I, too, like the idea that someone can take a couple pieces of leather and with some trimming and stitching make a moleskine notebook cover, but this kinda more looks like it was inspired by the days of 5th grade art class and the spirit of charging $40 for something no one actually needs. The flap isn't finished, the buttonholes are just slits with holes punched at the end, there's no place for a pen or pencil -- I mean, if you're going to make something like this so people can feel like explorers in the bush, realize that you're trying to emulate a period where workmanship was prized. Make it look like someone spent longer than 10 minutes fashioning it, FFS. Have a little pride.

well, yeah, but a lot of leatherwork that people do at home is simple and fairly rustic. Most leather finished goods I see with buttonholes have some degree of stitching around them. I mean, if I'm making it myself for myself, rustic is probably ok, esp. if the leather's stout. But if I'm paying forty clams for what is a fairly small rectangle of fairly thin leather, I'd hope to see some actual craft to the piece. Stitching isn't all that expensive and they're already stitching the piece. I have owned one moleskine notebook, briefly, once in my life. I never looked at it and went 'this thing needs a leather cover.' I might not be the target market for this thing. Who knows.

Vegetable tanned? Restore with neatsfoot oil? Think about it: If you could get a tan from vegetables, why are tanning beds so expensive? And have you ever actually seen a Neat? No, you haven't! So how do you know they have feet? You don't! Stop falling for MD's hype!

$40 is an awful lot to pay for a flap of leather with bad stitching and unfinished edges.

It says moleskin, 5”x3.5”. And for that reason, I’m out.
