Sharon Highway Mallory Journals #Cafdgg November 2020



I make hand bound journals from beautiful Italian Leather lined with fabulous papers on many themes


I am Sharon of Mallory Journals and I make hand bound journals from beautiful Italian Leather and Portugese Cork Fabric.  Making Journals is therapy, I have been making them from leather for around 7 years.

I made one after needing a unique and useful gift for my husband.  I made a few extra which sold very well.  And since then I have developed my stule and added cork fabric to my repertoire quite recently.

Playing with leather, cork, beautiful hand made and screen printed papers, cords, ribbons and elastics is my idea of heaven.

I keep a range of Journals in stock, but a lot are one of a kind and I also take commissions.  Map Journals are hand bound to order, making them totally unique and personal.

I use vintage Atlas, OS Maps, Road maps etc.  They are perfect for Travel Journals, Wedding Gifts etc.  I also make sketchbooks, baby journals, dot grid and ruled Journals and many more.

I thoroughly enjoy what I do and get withdrawal symptoms if I don’t make a Journal for a few days. When I go away I can’t wait to get back into my workroom.  A HUGE part of my life.

You can meet Sharon over the next few months at Compton Verney Textile Fair, Etsy Made Local Leamington and Warwickshire Open Studios 2020.
