Well, it was a wrench moving out of the Buttercup Ostrich. I love that binder and it is so perfectly designed. But this one was calling….
This binder is not as brilliantly laid out as the Ostriches but in lieu of the end pockets on the Ostrich, this one has the full-length back pocket. And everything else fits in perfectly. I used it today and there was no fumbling around while I found things in this new layout so it is very intuitively designed.
The feel of it is fascinating. It is soft and feels semi-rubbery, semi-plasticky but in a leathery way. There is no doubt that this is leather but the detailing must have involved a lot of work for the artisans as it is very painstakingly done.
This binder in this colour was one of only four made.
