About the workshop


Creating a unique book requires dozens of hours of dedicated work and involves a combination of many processes, such as pressing the leather, painting the bookblock, dyeing the leather, and the assembly of metal or wooden accessories.


The leather used for binding is vegetable-tanned leather, which is considered the noblest type of leather due to its exceptional aesthetic values ​​and durability.


Each leather product is unique, as leather, being an animal-based material, is not uniform. All traces of scratches, scars, and fading prove its authenticity. Therefore, they are not a material defect, but rather confirmation of its natural origin.


Vegetable-tanned leather is one of the most expensive and noble leathers, and in its natural, unpainted state, has a sand color. It is compared to raw wood - it acquires a slightly warmer color over time, then becomes honey-colored, and finally turns into a caramel color. It ages slowly and often serves several generations because of its high durability


The Terra Handmade bindery specializes in individual and exclusive bindings made by hand. We do not use, as in the case of conventional bookbinding bindings, ready-made dies, stamps, rolls or punches that would facilitate and reduce the time spent working on the book. Each single line and pattern on the leather was carved by hand with simple, precise chisels, which additionally proves a lot of work put by the artist in making the binding. This gives the effect of uniqueness and guarantees that the totality is pure handicraft. It is impossible to make two identical bindings.


Each book we bind becomes a unique work of art that will be appreciated by anyone who values the beauty and value of craftsmanship. Contact us to create a custom binding for your book or to find a gift that will be remembered for years to come.


An artistically bound book will be a great idea for a gift for all occasions:


  • wedding

  • birthday

  • anniversary

  • First Communion

  • Christmas

  • retirement

  • promotion

  • thanks for cooperation etc.
