Leather samples

English leather, the finest in the land

Sitting with the samples trying to decide.. The brights are nice, summer colours?? Yellow, scarlet, pumpkin, moss and cerulean for some really vibrant hand bound journals.  I feel a plan forming…

About Harmatan Oakridge leathers

Some Odd Pages uses finest quality leather from Harmatan Oakridge tannery, a British company with an excellent reputation among specialist bookbinders for decades.  The skins are vegetable tanned, hand polished and finished revealing its natural beauty and richness.  The natural character of each skin is maintained so no pigment finishes are added and no grain correction is needed.  They are smooth and warm to the touch, subtly glossy with that lovely leather smell.  These journals age well and will retain its beauty over time and with gentle use.
