Cases & Accessories

We began this part of our adventure with a needed leather notebook cover. A second skin for your Large Moleskine® Notebook (5 x 8 ¼”) that itself will become an elegant heirloom. It is an excellent value and will provide exceptional service. We used our regular English kip, a thin very tight-grained leather that is exceedingly durable. This hand cut cover features extended inside cover flaps to completely eliminate the
“Cover Bump” normally encountered with slip on covers. The rear inside flap has been slit to allow use of the elastic closure Moleskine® made famous. Both front and rear inside pockets are sewn far enough to be secure, but allow wide opening to provide additional storage for loose papers and easy access to the pocket at the rear hard cover. Our cover also features an inside trim strip along top and bottom edges for stability and extra durability. The stitch line is tapped down to close the needle holes, “setting” the stitch for extra security. We apply a light coat of pure Neatsfoot oil to lubricate the leather fibers and hand-burnish the rounded edge to reduce fraying. Our wax based finish is applied last. This seals the surface to repel dirt and allows buffing out of light scratches. A lightly dampened towel will remove common surface dirt. We recommend moderation in the use of any cleaning product. Avoid anything that smells of petroleum byproducts.

The use of this cover will provide excellent protection to the Moleskine® and gain character through a useful life of many years. Initial production will include serial numbers stamped inside the front cover next to our well-known Gfeller Casemakers cartouche. This mark has denoted items of exceptional quality and rugged durability since 1946. We are indeed proud to offer this addition to our line of no nonsense products for professional and other discriminating users of leather goods.
