Discover the magic inside two covers! With our books in genuine leather.
Books are the most established medium of communication in our society and can give us a look back on a millennia-old history. Ancient Egypt gave us the first bound book in goat and sheep leather with pages made from papyrus, and this has evolved through the Middle Ages right up to the modern era. According to the traditions of bookbinding, we manufacture our Gusti Leather books from fine and high-quality finished leather. From notebooks or diaries to guest or sketchbooks - our products are versatile and distinguished by their completely individual appearance. Whether in a playful retro look or classic modern chic, we have something for every taste! While some books are unembossed, others are adorned with small patterns on the front cover.
"One should own a book that he loves, not borrow it"
What Friedrich Nietzsche already knew at that time is still valid today and applies completely to our books. Not only do they convince with their unique appearance, but they also inspire with their versatile possibilities and that "must-have" effect! Whether as a travel journal, photo album, for notes, thoughts or small sketches - your book is universally applicable. The handmade paper inside gives the book its final personal touch and it can become a real collector's item. The wrap closures ensure that your thoughts remain safely stored.
Buffalo hide, cowhide or goatksin - which leather should protect your notes?
Choose from three great different types of leather. Our bags made from slightly thicker cowhide and buffalo hide are robuster and sturdier. Our models in goatskin are, in contrast, more flexible and soften quickly with time. Each Gusti Leather bag is completely individual and has its own unique "fingerprint". Our "Gusti Leather nature" bags are natural products which are hand-finished and dyed following traditional methods in selected Moroccan tanneries. These products are tanned, dyed and oiled using plant and vegetable based solutions, and because of this, it can sometimes be the case that the bag retains a strong leather smell which quickly reduces with regular use. Small scratches and scuffs in the leather also prove the free-range nature of the goats we use for our bags. These can be easily removed with the gentle application of sunflower oil or beeswax, which also adds to the vintage look of the bag. If a stable yet stylish bag is what you're looking for, our "Gusti Leather studio" brand is perfect for you! Chemically tanned leather produced in certified farms gives our bags a special strength and makes them ideal for everyday.
