why it motivates us, and how to enjoy it
on a deeper level.
Restwell creates handmade leather journals and journaling prompts to help
people slow down and create space for what they love.
Founded by a leatherworker and graphic designer, the idea of Restwell existed
years before it would ever leave the confines of our personal conversations.
Formed in a season of hardship and frustration, then refined through countless
late night walks and coffee table discussions, Restwell found its voice after realizing
the slowness of our journey was what gave us our strength.
While our lives and calendars had been filled with good things, we still felt worn
down. We began to realize even the good things we'd chosen were taking the
spot of better things, things that gave us meaning and rest and energy to create
the life we really wanted.
So no matter how long it takes, Restwell is committed to sharing the idea that a habit of slowing down is the way to breathe deeper, dream bigger, and create more space for what you really love.
