Shop Updates

Shop Update!

Opps… did I say this would be on a Monday?? ¬†Well the fact that I am so poorly with man flu made yesterday such an unproductive day, for me! Trevor was hard at work on all your lovely creations!

If you are not a member of our Facebook group then you may be wondering why the ETSY shop isn’t open yet.. we have decided that as of immediately we will only be opening the Etsy store on weekends! Every week the shop will open at 6pm on Friday and shut at 6pm on Sunday or once we have received our maximum weekly orders.. whichever is soonest! You are still able to complete the webform or email us for a custom request.

Our aim with this new schedule is to reduce waiting times and we will be trialling it for the next 6 weeks to see how it works of us and for you.. our long term aim is to have a functioning website that you can purchase from which will simplify the process.

This Thursday our blog post is going to show you sneak peaks of the process that goes into making each and every leather product.. I know that there are now many makers out there and really wanted to highlight to you guys the hard work that goes into each and every one of our planners.. that will be live at 10 am so check back then.


How to order

Todays blog is a bit self indulgent really, we have had so many questions asking about our custom orders and how you go about requesting one. Until now we have been asking people to email us but as of right now you can fill in the order form HERE and we will invoice you within 48 hours (mon-fri) the invoices come via PayPal so your purchase is protected and you don’t need a PayPal account to pay it, we also allow you to pay in instalments too!

Below are the product specifications for the UglyDori, before you click the link above to order you will need to chose: planner colour, thread/stitch colour, elastic colour, size, name on name band and if you require a pen loop or not.

Colour Chart

All of our Travellers Notebooks are made from 2mm – 2.8mm, Full Grain Leather, everything is done in house and by hand, including: cutting, dying, tooling, stitching, finishing and packing. We use absolutely no machines which means that our stitching is stronger and will last the test of time.

We have so much respect for the lives of the cow which provided the leather for each notebook and we love all of the battle scars that they may have had, we feel this adds charm to the overall effect, when buying an UglyDori you are buying a TN which is unique and has character.

Planner Colour:

We have tried to capture the colours in their truest form but obviously monitor settings etc can effect the way they look in real life and each piece of leather accepts the dye differently.
