Undercover UK 2013 recycled leather daily diary

I liked my 2012 diary from Undercover UK so much (see my review here) that I ordered one up for 2013 too. This is their Recycled Leather Diary, day to view.

This time I ordered early so I could choose exactly which color I wanted from the multitude they have available, before they sold out. I went with Aubergine, and it is gorgeous!

There are so many features I love in this diary. Annual overview pages:
 Monthly calendars:
 An open format on the day pages with holidays printed:
 Notes pages:
 Address pages:
 And an attached elastic closure strap. "Handmade in England, Recycled Leather" is printed on the back.

I expect this will be the daily diary I use for 2013. It's the perfect size, in my opinion: 12 by 17 cm which is smaller than A5 but larger than A6/ pocket. This year I've been struggling with the small size of the daily pages in my pocket Moleskine daily diary, so I think I will appreciate the larger pages for next year.


  1. I like the idea of recycled leather very much (My X17 cover is from reconstituted leather). Is this notebook made from reused leather or from bonded/reconstituted leather?

    1. It says it is made from "leather offcuts from the Italian shoe industry." It looks like tiny bits of leather have been put together into a slurry, spread onto some kind of a screen, dried into a single sheet then colored. That's just what it looks like to me though, I don't know what the actual process is. The result is nice though.
