I am so totally in love with my Akiko binder – it is so beautiful. Honestly the most beautiful one I own. If I still had my Aqua Skorpion this would probably have knocked spots off it.
Anyway, I contacted Akiko about making me a binder from the metallic green leather of the little purse (seen above). It will look something like this – in the same leather and with the same violet inside lining but in the same style as the one I already have as I prefer that clasp. I think the two will look so nice together. One iridescent violet with green lining and one iridescent green with violet lining.
Akiko has said that she has some more of the green leather and will put it aside for me.
I also asked her about the indigo blue one with the flowers on it (below). She says that this is a rare leather but that she does have some more of it. She also has lots of lovely leather waiting to be used (oh I wish she hadn’t told me that). So if you would really like the blue one below it may be worth it to write and ask her if she can make you one when she has a chance.
