Leather Pens

MADE TO ORDER

Ballpoints, Rollerballs and Fountain pens

Below are examples of my handbound leather pens. They all have metal fittings (not plastic).

Some have hand painted designs, embossing or pyrography and some I have kept simple for that timeless classic look, therefore, each style of pen will have two prices, one for plain and one for designed.

Colour charts for leather and thread colours can be found HERE

I may also have some ready made pens available to purchase and these can be found on my Shop page.

The story behind my leatherbound pens...


It started with a lightbulb moment one evening whilst thinking about my husbands hand-turned wooden pens. I wondered if it was possible to use leather instead of wood.  Before attempting to make one, I first did some research to see if leather bound pens were readily available, but I soon found that they were hard to find! There a few manufacturers of mass produced cheap bonded leather pens, but more importantly, handbound real leather pens were as rare as hens teeth!!

At first, the concept of making a leather bound pen seemed like a simple process, but I soon found out that there was actually a lot of work involved to get them to look spot on!

The other motivator for me to make these work was that I already made leather notebook and journal covers so it was really nice to also offer matching leatherbound pens to go with them!

A truly unique item!
