This cover will protect your 5.5″ x 3.5″ sized (Field Notes/WORD/etc) notebooks with a fierceness seldom seen from any part of the cotton plant. That’s because the cotton plant has teamed up with bees, or more specifically, the bees’ wax. This combination creates a naturally rugged, water resistant, and sturdy fabric that ages with a similar look to leather. These covers are capable of caring for two notebooks at a time.
These are made from 10oz. or 12oz. army duck canvas, hand-waxed in Texas, using beeswax sourced from local bees, then sun-baked to allow the wax to absorb in to the fabric. This process will give your notebook cover an amazing and subtle honey scent.

These notebook covers will show scratches and become distressed, but it will only get better looking over time, and the pattern that emerges will be unique to your cover. If you want a more “used” or “lived-in” look for your cover, you can speed the process by scrunching or squeezing it, then flattening it back out. If you want a less “used” or “lived-in” look for your cover, you can use heat to “reset” the pattern back to original. Use a hair dryer to heat the fabric until the color looks even again. A heat gun works faster, and open flame works too but isn’t recommended. If you use a clothes iron to flatten and reset, place some paper between the canvas and iron.
Caring for your notebook cover:
- Clean with a damp cloth
- Do not use soap
- Do not machine wash
- Do not dry clean
- Cuddling with it at night is okay
