    Designed to be carried with you on your daily travels or further afield, the premium leather ages beautifully and is designed to last a lifetime.

    mix & match

    choose your insert

    The Traveler's notebook can function as a journal, sketchbook and place for your to-do and bucket lists all at once. Just choose the inserts that are right for you and the leather cover can house up to 3 different inserts at once.

    Each leather cover is made by hand in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Its simplicity is part of its appeal; roughly cut leather and a rubber band with a tin clasp. The inserts (notebooks and diaries) are made in Japan by MD Paper.

    There are many different types of insert to choose from. Anything from sketch paper to diary pages to stickers and card holders. Perfectly customisable.

    flexible & durable

    Lasts a lifetime

    Over time the leather quality on the Traveler's Notebook changes, with marks and scratches that carry memories of a life well-led. In Japanese culture these marks of wear and aging make the notebook more precious than ever.

    The Traveler's Notebook is a hard-working, multi-tasking journal that you will love for life. Just don't lose it!

    Traveler's Company | FAQ's

    Traveler's Co are one of USTUDIO's favourite and best selling brands.
    Below are some of the questions we get asked in store about their notebooks and other products.

    Traveler's Notebooks are a wonderfully flexible notebook system, allowing you to tailor your notebook to contain exactly what you need, from sketch pads to journals or dairy pages.

    A beautiful, robust leather outer to which you can add up to three refills at a time, choosing from lined, blank, diary, grid- even sticky notes. So instead of carrying around a sketchbook, agenda and notebook separately you can have all three within your Traveler's Notebook.

    Adding refills to a Traveler's Notebook is easy when you know how! You'll need your leather outer, your three chosen refills, and a pack of connecting elastic cords.

    To add your three refills to the outer, first open your fist and third refills to their centre page. Use a connecting elastic cord to join the two notebooks together. Then close the refills and place on the inside of the notebook cover so that they are spine to spine and connected by the elastic cord. Pull the refills apart slightly, pull up the elastic cord between them a little and slip in your second notebook, open to the middle page. That's all three refills securely attached!

    The sky, or should we say your imagination, is the limit! A Traveler's Notebook can be a journal, a sketchpad and an agenda all at the same time! You can use it for anything, from to-do lists to art to planning your week. It really is so compact and versitile.

    Traveler's Company say that you can fit three refills easily but in all honesty you can squeeze more in if you want to, it will just mean that the notebook is thicker. Obviously adding a folder will mean the Traveler's Notebook is a lot bigger when you start filling the folder up, whereas a sketchpad isn't going to change size! We'd say you can fit three to five inserts.

    Why do we still write journals?

    Writing a journal may seem archaic, but studies have shown that getting busy with pen and paper has many benefits to our technology-obsessed, extremely online selves.

    Professor James W. Pennebaker and his team at the University of Texas have conducted extensive research on the benefits of journaling.
