Value Your Thoughts

For us, an idea is a very powerful thing and a place to collect those great ideas is essential. The Last Notebook, from our friends at Paper Collective and Sorensen Leather, is hands down one of the highest quality notebooks we have ever come across.

Quality, Never Quantity

Sørensen Leather is responsible for upholstering of some of the world’s finest furniture and our notebook covers. Through our partnership with Paper Collective, Denmark, we have sourced a sketchbook worthy of being called Well Made.

The Details

Each 17.5 x 22cm (6.875” x 8.625”) notebook contains 160 pages of FSC certified Munken Pure Paper, bound to a Sørensen aniline leather cover. Every front page is hand labeled and comes with an elastic place-marker band.


Frequently Asked Questions

+ How accurate are the color swatches?

We inspect our products closely to ensure you get the quality we promised you. That being said, we use and source natural materials so variation in grain, color and texture may occur.

+ What is aniline leather?

Aniline leather is dyed with soluable dyes that show the original hide's grain and texture. Because the process can expose scratches and scrapes, only the highest qaulity leather can be chosen.

+ Ok, but what is FSC certified Munken Pure paper?

Munken is a thick, high quality paper that is smooth, uncoated and a subtle cream color. FSC certified paper has been responsibly sourced with a transparent origin.

+ Do you offer wholesale prices on this item?

Unfortunately not. In order to bring an item of this quality to our customers, we are working directly with the manufacturer. If you'd like Well Made to assist in sourcing a similar quality item, please visit our Contact page and let us know.
