I have had a leather-covered journal for years. I have spilled on it too many times and just wanted a fresh cover. I got one of the vegan covers from Soho and have found it repels liquid better than leather, but it is in no way as durable. I am not sure why vegan type journal covers are made to look and smell like leather when there is an abundance of leather on hand. Soho is good for spills, bad for longevity.
I love the feel of these journals. The cover is so soft and beautiful. Just the sight of one makes me wanna write. With the mountains one, I now have 4 journals, each one for a different topic. Love these journals :)
I bought this journal as a replacement for a real leather,non-refillable one I bought for my daughter's 50th birthday. She will use it for everyday journaling.
She loves her mountains East coast & West.
I got one for my daughter... She loves it... Her husband liked it so much that I got one for him!
The case is thick lending a high quality feel in your hand. A well made journal to add to the bookshelf.
