Italian-Header

Italian Collection

The Italian line is defined by the fine hand distressed leather covers, the hand-torn edges, and the unique, old-word stitching and binding.

The Toscana:

The Toscana book is one of our most unique and sought after book styles.  It features a hand-stitched, exposed binding that uses a kettle-stitching process.

This stitching allows the binding to be open and yet retain the durability and flexibility of a traditionally bound book.   The covers are hand distressed and hand pressed leathers, and feature the option of text embossing and an embossed cover image.

The Roma:

The Roma book also features the same leathers and hand torn edges, but is bound with a hand-tooled leather spine, and special cover straps that are only found on this style.
