The Walnut Burr makes for a beautiful journal made from the same veneer as the dashboards in a Bentley. The burr of the tree comes from a growth normally found in the root system, offering wonderful wood grain patterns. Its veneer is only extracted once the tree has passed its peak nut harvesting. This wooden journal range was launched earlier this year, you can read more about it here.

Truly British Gentleman
The Brown Oak Burr wood can only be found around the M25 of England in the Home Counties. This wood is cut from logs that have been affected by an unusual bracket fungus commonly known as ‘beefsteak’ due to its livid, red colour. The infected wood develops brown rot, which darkens its tone, provided its harvested from the wild before the rot sets in fully, this timber is turned into highly sought-after veneer. These are popular due to its classic patterning combined with a salvage and naturally recycled appeal.
