A Toast to our Authors: Vintage leather journals and the love of writing
“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
And how true it was meant to be…
This quote from the great Brazilian author (and one of my favorites) single-handedly inspired me to make my dream of creating Soulful Collection a reality. From moments of panic and desperation to utter chaos, the one thing that kept me going while I was creating this venture was many quotes of his.
And that’s the power of words that authors create in shaping our lives!
The other day I read somewhere that November 1 is National Authors’ Day - an event celebrated to show appreciation for the extraordinary hard work put in by the American authors behind your favorite writings.
While Coelho was not American, I believe we should commemorate Authors’ day for all the great writers worldwide who have influenced millions of us through their words and memorable quotes.
I am a bookworm, who loves to delve into the amazing world of literature. From the old literary classics like The Fountainhead to even the recent teenybopper stuff like The Maze Runner, I’ve been there, read that!
That’s why I believe in the magic of words and interplay of characters that charges you up – it feels so inspiring after reading a really good book.
In fact, a big part of that mad, mad world of reading and writing has helped me come up with the idea of selling Leather Journals on Soulful Collection.
When our team was mulling about the kind of leather products that we should come up for retailing, I insisted that Journals and Notebooks should definitely be a part of it. In retrospect, I guess it was my way of showing love to all the writers in the world whose passion brought change in the world.
In the age of laptops, tablets and computers, using a Vintage Leather Journal is one way you can go back in time and feel what great writers like Mark Twain and Jane Austen must be thinking – it’s therapeutic and nostalgic.
These journals, diaries and scrap books are great items to record all of your thoughts, ideas, sketches and travelogues.
These books have decorative hard leather covers – they have been designed with classic engravings, fabric cloths, fur leather etc. to give a distinct look. You can also keep these journals safe from prying eyes by locking them with buckles or key-based locks.
As a matter of fact, on the occasion of Authors’ Day, I plan to gift my husband a Handmade Leather Journal. I hope he use it to pen his creative ideas while he’s on the move!
Still need reasons for using these writing journals? Here are 3 of them:
These antique leather journals are as vintage as you can get - truly a luxury diary of the golden age. The best part about it is the handmade paper – it’s torn and rejoined again to give that rustic look. Ideal for people who love writing.
This travel journal is exotic and how! The journal is an ideal gift to someone who loves to write travelogues wherever they go.
The travel diary comes with a nice tree of life design on the cover, which represents interconnection of all life. The theme signifies that wherever you travel, you remain connected to the nature and her people as we all are one and equal. Quite thoughtful, isn’t it!
The best thing I love about these handmade leather journals is the use of fur leather cover. The soft touch really adds to the senses and makes it pleasing.
The beloved Toni Morrison once said, “If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.”
So start writing that book of your life. Express yourself. Be the joy that you want to see in the world.
If you have the passion, we have the product.

Cracking a job interview is always tough. It is one of the most challenging ways to make a good first impression. You don’t know how things will turn out. One small mistake can cost you that opening. However, it’s also your opportunity to understand your employer and turn the tables by getting on their good side. So even if your credentials aren’t better, you still have an edge over the other applicants.
