I have always loved Il Bisonte organizers. They are made of gorgeous leather, as are their bags. Not cheap but these are real investment purchases which can be handed down to your children and grandchildren.

The photo at the top of this post, and the ones just below this paragraph are by Michelle who had this gorgeous natural leather one and has allowed me to use her photographs. Is it not gorgeous! As far as I know they do not make this undyed natural colour anymore which is why I am kicking myself for not getting it when she was selling it 🙁   …… more pics follow below. Both Michelle and I are great fans of vachetta leather! (Wikipedia says: Vachetta leather is used in the trimmings of luggage and handbags. The leather is left untreated and is therefore susceptible to water and stains. Sunlight will cause the natural leather to darken in shade, called a patina).




Vintage leather – look how well it ages!


And here are some bags…

      1. Hello, I am really interest in getting one. I have been looking for the old il bisonte planner for a while. Can I ask for more detail?

      2. Hello there – I have just sold my second and last one, sadly. The buyer has not received my second one yet. If they do get it and don’t like it, you can have first dibs on it. I will keep you posted. These binders do pop up on eBay now and then so keep your eyes out.

  1. Ever since you posted this, I’ve been on the hunt for one of these in the tan leather and today I finally received one! It really is all you said it would be and more, I love it to bits. Thanks for introducing me to them!

  2. Oh no, now I really want an Il Bisonte Insider… Can someone please talk me down from the ledge? I mean, they are totally impractical, with too narrow a pen pouch and too few pockets, right?

    1. So, I just ordered myself an Insider in cognac. My kids might have to survive on knäckebröd for the rest of the summer, but I’m sure they will feel it’s worth it. Eventually.

  3. I have owned a couple of Il Bisonte organizers but I always got the zip-around. They are beautiful and the leather is exquisite BUT – the rings are on the small side, they don’t lay flat and there is no pen holder in the zip-around. Oh but they feel wonderful in your hands! Janet I am happy to go to the Il Bisonte store in Beverly Hills to see what they have available for you. Last time I was there they had a gorgeous zip-around in a Cognac color and it took all I had to not buy it. I had to remember the things I did not care for about it!

  4. diameter is 2,6 price is unfortunately 227 euro and nothing in rome and only 2 pcs left in Florence, I would go by taxy and send them to you. they do not send them since they are already in a shop not in the company. even the shop in rome does not have this colour anymore. . unfortunately no discount . this is all i can do for you. I am lucky you are not interested in Chianti Classico wine bottles

  5. I own the wallet that they make called Celebrity and I absolutely love it!! I want one of their bags soooo bag but, sadly just not in the budget at this point in time. I didn’t pay attention to the fact that they make planners as well drool!!!!!

  6. Any idea what the ring size is on these organisers Janet? No mention on their website. Quite a reasonable price for the quality of them and the lovely design I think.

    1. They are gorgeous, aren’t they? I have felt a black one and it is To.Die.For. Cannot remember but for some reason I think about 25/26mm. Danny N Michelle would know as she is the owner of the undyed one I featured here.
