All Rustico products are made-to-order custom pieces. Their craftsmen have years of experience carefully designing and crafting each item. Colors, finishes, cuts, and stitching are designed and refined by true artisans who specialize in a fusion of old-world methods and simple, modern designs.
The key to artisan-based manufacturing begins with authentic materials. Rustico leathers are thicker weight top-grain cowhide, making each product a unique pieces that showcases the leather's aged and weathered patina. Random, beautiful, and natural blemishes add texture and variety to each product. The cotton-rag blended paper inspires writers and artists with hand-torn deckled edges and a slight texture, creating a satisfying hand-made feel. Rustico uses paper created from recycled post-consumer waste, adding texture, body, and style to their leather products. The papers make an excellent companion for any type of writing and drawing instrument.
