Blue A5 Cordwain Higgler Moongazing Hare


Well, lightning fast service doesn’t even begin to cover it! I ordered this late on Friday and it was in Stockholm by 9am this morning, Monday. What was even nicer is that Pat from Cordwain Higgler took the time out of her busy day to contact me and let me know it had arrived in Sweden. And how beautiful it is! Apart from one small mark on the leather which caused it to be in the clearance section, it is absolutely perfect. When open the whole back cover forms a beautiful picture. And I think I read somewhere you can have the regular ones custom made to show the constellation of your star sign.

The inside of the binder is also blue and there is a wonderful bunny keyring included as well as the lovely little leather Cordwain Higgler tag. You also always get a generous pack of inserts with the binder. Refills of these can be ordered from Cordwain Higgler but all their binders are Filofax compatible as well.

The pen loop is ingenious as it loops around on itself to hold pens of any thickness. You can choose three different types of closure – loop, press stud and Sam Browne, which is this one.

The colour is a beautiful vibrant blue in the royal cobalt shades. I had to take photos by the light of my desk lamp as it is so dark at the moment, so the photos are a bit washed out and the natural striations in the leather show more than they do in daylight.  When I get a chance later this month, I will take photographs in natural light when I find some!

I love love love this!

  1. Oh, this is amazing! I definitely want one in the new year in this colour. And choosing a constellation would be fab. What’s the Sam Browne closure like?

  2. I am having one made with my favorite constellation, Orion, embossed on the cover. So excited to receive it!

      1. The buckskin yellow. I have no yellow planners! I’m also having the Sam Browne closure because it’s different.
