While both products I ordered are supposed to be orchid, I’m disappointed in the color and patterns. I find these description photos are very old. The pattern around paisleys actually has alot of flat blank space where there it should be detailed pattern. Same with the Hummingbird pattern. While I understand that shades of dye varies however I expected a more purple hue, not the wine/Bordeaux shade I received. Especially since I ordered two different items and both are exactly the same shade, so much for various shades. They’re cute just not as detailed as shown, I’ve ordered other patterns that were exactly as accurate as the photos just not these.
Thank you for your review. We appreciate the comments. I just want to let you know that the variation in color tone happens over the course of time as we receive different dye lots from the tannery every 3-6 months or so. An order with two items of the same color would be from the same working load of hides and so would be the same color.

I got one of these notebooks as a graduation gift in 1994. It had roses on the cover. It looks good as new, but has gotten more beautiful with age. I ordered this one with no button. I love it. I take it everywhere. I use the Leuchtturm notebooks, which fit perfectly in the covers, because I need lines. The color is just perfect, the construction is sturdy, and I always carry it in a bag. Without the button, it lays flat when I open it, so it is easier to write in, and I don't have to worry about the button scratching my antique desk. As an added bonus, they sent me a matching charm with my order. That was a nice touch. I still use the other cover also. I like that I can change them if I want to. This is much better than spending this much money on a beautiful journal (which I have done many, many times) that gets filled and then stays on a shelf forever. I don't think I will need another journal for a long time now, but I am eyeing some of their other leather products.
Have been collecting Oberon products for years....Love the paisley in the purple....leather lasts for years everything made so well...Quality!
I love this purple notebook cover! The notebook is perfect for my note keeping and I enjoy using it so much more with this cover. Every piece I’ve purchased from Oberon has quality leather, gorgeous colors, and excellent workmanship and the first pieces I purchased nearly 20 years ago still do.
