The Bootstrap Journal

Cowboy Up!

Cowboy Up!

The bootstrap journal is made from the top of worn-out leather cowboy boots. The bottoms of the boots wear out, but the tops rarely do! These soft, lustrous beauties feature the intricate stitching of the original boot. They are perfect for capturing doodles, journal entries, project notes or lists. The soft covers make it easy to throw one in a bag, tote along on a trip, or leave handy on your counter or desk.

One of each boot’s original bootsraps is used as a closure with a heavy-duty snap to secure your writing or sketches.

What's Inside?

What's Inside?

Some Bootstrap Journals are lined with a soft leather, as shown here. Others retain the original boot’s intricate stitching on the inside and work fine unlined. The refillable journals hold three notebook inserts which can be removed and replaced easily. Each comes with three inserts and you may choose unlined paper, lined paper, undated weekly planner or undated monthly planner. Mix and match!

Easy to Refill

Easy to Refill

Refill the journal with Moleskine Cahier notebook inserts or purchase Just My Type inserts here. Either way, is is easy to devote one notebook for personal use, one for work, and one as a calendar—or three different projects. The sky is the limit in how one can arrange and personalize your written thoughts and sketches.
