A little bit about us 


Rustico began 16 years ago when founder, Isaac Childs, and a few friends picked a journey to live authentic by designing true-to-yourself leather accessories through American artisanship. And we're still trekkin' it, encouraging every individual to step outside and reach within, to explore and to create and leave your mark in this world. 

We continue to handcraft original and high-quality leather journals and more that have become part of our fans everyday lives. Through American craftsmanship and driven by purpose, we challenge ourselves everyday to craft timeless leather products 

Take a look behind the scenes making of a Rustico item.




Why Natural Top-Grain leather 

One of the best characteristics of working with natural leather is that it only gets more attractive with time and use. Whereas some materials permanently stain or varnish in some form, leather takes on marks beautifully. We embrace these dings and dents as they add character to your piece and it develops its own unique patina over time. 
Something truly individual and expressive happens when we craft art that's useful and beautiful. We also think art should be a shared experience, so in every Rustico piece, we've left room for your creativity.
The Rustico mantra explained
When we say, "Leave Your Mark", we are meaning two things:
  1. We are inviting you to use your Rustico leather products and notice the beautiful marks they receive over time. We want your adventures to show on the leather we use as well as the pages in our journals. We invite you to make our products your own.
  2. We are inviting you to leave a positive mark on the world and people around you. At Rustico we are passionate about the fact that a single person can make a large positive impact on the world and we are passionate about making that a primary focus in our lives. We invite you to look outside yourself and make a difference.


Only the Finest Materials 

We’re creators. Craftsmen. Artisans. And we love using awesome leather for the pieces we craft. We care about the materials in our creative arsenal, which is why we only pick high-quality top-grain leather from American cowhides.

When you get your first Rustico piece, take care to notice the stiff leather. We’ve left things just raw enough so it will take on the characteristics of your journey. Take it with you wherever you go and let it collect your adventures and your impressions.

American craftsmanship lives here


Made Not Produced

When you click submit on your order, our team gets to work. A lot of folks don't know this but we're made to order. Pull, cut, sew, ship. That's the name of the game. By keeping our workshop local and skilled talents right here at home, it helps ensure our products utmost durability and fortitude to come out right so one day it can become a family heirloom. Our craftsmanship is a treasured cornerstone value here and one which we take great pride in.  

This is where the artisan touch matters most. Our artisans take their time carefully piecing together your new Rustico item. A process that can't be rushed, we don't cut any corners when it comes crafting quality. When you buy a Rustico product, you are buying the toughest materials out there. Look for our custom, branded Rustico rivet in each piece which ensures we stand behind our brand.
