I ordered this from totandmom on Instagram. The seller, Grace, was very patient and friendly! 101% excellent customer service. :)
It came beautifully wrapped in bubble wrap and placed in a box. It's disappointing how Filofax stopped selling their planners with the black signature boxes for protection. Nonetheless, having the plastic is better than nothing!
It's definitely in the greener tone than in the aqua, sort of blue tone. I'd describe the color as teal!
The little details, the texture and the stitching is heavenly!
Maldens have super soft leather and long straps meaning, they can hold a lot more papers or inserts.
When you flip to the back, you will see one pen loop, another full-length pocket and a pocket for the notepad, mine did not come with a notepad, more empty pockets for me!
The pen loop is NOT elastic. I'm not exactly sure which pens could fit but my Muji pens could not, unless I force them too, which I wouldn't do. I'll probably hang it at the side or attach another pen loop somewhere. Not big of a problem to me since I carry a pen pouch together with my Filo case every time.
So, that's it for the short review! Hope you found it helpful, one way or another.
I'm thinking of doing a video about this, should I? Leave your thoughts below!
Til next time,
