about

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.

history

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 was founded as a commitment to sharing the idea that a habit of slowing down is actually the way to breath, dream, and create more space for what you really love.

JOURNALS

We hire independent leatherworkers across the United states, instead of a large-scale manufacturer, to hand make each journal.

Not only does this offer the ways and means to turn a artisinal passion into a sustainable form of employment, it also provides a superior, heirloom product that will stand the tests of time as users develop their new habit of journaling.

• Full-grain leather sourced from a premiere United States tannery

• Three different styles
(Classic, Flip, and Pocket)

• Three color options
(Natural, Tan, and Black)

• Refillable design, so this can be the last journal you’ll need to buy

• High-quality interior soft cover notebooks made with acid-free,
FSC-certified paper

• Smooth finish and rounded edges to match leather sleeve.

JOURNALING PROMPTS

We partner with empathetic leaders who possess a specific expertise to write journaling prompts. Consisting of twenty questions centered around a skill or behavior, our prompts engage the user to reflect on their relationship with that theme while they develop a habit of journaling.

We want our journaling prompts to act as flashlights, not maps. A map tells you exactly where a place is and how to get there. A flashlight simply illuminates your path, improving your ability to make smart decisions about which way to go.

Our goal isn't to have you understand a specific topic more; our goal is to have you understand yourself through a topic as you spend the necessary time uncovering these hidden parts of who you are and who you want to be.

• Partnering with industry leaders Joshua Noom (illustrator), Grizel Caminas (backpacker, thru hiker), and Hayley Garnett (body postive influencer)

• Beautifully screen printed, perforated covers designed to be framed and viewed after prompt is completed

• Questions that only ask you to think; not try to get you to arrive at a certain conclusion

community
driven

Even though we are a small team, the reality is the Restwell community isn’t. And community isn’t merely a buzzword we like to use, but something we’ve intentionally placed at the core of Restwell.

Simply, Restwell intentionally does not function without community.

We partner with individual leatherworkers to make our journals. Without them we don’t have the kind of high quality journal that stands the test of time.

We partner with empathetic leaders to write prompts on topics specific to their expertise. Without them we don’t have the kind of focused and thoughtful prompts needed to help people slow down and create space for what they love.

In the end, we don’t want a machine to produce a product, but a community that champions the idea of a life lived slow.

target
audience

The more crowded our lives become, the more we find people searching for ways to slow down. You see it in the resurgence of minimalist philosophy, popular books like Essentialism or Digital Minimalism, the fame of Marie Condo, and even purchasing trends like vinyl, polaroids, and urban chicken coops.

The accepted lifestyle is only getting busier, but people are looking for relief.

This is our target audience: people who are ready to hit the pause button, however brief. We believe that our promotion of a habit over just a product will offer tangible help to people searching for a change of pace.
