Milanese brand Valextra is well-known for its top-quality leather luggage. Established in 1937 by Giovanni Fontana, the company’s fortunes were revived in 2000 when Carminati Molina bought the company. Now, exclusively for Monocle, Valextra’s craftsmen have created this soft leather notebook holder that comes with a fine-lined notebook. The design also doubles as a passport holder. The leather is mustard but the edges are inky green, as is the stitching. Each notebook is stamped in gold “Valextra for Monocle” and comes in a black presentation box.
