shop consciously & with ease
Our marketplace is curated with goods by female small batch makers who we know & trust. We've done the research so you can focus on what you love--The Shopping, of course!!
Great adventures never really come to an end; you will always have the memories made, especially if you establish the practice of recording these memories. Social media sites allow us to preserve visual memories, but some things are better left for private consumption. With a Red Pen Travelers notebook, you can record your experiences fully and personally, thereby turning fleeting impressions into a lasting record.
The custom butterfly design on our notebooks was created by Toni Gaitlin in response to our vision of a world in which women can be who they have always been - who they are already are - who they want to be. The combination of intention and inevitability depicted in the butterfly's escape into the world serves as a graceful reminder of the journey we are all required to make, if we wish to live authentically.
These leather notebook covers have smooth, rounded corners and burnished edges, creating an accessory that will last for years and only improve with age. Natural variations in each piece of leather means the notebook you receive is not only one-of-a-kind, but is a true work of art. Four durable elastic straps will hold whichever notebook you choose to put inside firmly in place. Choose from the following luscious colors:
- MARIGOLD ~ fits a notebook insert sized 5" x 8.25" (such as Moleskin Cahier)
- MAHOGANY ~ fits a notebook insert sized 3.5" x 5.5" (such as Field Notes)
- ESPRESSO ~ fits a notebook insert sized 3.5" x 5" (or a passport!)
about the maker
We approached Toni, from Red Pen Travelers, about a collaboration for our magazine product spread because her notebooks were so unique and customizable -- a perfect fit for our ideal client who would choose meaningful over mass-produced any day!
Upon getting to know Toni better, we decided that her spirit and spunk were a much-needed component for our ongoing welfare. Her brand has personality all over it and she lives for collaborating. Basically, we were made for each other.
The samples for this particular collaboration, which you see pictured above, confirmed what we already suspected: we'd discovered a hidden (and very necessary) gem. From the supple, genuine texture of the leather to the detailed + meticulous handicraft, these notebooks will not dissapoint even the most particular of buyers.
