The leather used at LeatherAndEarthCo is vegetable tanned leather. Vegetable tanned leather is tanned using natural ingredients such as tree bark in the tanning process. It comes in large sheets with all the natural grain of the hide. There will be veins, scars, smoother areas, and bumpier areas. Each piece is hand selected. This leather is used because it can be hand dyed to highlight the beauty of the natural leather. The velvety side of the leather is left untreated and natural, so chemicals will never affect the paper inside your journal. It also looks beautiful.
Some oil tanned leather is used because it is super soft and pliable for straps and other accessories made.

Caring for leather is very simple.
The more you use it the better it get! If you feel like it is getting a little bit dry rubbing a small amount of petroleum jelly on the area will go a long way.
Try not to get the leather wet. It will make the leather stiffer, and will especially affect the velvety interior.

Laura's work is beautiful! Her attention to detail and clarity prior to purchase was immensely helpful- I felt fully taken care of and that my vision was to become a reality. Laura- thank you! I am thrilled to share this beautiful, custom-made journal as a gift! Will certainly be back for more hand-made treasures.

Laura created a custom sized leather cover for a 5 year journal I purchased for my husband. All the journals online were either cheesy or did not look manly. I was surprised how difficult it was to find a simple leather bound 5 year journal! Laura worked with me on a solution from the very beginning. We first thought about having her create custom paper for the insert but then she agreed that I could purchase the journal from a separate company and she would create the custom cover. It turned out beautifully and she shipped it very quickly! I would use her again in a heartbeat and cannot wait for Christmas morning to give him this!! Highly highly recommend her shop!

Laura was absolutely amazing! I’d been searching for the perfect anniversary gift and found her products just a few days before the special date. I reached out to Laura and she responded quickly and that level of contact has continued throughout the process. My wife’s gift was perfect and Laura sent it out immediately. It got to me before our anniversary, and beautifully gift wrapped as well! She is great to work with, the gift was personalized and everything about it was quality! I will definitely be contacting her in the future for other special days!!!
