Frequently Asked Questions


When will my order ship?

Depending on the order you placed, there will be different shipping times.

  • Ready to ship items will ship the next business day.
  • Inserts take 3-5 workdays before shipping.
  • Wallets and pencil cases take 1-2 weeks before shipping
  • Made to order Falcon Travelers without pockets (basic), or extra's, take 1-2 weeks before shipping.
  • Made to order Falcon Travelers with pockets or stitching take 2-3 weeks before shipping.
  • Made to order Falcon Travelers with extra add-on's, except the pen-loops or the XL option, take 3-4 weeks before shipping.
  • Made to order Hand-dyed Falcon Travelers with custom Artwork will go on a wait list and will be handled in order of position on the list.
The item with the longest shipping time will determine when your order will be shipped.

Please keep in mind that these are estimated times based on normal production volumes. We are a small shop, with all handmade products, mostly made to order leather notebooks. When the order amount is more than we can handle in a regular fashion, the time to make the items (before shipping) will increase.

Days are based on workdays and exclude weekends or Dutch National Holidays.

To avoid longer waiting times we will take a limited amount of orders for  Falcon Travelers and Falcon Hobo's each week.

When the made to order notebooks are marked "SOLD OUT" the price may not be visible. This is an overview of all current sizes and configurations, as of January 2017.

**The price in the above table may vary from the listing price, in that case the listing price is leading!**

Since this MOO is new to us (August 2016) and we are looking for the right way to do this, there may be some tweaking involved.  Please bear with us while we work out the best way to get your Traveler to you in time. Thank you for understanding.

What does it take to make a made to order Falcon Traveler?

It takes on average 5 hours to make a Falcon Traveler from start to shipping. Depending on size and add-on's requested.

All our Falcon Traveler's and Hobo's are handmade from scratch. The leather reaches us as large sheets of un-dyed vegetable tanned leather and is cut, by hand, to the correct size. 

We have too many different styles, sizes and colors to keep a stock of pre-cut and pre-dyed covers and pockets. Therefore each order is cut and processed when it is placed.

The cut pieces of leather need some extra steps to become a leather cover. Like rounding the corners, adding the logo, adding a stitching seam and punching the holes for stitching. After this they will get dyed by hand into the requested color.

The next step will depend on the requested order, weather there need to follow additional treatments for the notebook. Some have paintings, some have "galaxy's" or other extra painting steps. Some have a stamping add on etc.

After this we condition the leather. We brush the rough side to a suede and spray it with a suede conditioner. The outside of the cover is either treated with leather oil (either mink oil or neatsfoot oil, or Carnauba creme. Which one we use depends on the color of the cover and on which treatment it had before conditioning. Turquoise, Rose and painted covers, will get a Carnauba treatment, Coffe Latte has a Wax conditioning (part of the dyeing process for this colorway) and all other covers get an oil conditioning.

So now we have loose pieces of leather and those need to be sewn together. First we glue them together, since you cannot pin leather pieces together. After this the holes have to get punched through the cover pockets and then we can start sewing the covers. This is done by hand on a stitching pony in the traditional leather sewing way. With one (very) long thread and 2 needles.

Once the covers are sewn, the edges need to get finished, sanded and buffed. Which brings the notebook to a nearly finished state. We now just need to add the holes for elastics, add the elastics, make the insert after which the Falcon traveler is ready to get packed up and start its travels around the world.

How long does it take after shipping to get to me? 

Depending on where in the world the parcel has to go to it can take a while to get there. Wind and weather permitting it will get there in the below estimated times:

  • For the Netherlands this usually 1-2 workdays with regular mail.
  • For European countries this is usually from 1-2 weeks with regular mail.
  • For the USA and the rest of the world this is usually from 2-3 weeks with regular mail.

Depending on mail and customs in your country it can take longer to get there. There is no guarantee your parcel will get there in the estimated times listed above.
