What is your faux leather journal made from?

We use 100% cruelty-free PU leather. It’s Artifical Leather, a leather style material, but not made from animal skin. A 100% PU leather is normally made of polyurethane, polyester, cotton, nylon, or rayon. We don’t use bicast leather,bonded leather or split leather. These types of artificial leather are not 100% cruelty-free. They’re artificial leather with fabrious part from coewhide, but with polyurethane layer on top the leftcover of genuine leather.

Is faux/vegan leather durable?

For a writing journal it is durable. And it cost much less than the genuine leather. The non-absorbent feature of faux leather turns to an advantage for a paper product like writing journal. But for shoes, it’s less breathable, it might not be able to withstand the daily wear and tear.

Does valery faux leather journal have plastic / chemical smell?

We use the best faux leather we could find to make our journals. The genuine leather smell is a chemical smell too. Many chemicals are used to process faux leather and Genuine leather. But the smell won’t linger long on premium 100% PU leather.

Even the material itself has chemical smell during the manufacturing process, after the long manufacturing process of the writing journal and finally delivered to you, the smell has long gone. Let alone the small size of a writing journal, it doesn’t have big size as a jacket or sofa.

Is the paper fountain pen friendly?

The paper is friendly to most of the pens and inks. But it’s not for watercolor and markers. We’ve tested some fountain pens, fineliners, mildliners,brush pens,sharpies,rollerball pens on the paper.They all did quite well with no feathering,light ghosting, and some ink bleed through only with Sharpie permanent marker, and stub nib fountain pen with very wet ink.You may check our pen test here

See how our customers said about our faux leather and paper

The pre-vegan in me is reminded of my past "Easy Rider" fringed leather jacket days while unwrapping/re-wrapping the very long faux-leather strap. Texture and feel of this object of art fooled my meat-eating son-in-law who gave me a look like I had betrayed the movement AND MYSELF by purchasing leather. Soft, supple and yearning to be filled with my notes for my next novel!

This is exactly what I was looking for. Lots of room to write but still small enough to carry around daily. The quote is a perfect addition and goes perfect with what I am using this journal for. The “leather” color is gorgeous. The wrap around closure makes this feel special and hand crafted. I would but again for myself and for gifts! Awesome product.

Color was true to the pictures. Really nice feel and looks like it will hold up over time. The included paper is also very nice and a nice creamy color. Would recommend!

GORGEOUS! Leather is soft and does not look fake. Pages are durable and do not bleed through.

This is a beautiful journal. The pages are numbered and there is a table of contents. The vegan leather is soft, and there is no bleeding thru the paper. The A5 size fits perfectly in my totebag. I was looking for a journal that I wanted to keep close by and use frequently, and this is the one. I have already purchased a refill notebook as I plan to use this journal for years.

Happy to find a quality (vegan) leather, cute journal! I absolutely love this journal! Secret pocket, bookmark ribbon, pen holder, blank or lined paper refills available for purchase, that all wraps up prefectly! I bought one for myself and another for a gift! Highly recommend and I’m sure I’ll buy more in the future!

Love. Love. I am particular on journals I buy myself. I prefer a specific soft “leather” like texture & when I ordered the item, I was unsure how the journal would feel by looking at the product on a screen. When the journal arrived, I was relieved that it matched my preference. I also prefer to purchase a journal with refillable pages as I have a hard time imaging using a beautiful journal as 1 & done. So this journal met the parameters of not being 1 & done. Lastly, it is a beautiful journal that I enjoy writing in.

Gorgeous !Sunflower has always been my favorite and that was the only reason I bought this. I thought it should be plastic feel like all the faux leather ones I've had.. but it turned out to be " my precious". Picture does nothing for the actual quality.

I got this journal for a secret sister gift. All I know is that she likes to journal so I thought this is a nice gift for that. The leather is soft and it’s a nice size. Not too much paper and not too little.
