How this was made

Made from respectfully-sourced Italian vegetable-tanned leather, Laurel is free from harsh chemicals. Over time the luxury leather will develop a buttery soft patina.
The paper inserts are hand-bound by experienced artisans in England from a quality British paper.
Laurel has been thoughtfully designed and handmade by Hands of Tym, in Oxfordshire, England.

Using only the highest quality cuts, the leather will improve with use and age, developing a soft patina over time.
Natural variations are a product feature of this material and contribute to the individual style of the product.
The leather is free from harmful chemicals and biodegradable at the end of its life.
