The quintessential color, Old Fashioned is a classic that will go with everything. Earthy and tan on the inside with a creamy brown exterior, this notebook is one you'll hold onto for a long time.

With a medium weight leather, we're happy to carry this with us every day.
Sizing: Covers are sized to fit with a slight bit of wiggle room snugly but able to lay flat when opened. Because of Hobonichi’s standard sizes, sizing is available specifically to their line of items. Other covers for Bullet Journals or other sized journals are available, so please pick the size that most closely describes your notebook. Please provide the specific brand and size of your notebook, a link to the notebook is also sufficient (Scribbles That Matter, Leuchtturm 1917, Erin Condren Bound Planners, etc.). This line of covers only works for bound notebooks, and does not currently provide for ring-bound planners (Erin Condren, Emily Ley, Day Designer, etc.). For specific sizing help, please email email@example.com.
Pocket Information: Covers have one pocket available to them, either a Full or Wallet pocket, along with a front or back strap. The strap configuration allows for a flat lay and for natural movement of the notebook inside the cover. All covers use an elastic closure at the spine.
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.
