Kiki James Tuscan Wrap Journal

From Kiki James we have the Tuscan Wrap Journal. It is a leather bound journal available in several colours, in three sizes, with lined or blank paper. The beautiful example shown here is the chocolate bridle finish, in medium with lined paper.

Kiki Jones is a relatively new online retailer based in London. Their domain name was registered in 2005, so that provides a hint at their longevity. They state that they do welcome customers at their headquarters. Kudos to them for providing walking and public transit directions!

The first thing one notices is the box. At a time when generic plastic shrink-wrap has almost become a retail standard, the journal’s presentation is outstanding. The journal itself arrived tissue-paper wrapped, resting on a tissue cushion on the box bottom.

The journal itself has a wonderful smooth luxurious leather finish, and can be closed by double-wrapping a leather tie:

The back reveals a discreet embossing. “Handmade in England” is another welcome departure from today’s norms.

The journal is 21.6cm x 15.2cm, and the rules on the thick, creamy, paper are grey, approximately 6.5mm apart.

The outside is as smooth and rich as it appears, while the inside is rough with the journal firmly inset.

Just one of a number of leather writing journals from Kiki James, I am very impressed with the offering. My thanks to Kiki James for providing the item for this review.

  1. I have bought three of these as presents (with embossed initials) They are divine and everyone has loved them. They are excellent value for money. The boxes and tissue paper are the icing on the cake. And no …… I am nothing to do with Kiki James, just a genuinely satisfied customer :)

  2. If my mother had heard the noise I made when I scrolled down and saw this journal she would have slapped me! What would I do for one of these? Mama can’t read my mind thank god!
