  1. Gorgeous collection! The Gillio Aqua Scorpion is STUNNING!!! I’m new to the Gillio binders and have always wondered: is Gillio and Gigliodoro the same or two different companies? I see the binders stamped with one name or the other and both referred to as Gillio sometimes while other times not.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

  2. Thank you for sharing some of your collection with us! My collection hovers around the same number, but I tend to go for more of the low end priced unusual binders (easier to find on this side of the pond) and Franklin Coveys.

  3. Since buying a customized VDS binder from the Facebook page, I have been very tempted by the Touch Me. The leather seems so nice. I love soft and bendable binders, but not extremely floppy ones. Would you say the Touch Me is that kind of floppy? Perhaps compared to the Kensingtons or Maldens?

    1. It has no stiffener in it but because of the full length back pocket it has more sturdiness to the covers than the Malden or the Kensington, due to the double layer of leather.

  4. I love my Gillio Aqua Skorpion. I know I will never be able to use it properly as it will die, but I love it to much to send it back 🙂
