Just in case you've ever wondered about the rule of thumb for achieving success, consider this easy formula:

Come up with an idea ➔ put it down ➔ try to fulfill it ➔ try again ➔ and again ➔ enjoy your success!

Many psychologists suggest that when you write down your idea, you're already halfway to realizing it. The explanation is simple: now the idea is visualized instead of abstract. This encourages unconscious efforts to make it come true through clear and objective analysis of deadlines, obstacles, and additional assistance needed to achieve your desired result.

A brilliant thought suddenly crosses your mind, but oh dear! There's no place to put it down, and while looking for one, the Muse has faded. A journal notebook is designed to help you out when inspiration hits. Write, draw, sketch, outline, draft, compose—doodle or dream; plan or create; pioneer or release your emotions after a bad day—do whatever you want, and don't think about your age because that's your personal space of imagination. Write as if no one's watching. It’s always at hand so even when trying to fall asleep and suddenly hit on a fabulous idea—a notebook is right there for you to hold your genius thoughts securely. And definitely, you won’t forget them till morning.

I love taking advantage of modern high-tech planners, but personally, there's something so satisfying about crossing items off my to-do, to-have, to-go, and to-read lists with a pen.

Notebooks are versatile daily assistants that can be used by anyone:

  • Students can use them for taking notes during lectures
  • Moms or grandmothers can keep new recipes in them
  • Secretaries can jot down important messages for their bosses
  • Teenagers may use them to keep a diary
  • Responsible workers can use notebooks to record meeting agendas attentively
  • Both beginning and professional poets will find them useful for jotting down marvelous (or not-so-marvelous) poems

It's also a wonderful gift for your loved one – simply jot down some compliments or a love confession to melt their heart.

These precious daily essentials require great protection. Hidemont takes pride in crafting leather journal covers for your place of inspiration. Keep in mind that our leather covers collection is perfectly designed to fit the most popular notebook brands like Moleskine, Leuchtturm, Field Notes, and Hobonichi, and we recommend double checking the size chart to make sure the chosen cover won't be either too tight, or too loose. Also it's important to mention that all our leather covers (except for the set of Hidemont's kraft notebook and leather cover) are sold without notebooks.

 

Moleskine

 

Moleskine is an Italian company that produces high-quality journals with a variety of page types including blank, ruled, dotted, and squared. Consider your daily needs and choose between hard or soft-covered notebooks in different sizes (pocket, pocket daily, large, large daily/expanded, XL, etc) available in various colors such as black, blue, brown, yellow, red, and green).

These useful everyday companions have the following distinguishing features:

  • Page with "In case of loss" notice
  • Tabbed sections
  • Essential travel info
  • Stickers for agenda customization
  • Ribbon bookmark
  • Elastic closure
  • Rounded corners
  • Inner back pocket for loose notes and tickets
  • Ivory-colored, acid-free, water-resistant paper
  • The hardcover, even for the smallest sizes

We offer a variety of leather cover models for Moleskine notebooks, each with unique functionality. From our classic covers with a main compartment and convenient cut for a notebook elastic closure to more advanced options with extra pockets for credit cards, extra items, and a pen holder.

There is another model of cover that offers ultimate functionality without compromising on simplicity. In addition to the main notebook compartment, you can take advantage of our improved pen holder that adjusts to the pen diameter, accommodating pens up to 0.7" (2 cm) in diameter and extended internal leather sections that allow you to write evenly across the pages.

Leuchtturm

 

Leuchtturm is a German brand, and at first glance, it may appear similar to Moleskine. However, there are significant differences between the two. The price is one of the most noticeable distinctions – Leuchtturm's products are considerably cheaper without compromising on quality. Leuchtturm offers journals in 4 formats: Master, Medium, Pocket, and Reporter pocket. Additionally, consider the key features that set Leuchtturm apart from Moleskine:

  • Table of Contents
  • Pagination
  • Ink-proof paper
  • Option to get two ribbon bookmarks instead of one

Just like Moleskine, this notebook also features:

  • Acid-free paper
  • Elastic band
  • Expandable back pocket
  • Stickers for labeling

 

Hobonichi

 

Hobonichi is a Japanese notebook producer known for its line of journals. While their traditional notebooks contain mostly square pages, the company has recently introduced a new collection of blank notebooks with multi-colored sections for organizing different topics. However, it's important to note that Hobonichi notebooks feature extremely thin pages that may not be ink-proof or water-resistant.

It's inconvenient for me to take notes among endless Japanese hieroglyphs without English translation.

We have designed a leather cover for both Leuchtturm A5 and Hobonichi Techo journals, similar to the one made for Moleskine, but slightly wider to fit the notebook's dimensions.

Field Notes

 

Field Notes is an American manufacturer of daily planners, and I'd describe their notebooks as a perfect embodiment of minimalism. They feature a craft-themed cover, stiff page sheets, and rounded corners with no unnecessary extras.

It's incredibly compact at 3.5" x 5.5" (89 x 140 mm), making it easy to fit into any bag while still providing ample space for your thoughts with its 48 pages. Notably, Field Notes is a trailblazing company in produces notebooks designed specifically for left-handed individuals.

Frequent users of Field Notes will appreciate our durable leather covers, designed to enhance your lifestyle.
