I am Sharon of Mallory Journals and I make Luxury Hand Bound Leather and Cork Journals and Sketchbooks. I started making Journals when I needed a gift for my now husband and had a little bit of leather hanging around so I had a go. He must have liked it as he now has two Journals, one of which has been refilled several times! When we got married in 2012 I made a Journal each for the Best Men, Ushers, Bridesmaids etc. And a few extra which I sold quickly in my Etsy shop.
I am lucky enough to have a cosy Binding Room on the top floor of my house, where I can make as much mess as I like (and I do!) and then shut the door at the end of the day, ready to go back in the following morning. I love Binding, it really is very mindful and therapeutic for me.
Leather Journals are lined with beautiful decorative papers, including; Japanese Chiyogami Paper, Marble Paper, Indian Cotton Screen Printed Papers, Decorative Italian Papers and Maps from Vintage OS and Atlas etc. I use Cords, Beads, Ceramic Buttons and Elastics to close my Journals.
Cork Journals are Vegan, Eco-friendly and Sustainable. These cannot be lined with my papers, but they are so soft, tactile and the texture is so lovely that they don't really need it!
I LOVE making Custom Journals. My style of Binding allows for the Journal to be customised. I can expand the spine if it is going to have things such as photographs added to it, ensuring it doesn't go too out of shape. I can add more or less pages. I can use Cartridge, Lined or Dotted Pages. Leather Colour and Lining can also be chosen to suit. And the type of closure. All this means a Journal or Sketchbook made just for you!!!! Message me to discuss.
When I am not selling my Journals at Events, I sell through my Social Media and also through my two online shops;
I make Journals for everyone; Note takers, Daily Journal, for Work, for Projects, Planners, Students, Graduates, Artists, Memory Journals, Bujo, Creative Journaling, Travellers, Wedding Guest Books, Mums, Dads, Aunties etc.
