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 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 recommendations for starting out...

  • Expedition Leather Notebook

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

          1. Saddle
          2. Dark Brown
          3. Charcoal

          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.

          The characteristics of Rustico's top grain leather

          The characteristics of Rustico's top grain leather Sixteen years ago, as we were vetting through different hides to use for our line, we came across a rugged look that was filled with character and immediately became drawn to it. To this day, while we have refined our leather to become more consistent and rugged, we continue to use this grade and we stand behind our decision as to why we fell in love with it.
