Getting Started with Rustico

New to Rustico and don’t know where to start? That’s OK, we made it easy. Let us start out by saying – welcome! We’re a team of Artisans dedicated to handcrafting timeless leather products built to inspire you to step outside and leave your mark.  

Since the creation of our first journal in 1998, our collections have grown significantly beyond hand-sewn books and journals. We now craft various leather pieces ranging from accessories to travel to home and to the office.

Additionally, we do things a little differently here at Rustico. Rather than picking leathers that are perfectly polished and highly-treated, we use top-grain leather to give the products a timeless and distinguished look.

Here are 10 of our top recommendations for starting out:

    Leather refillable notebooko

      Leather cord organizer

        leather pouch dopp kitt

          leather wine logbook

          Curious which colors perform the best? We asked our top accounts and they all agreed on: 

          1. Saddle
          2. Dark Brown
          3. Buckskin

          We understand how important it is to carefully choose products that align directly with your brand and we are confident that we carry an item for everyone.

          The items above are a good starting point, but if you want to jump on a call with one of our Wholesale Brand Specialists, call 866-426-4957.

          Where do you have a place to open a new account? Not very user friendly.
