  • Hand Sewn

    Hand stitching is stronger and more durable than machine stitching. It also produces a great hand-made aesthetic.

  • Quality Materials

    Goods are made with full grain, veg tanned leather, hand stitched with waxed thread, and 100% recycled PET felt.

  • Custom Engraving

    Custom engraving on leather goods is a great way to add a personal touch and make the product unique whether for yourself or as a gift.


Replaceable Notebooks for a Sustainable Story

Leather notebook covers are the perfect way to protect your notes and ideas. With a replaceable notebook, you can enjoy your favourite leather cover for years to come, while also reducing your waste. As your leather notebook cover ages, it will develop its own unique character and story.

    So very happy with my leather cover. I love that it’s slightly bigger than A5 which allows me to use a A5 flip file in it. Thank you so much. I shall be ordering more.

    It's been a long time since I've experienced service like I have from The Great Break. They are passionate and caring.
