Personalised Kangaroo Leather Bookmark
After using everything from a leaf to a scrap of paper as a bookmark I decided it was time to make something that not only looked good but would be something I would keep using and not lose.
From this, the kangaroo leather bookmark was born.
Kangaroo is one of the naturally thinnest but strongest leathers available. It also looks beautiful.
The bookmark is 3.5cm by 13.5 high with a 5cm high tassel.
As kangaroos are wild they do get some scarring on the hide as shown on the nude coloured one. This is completely natural but should you wish to avoid any scars please let me know and I will do my best.
includes up to 5 large ornate stamps. Only letters are available not numbers.
As the bookmark can only fit 5 letters should you wish more please choose the ‘Extra Letters’ option. This option includes up to 10 words (letters, numbers and heart stamps are available). Please send me a message to discuss before purchasing.
If you want a quote, a different size or shapes book mark or anything else please message me to discuss before purchasing.
Please note that I do each letter by hand and can not guarantee that it will be perfectly straight.
Leather is a natural product and unlike a lot of other leather manufacturers who throw away any piece of leather that isn't 'perfect,' we believe in using every piece of leather to try and throw out as little as possible. In fact, we think that one of the best things about leather is that it isn't perfect and that it has scars, tanning and dye marks which makes every piece we make truly unique and one of a kind. If you would prefer that your order doesn't have any makes please let us know and we will send you a photo of your order before we post it to make sure you are happy with it.
