To make your notebook wide (5 strings), please purchase our WIDE ADD ON addition to your order.
Leather: Catalina is a bright navy that is just the perfect amount of subdued for summer. We see it paired with nautical themes or galaxy themes, this versatile notebook is a staple we're happy with. On the thinner side of this release, it's a nice and light leather that will mold to your inserts. It is a part of the Summer Sunset collection, one of four sanded suedes released for this collection. It will not undergo burnishing, due to its sueded nature.
Upgrading from Regular (3 Strings) to Wide (5 Strings) is $10. To upgrade to wide, please add our Wide Add On to your cart and specify which notebook it refers to in the item notes.
Stitching: North Branch offers two forms of stitching, Machine and Hand. Machine stitching is done on a vintage Singer 66 sewing machine and Hand Stitching is done on a pony with a manual saddle stitch North Branch has perfected. Hand Stitching is recommended for the highest quality, longest lasting product. Machine Stitching orders will be processed more quickly due to the swiftness of a machine, but delivers a lower quality stitch that will deteriorate more quickly over time than Hand Stitching. Machine Stitching orders are processed in about 4-6 weeks while Hand Stitching orders are processed in 8-10 weeks.
Additional Notes: All products are made from real, high quality leather and may show unique markings! Variations in stitching are normal, although North Branch strives for uniformity, there may be a stitch that doesn't line up exactly. These are all products of being a hand made product from natural leather. This listing is for the cover only, and does not come with any paper products or inserts. Stitching and elastics are matched as best as possible, but come from different vendors, depending on stitching method and elastic options so coloring may be slightly off. Please refer to the Materials page for threading color photos.
