TBC Traveller's Journal - Rustic Brown | A6
The TBC Traveller's Journal is made of supple, thick brown, oil pull up leather that will age beautifully with use. The single-fold leather cover features black elastic bands to hold notebooks on the inside, to keep the journal closed and as bookmarks.
The leather cover features a pen loop that's held together with a brass stud button. The journal comes with a PVC pouch that can hold ticket stubs, receipts, business or credit cards or any other small paper paraphernalia on one side and a zippered pocket for passports or important documents/money on the other side. Two TBC notebooks can be inserted into the journal that will be held together with an elastic band. The journal also features two attached bookmarks adorned with brass beads at the ends.
The journal also comes with an antique finish brass paper clip that can be used to keep any important documents on the top.
And finally, the journal comes wrapped in a cloth drawstring bag that you can use to keep the journal safe.
About the leather:
This leather is a beautiful, oil pull-up leather with natural textures and markings. When this leather is stretched or pulled, the color migrates and becomes lighter in the pulled areas. Hence, the name “pull-up” refers to this change in color. Drastic variations in light and dark areas increase as the leather is handled and stretched against the grain. As a pure oil pull-up leather, marks, scratches, and signs of wear will show and a rich patina, or shine, will increase over time. Please note, this is not a defect but a natural quality of these kinds of leathers.

I absolutely loved the brown TN cover from TBC. The leather looks beautiful and has a rich and a smooth feel to it. The antique brass clip that comes along is functional and also serves as a perfect embellishment. The page trackers are adorable. The two books in A6 (plain/ ruled) as inserts seem to serve the purpose, however I wish they made the dot grid also available as an option. The product is well crafted and is evidently made with love.
With their range of Traveller notebooks in pocket size, A5 and A6, they’re a name to reckon with and would remain my favourite to turn to for journal supplies. It would be nice to see TNs in standard size too sometime in the future.
My best wishes and a big Thank you to the TBC team!
With this journal, marks my first purchase with TBC and my first hand experience with Journal.
The leather is really soft and the craftsmanship on the Journal is really good. Will write my heart out in this Journal.
If you are a travel junkie, this Journal would prove to be a true friend to you.. A small suggestion, please use one notebook at a time and try fell the leather!!
Great work, Team TBC!!
Fantabulous .But a little big when comparing with Midori passport size
Love the quality of the leather journal. I write with a Pilot G2 roller ball pen and found the notebooks quite suited to it. The 100 gsm paper is also suitable for making simple, quick sketches.
The brown traveller's journal is a quality product. The leather cover is well-finished and has a rich touch to it. The two notebooks are of good quality too. I write with fountain pens and I was pleased to note that there was no bleeding and only a minimal amount of ghosting. Do note that the pen loop cannot fit a slightly wide-barreled fountain pen such as the Lamy Safari. Overall, the journal has quality craftsmanship and I am thrilled that it's an Indian made product. A special mention for the attentive and curteous customer service. The journal I ordered had a slight niggle with the elastic bands and the folks at The Black Canvas were responsive to my feedback. They took note of the issue, recalled the journal, fixed the problem, and sent it back to me in perfect condition. The experience was fuss-free and polite. Thank you.
