Holborn Zip personal size Filofax in Wine
The Holborn binders and folders are made from buttery-soft buffalo leather. Many of you have, or have heard of the Malden and know it's extremely popular because if its super-soft buffalo leather. The Holborn is like a more dressed-up version of the Malden.
First of all, many thanks to Filofax for sending me this beautiful binder as a sample to review! This Filofax is the Holborn Zip, Personal size, Wine color.
The styling of the Holborn is classic, and would be excellent for business or personal use (or a combination of both). The contrast stitching looks great:
The zip-around security means no worries about papers and loose ends falling out:
The inside of the Holborn has lots of pockets and fun hidey-places! At first glance it looks ordinary enough, with loads of slots to hold cards:
Just to the left of the cards is a full-length, open pocket:
Here is the inside of the back cover:
In the back cover there is another full-length open pocket that could hold bills, and in there is a full length zip pocket for coins or other items you don't want escaping:
Here is the Holborn Zip in action and fully loaded!
I haven't used a zipped binder since my very first Filofax-like binder, so it feels good to go back to my roots! And the leather on the Holborn is so smooth and soft, I want to pet and handle it all the time!
Based on information I've seen about the Filofax lineup this year, I have good news and bad news:
The good news is, the Wine color Holborn products will be more widely available starting next month.
The bad news is, the Zipped Holborns are being discontinued!
You can still get zipped Holborns in personal and A5 size at www.PensAndLeather.com, click here to see their Holborn range. (I am not affiliated with PAN but I have ordered from them before and was very pleased.)
Many thanks again to Filofax!
