Now you can make your very own journal, guest book or photo album with this beautiful The Siam Bindery Long Stitch Binding toolkit. The binding method is based on the traditional Long Stitch Binding method dating back as far as the 13th century BC. With this method, 15 signatures get stitched to the leather creating a very striking book spine. The spine measures 4.5cm / 1.78″ in width, and the book has 300 pages front-back/ 150 pages single-sided.
This toolkit has been created based on one of our most popular bookbinding programs and includes all the necessary tools and materials to get you started on your bookbinding journey.

Upgrade to authentic leather
When upgrading to authentic dark brown leather, you will receive a matching authentic leather strap.
The leather is hand-cut from a full hide – we do not use leather off-cuts. Do note that, because leather is a natural product, there might be some lines or marks on the leather. This adds to the charm of the leather.
The leather is approximately 1.8mm / 0.07″ thick.
At the moment we only offer leather in a dark brown tone. Should this particular tone become unavailable, we will include a piece of leather very close to the tone shown in the photos.
