I admit at first that I was a little disappointed with the colour, but I needed to adjust the saturation in my pictures as it does tend to photograph more red than in real life. I think the best way to explain it would be if you took brown and then added just a little red to lift the colour slightly. It’s a really nice shade and makes me think of autumn leaves and mulled wine.
So many pockets! I normally use a pencil case in my other binders, but definitely won’t need one in the Holborn.
They layout lends itself well to being used as a wallet, but I think that I’d need to remove the pen when out and about, as it does get in the way of access to the hidden zipped pocket.
Well, I’ve been using the Holborn as my main planner since the beginning of November and I absolutely love it. Soft leather, contrast stitching, all those pockets, great colour and I also feel comfortable with just chucking it in my bag. I’ve also realised to my surprise that I prefer it to the crimson Malden which is quite a surprise to me. However, the softer leather and pocket layout have won me over completely.
