Well, here it is, after being used every single day for a whole year. It has never been babied, in a pouch, treated with anything, cleaned or conditioned. I swiped it with a baby wipe twice over the year and that is it. It has been taken out of my bag at least twenty times a day for work and also because I use it as a wallet.
The patina is divine, the stitching has held up and the colour is glorious. Of all my binders, this one has garnered by far the most compliments. And what’s more, I have been unable to move out of it, despite the fact that I normally switch binders every two weeks.
