First of all, I'm tired...
Verified Purchase
First of all, I'm tired of reading unhelpful reviews about how Pelle is a imitation and blah blah... I own the large Midori notebook, but I wanted a smaller version for EDC since I dont lug around a big bag with me anymore. I decided to go for the small pelle journal because of its price and similarities.

The leather:
I was torn between the brown and this rustic color. I like vintage and the Rustic Saddle color appealed to me more. What I didn't realize was that when I recieved my item, I discovered that the leather cover was actually a SUEDE type of leather. No biggie, I grew to like it the more and more I petted it. :) The leather feels very...buttery..and smooth. Its actually quite nice. Even though the cover seems to easily get marked up with my finger nails and such, it seems to be a bit more scratch resistant then my midori because it is suede. Pet it and the marks fade some. The insert in my notebook arrived upside down and upon correcting this I became VERY annoyed by how messy and tight the strings were in the middle. The leather kept on curling on me and that made me upset for a while. After I got 3 inserts fitted, things seemed to work out better.

The notebook insert:
Comes with a plain blank insert. The paper accepts my EF and F fountain pen nibs fine. When I tried my medium nib it feathered. The paper is a bit thicker than the midori inserts in the same size. What I don't like is that it won't lie flat when closed.

I fitted my pelle small journal with 2 more inserts (midori) and a zippered pocket. So far I really like it. I gave it 4 stars because of the trouble I had with the strings/bands in the middle. Other than that its awesome. My Pelle Journal ===>
