Readers Favourite Organiser - Cyn

Thank you to Cyn for sharing with us her favourite organiser. 

1. What is your favourite organiser (Make/model/size)?

At the moment A6 Gillio Compagna

2. How long have you owned it?

Owned for a month and just started using it on 11/27 (red) and used rust from 10/8 to 11/27

3. What is it that you like about it so much?

The size is perfect for everyday use. The leather is very lush.

4. Do you use it all the time?

I use it as an everyday carry and it's my wallet and planner all in one. Goes with me everywhere and in my purse.

5. Do you think the design could be improved in any way? How?

I would like a secretarial flap in the back but otherwise it's perfect.

And here are some photographs of my favourite organiser.

Thank you Cyn.

  1. Very handsome looking binder, Cyn....

    Thanks for sharing it....

    Never had a Gillio nor seen one in person...just in pics online....

    Leather is very lush you say....do you mean soft and pliable or ?

    Do the covers have any stiffeners in them or are they quite bendable?



    1. Hi Mark,
      Very soft and pliable and floppy, especially the compagna. No stiffeners at all. The leather is luxe and I have not had any binder with a better quality leather, even the highest designer brands.

      You must get one. They are pricey but worth every penny. They get better with age as well.
