The Black Canvas' Travel Journal is a really beautiful and well-made little leather Traveler's Notebook! The linen-y lining inside is so pretty and I love that the notebook comes with 2 inserts and one wallet insert as well. Highly recommend!
Brilliant piece. Perfect to drop in my suitcase and use for any night out while travelling. Goes with everything. Beautifully made! Classy and eye catching
Nice product with good leather quality. But I would have like it more if full grain leather is used for product. Overall a nice product.
would give 4 stars for tan color pouch & 2 stars to navy one, as I had ordered 2 pcs, I could spot the difference bet the two, navy pouch had soft leather compared to tan, it felt like a refurbished pouch on comparing it with the tan one!
Beautifully handcrafted and the leather is so soft.
Love the colour and the hot air balloon charm.
Intersting and eco friendly packaging.
The strap could have been of a better quality . It's expensive for the product quality
It's appreciated that the product was delivered quick
I just wish it was just another 5mm taller in height. Notice my cash notes. Stick out. Quality is great; simple and elegany
I ordered customized passport covers to be delivered as a gift to a friend and reached out to the team via WhatsApp since I wasn’t in the country. I was pleasantly surprised by the ease of the process, quick turn around and perfect execution. Extra points for the lovely packaging and for agreeing to add in a personlized note.
Loving this product, great craft and well designed. Loved the packing and billing letter.
If you're wondering what to get someone who's traveling a lot and won't carry something large, you get them this perfect, unique, luggage tag... something they can always use, are proud to show off, and is made with great finishing as well. Oh and if you can't think of a great design yourself, the designers at TBC will always help you come up with something amazing. I would give this 6 stars if I could...
Whether purchasing them with the traveler's notebooks or just getting them separately, these notebooks are lovely. Very minimalistic outer appearance, with the tan leather piece in the corner giving it a lovely character. I bought them while on the hunt for fountain pen friendly paper, and it fits the bill quite well! Using slightly textured, heavy 100GSM paper, there was almost zero bleed through to the opposite side, with very little ghosting. The ink is readily absorbed into the page, which is great if you're a fast writer or a leftie. As long as you don't expect Tomoe River levels of shimmer and sheen with your favourite Shimmertastic or J. Herbin 1670 inks, this notebook will take everything else you throw at it and more!
Although it might look slightly expensive for an A6 notebook, the quality of the book and pages, as well as the nifty leather corner, speak for itself! I personally love the dot-grids, but ruled and blank versions are also available. If you're a fountain pen user, GET THESE!
For me, traveler's notebooks were synonymous with the Traveler's Company (previously known as Midori). After I went gaga over fountain pens and inks, the next obvious step was good paper in an organised, portable format. After a bit of searching, I came across The Black Canvas website, where I found, among a whole host of other leather products, these traveler's notebooks (TN's, for short). I am a bit hesitant to say how many of them I've bought since then; the number wouldn't really speak of my sanity very well, to say the absolute least!
The packaging is amazing, the product quality is top-notch and the whole transaction is handled with care. I do have some (very minor) gripes with the product, which won't affect my score of the product in any way. First, I wish the main, outer elastic band was a bit stretchier. Second, although the pen-loop is a welcome addition, it is a bit too narrow for my wider pens like the Lamy Safari/Al-Stars (the caps get stuck) and even the mid-section of the Pilot Metropolitans. It'll be perfect for Micron pens, Pentel/Pilot/Uni gel rollerballs and even fountain pens like the Lamy CP1, though.
But, those are purely personal gripes and very minor ones, that too. All in all, an excellent product that is made very well. Once again, I'm rather ashamed to say that I won't be able to control myself if TBC comes out with a TN in black or grey! Cheers!
I come to The Black Canvas for unique gifts that I can give friends and family, and am never disappointed. This piece was unique in it's design and very well finished, making it a gift that I'm sure will be remembered...
I’m carrying it everywhere I go, in all my expeditions around the globe! Love it.
Great concept! Finish could have been better for the price. There is only one button, so you cant adjust the strap after filling it inside hence thin wires fall out as it cannot be tightened.
