Gfeller Moleskine covers in pre-production

2803

Steve Derricott of Gfeller Case Makers reports that his firm will be producing leather Moleskine covers after the success of a prototype created for Paul Saffo.

Yes,
we are going to be making Moleskine covers. As soon as we have tooling
costs in hand we will post prices and expected production schedule. We
will start with a cover for the Large Notebook. We anticipate being
able to offer this in our Natural Russet, Chocolate and Black calfskin.
Other size Moleskine covers are in the planning stage at this time.
Input from users of other sizes is actively solicited…your input is
what inspires the design of successful products.

Our website
will be updated to include Moleskine related info as soon as possible.
Please check there for the latest news on this and our other fine
leather products. We specialize in short run (25-500 units typically)
production of high quality leather goods. If you or anyone you know has
needs at this level, kindly forward our name to them. We appreciate all
the help we can get.

    Sorry but I just dont get this fascination with covering a moleskine, surely part of the delight is the “little black book” recognised by users the world over. Dont hide it flaunt it !!

    Y’know, this isn’t the only cover every made for a Moleskine. There were some out of Japan a couple years ago, and there are the renaissance covers that can be found with a simple Google search of ‘moleskine leather cover’ http://www.renaissance-art.com/catg109/category.aspx

    Why do these Saffo and Derricott guys think they’ve just done the Moleskine version of inventing the wheel?

    Wonderful to see interesting, crafts-person-like approaches to providing a nice accessory for these essential writing tools.

    Also worth checking out: http://www.handmaidbooks.com for other hand-made moleskine journal covers. Highly recommended!
