Da haben tatsächlich viele meiner Schätze reingepasst. Für den mittleren Teil habe ich länger nach einer Verwendung gesucht und mich für einen Mininotizbuch und paar Büroklammern entschieden . Ich bin happy damit.

Beautiful craftsmanship, needs wrist rest over zipper please!

I love this journal case. It's almost perfect. One downside is that the zipper teeth dig into my wrist when I write. I don't want to pull my journal out of the case to use it, and it's rather sharp. The other issue is you need to turn your fountain pens to the side in the loops, or upon closing the pen clip digs into the journal cover and marks it. Also that puts direct pressure on your pens, so just remember to turn them a quarter turn so the journal can lay flat against the loops when zipped closed. 4.5 stars

Everything I hoped for.

I was hesitant about ordering as the costs are more then most but I am so very glad I did. The quality is far better then any other folio I have ever seen. The leather is top notch and truly its a work of art. I journal daily and I truly can't wait to see how it ages. I will be ordering more of their products with out a doubt.

Beautiful Folio

I'm a big fan of this, so much so that I'm not eagerly awaiting the hard pen cases coming back in stock!

My only (slight) gripe is that the leather on the pen holder scuffs very easily. I had been keeping a Lamy Safari in the second slot, and after just a couple uses, I noted that it had scuffed up the leather in that area pretty bad. My advice would be to not store any pens with hard or sharp edges if you want to keep your folio scuff free.

Best purchase for new year

Got the notebook folio. This in the best purchase I have made in recent years!

Leather, style, size and everything is just as expected. Just keep in mind not to expect putting THICK notebook or notepad in it.

Also I appreciate the delicacy of you to share small extra gifts with me from Nazar to Turkish coffee!

110/100 recommend buying it. One of the most reasonable and best product to spend money on.

Wonderful item. Came in appropriate time for Christmas. Very happy with craftsmanship. Wife so happy she cried as was was looking for and at this item for some time. Just need to save up for a nice fountain pen for her journal.
Can't be anymore impressed. Embossed initials wonderful.

I love it

I got my Leather Notebook Zippered folio in Crazy Horse Forest green. Built quality is exceptional, leather is great and the pockets are well thought. Quality is very high as expected reading the other reviews. The zip is extremely strong, as the entire leather folio. My Rodhia notebook fits perfectly inside. This has become my companion. Only little comment: the color on the picture is slightly different from reality. On the web it looks with a bit more blue, when in reality is a forest green. It looks great, but when I opened it I thought I picked up the wrong color. I am super happy of the purchase and I will buy other products from them!

Cecilia (Hialeah, US)

What a fine piece of workmanship. Soft and smooth yet strong and durable. Pictured is a loaded B6 inside an A5 folio zip. This is my 5th item and I'll be back. Earl Grey tea is so good I went and bought a whole batch of the Turkish brand online.

Rysen Shirzadi (Anchorage, US)
Beautiful and rugged travel folio

This is a great journal folio for raveling or just going back and forth from work. I have used it every day, and it's nice not to bring my whole bag to things like conferences and other events. Crazyhorse brown is a great look for it.

Maggie M (Manchester, US)
You will not be disappointed!

The hardest part is picking out a color, but my choice, Crazy Horse Honey Ochre, is beautiful and I love it! The quality is outstanding! The little brown draw string bag with Earl Gray tea, and the Turkish coffee, to the “Evil Eye” charm, to the beautiful personalized postcard, and even the box it came in. So much thought has been put in the presentation of their product. I have been watching YouTube videos of people opening and reviewing their Galen Leather products and I finally picked out one for an early Christmas present to myself. I live in the US and received this beauty in 6 days! Thank you!
