About Something For Keeps

Something For Keeps started as a meeting of the arts, bound in the pages of book restoration.

Paula, a bookbinder and Marcus, an art teacher, decided to exchange lessons in their respective crafts.

Within a short time, the two ventured into a bookbinding and book restoration business.

Drawing on their success, it wasn’t long before Marcus and Paula recognised a niche for creating beautifully crafted handmade leather journals originating from the world-renowned Margaret River region.

And the rest, as they say, is history. Something For Keeps was born.

Today, you’ll find Marcus and Paula inside their Margaret River bindery studio, crafting each journal from scratch. 

“We want our journal gifts to have meaning, create sentimental value and bring happiness into our customers’ lives,” says Paula.

Marcus and Paula design and create for customers worldwide, offering a range of personalisation options.

But what all love most about their handmade leather journals is the perfect balance between practical and beautiful.
