Evening Shade Perfect Pocket Folio
Evening Shade is an incredibly high quality Italian leather. It has medium firm feel with a smooth topside. It's a waxed leather so the finish has a light sheen. The leather is vegetable tanned, which adds to it's amazing smell. It ages quite well. This leather will take a scratch, so I wouldn't carry it with my keys, unless you like that look. The leather has a great pullup, meaning if you bend or pull up on the leather the waxes and oils redistribute and create a lighter grey color. (If you like this look - roll your cover when you get it to bring out the wrinkles and brown tones.)
Pockets: These folios come with some very functional pocket configurations. On the inside front pocket on the folio has a slip pocket for the front of your notebook. On top of that are two V pockets. The top pocket is great for credit cards or washi cards, and the bottom pocket is great for sticker sheets (or even another card placed vertically.) The pocket leather is nice and thin, which allows for maximum function without making the notebook thick. The inside back pocket is a slip pocket to slide the back cover of your notebook in.
Elastics: You can add an optional belly band if you choose. If you don't want a belly band, just type NONE in the box. (I personally don't use them as they don't need one for the folio to stay closed.)
Thread: There are several thread options to choose from. White and Oatmeal both look great. (Photos are with White Stitching.) Taupe is another great choice for this leather as the taupe brings out the brown tones from the leather.
