Every journey is not the same ; there are many paths one can take to any destination. Similarly, there are plenty of good reasons to choose a refillable journal or notebook.
From the purely practical, meaning that you can keep writing in your favorite book, to the eco - friendly mindset of avoiding an entirely new purchase by making the most of your reusable journal cover.

How to refill a leather journal?
Refilling your journal is very simple:
- First, open the front cover and remove the endpaper of the insert that is already filled from the cover sleeve.
- Then, pull the entire insert out from the back cover sleeve and your refillable journal cover is ready to accept a new refill insert.
- Place the back paper cover of your new refill insert into the back cover sleeve of your journal and, while bending the front cover backward - beyond flat, insert the front endpaper of the refill insert into the front cover sleeve.
- You are all set!
