It’s back to basics with the Jacinto & Lirio Persevere Vegan Leather Journal. A classic journal with a twist of nature and local craftsmanship, the Persevere Journal is a testament to the innovative skills and simple nature of the Filipino. Handmade from water hyacinth leather, this vegan leather journal is a refillable journal with side pockets. The blank white paper allows its user to make what he wants out of it, whether a list of reminders, a diary, or a sketchpad. Persevere allows its users to express themselves through their work or play, or even both.
