Patina | Number 10 | Two-In-One Folio or Traveler's Notebook


Patina is smooth in the hand and is ready to be your faithful companion and age with you. This leather is untreated veg-tanned leather so you're truly starting with a blank slate. It'll darken to a beautiful chestnut brown the longer it's loved.

  • Full-grain, veg-tanned European Leather
  • Color changes with exposure to light and oils in your hands
  • Smooth texture
  • Will have scars, veining, and natural variation

Number 10 Design

The Number 10 design celebrates ten years of Chic Sparrow! This design features a two-in-one use, so it's the ONLY TN you'll ever need. You can use it as a folio and put a notebook into either of the pockets OR use it as a TN or a combination of both. Be it indecision or a love adaptability in a notebook cover this will be a winner for any of your needs!

Leather Care

This leather is considered untreated by industry standards, so care is straightforward. Use a soft cloth and our leather balm (we make in house) to keep it soft and use an undyed leather cleaner to keep it clean.

Clean/Condition Patina 2 times a year if you're in a dry arid climate and 1 time a year if you're in a humid climate.

Oh Patina!

Every bit as wonderful as expected from Chic Sparrow. The Sterling Ink N1 compact common planner was a bit difficult to work into the back folio pocket, but after trimming a tiny bit off the planner’s back cover it worked a charm. I was going to wait to use Patina for January 2025 but who was I kidding? I love it and am very glad I purchased.

Soft and lovely!

This notebook cover feels so good in the hands and I can't wait to watch it age and evolve over time. It's truly lovely.

I absolutely love the design, the leather, everything. The patina leather is quickly becoming my favorite.

Patina #10 - B6

Love the Patina leather and cannot wait for the patina to develop over time. Absolutely love the Chic Sparrow products and this style - No. 10 is the best so far. I have purchased TN’s from two other companies and they don’t come close to the quality and craftsmanship of CS. 💕

Amber Wood
Great quality and design

As always, Chic Sparrow has excellent quality/craftsmanship and design on this folio. I'm happy to have a snap closure in my CS arsenal :)
