Beautiful craftsmanship + Functional Design

I absolutely love this zippered folio. I paired it with the Galen Cosmo notebook. As you can see, there is room for everything! Not pictured, are my ID and credit card. So I don’t even have to carry a wallet anymore! No more carrying around a separate wallet, journal, pen case, travel palette, paint brush case… it all fits into one! Zip it up and go!

Simply love it.

I was going conservative in a colour I already have Galen products in... that was my original plan. Navy blue to match my other navy blue Galen purchases .... but this lovely orchid purple shoews up on my browse through the day I was ordering it, snd the wild child that this very conservative lady only lets out on rare occasions knocked down her door and my finger pressed purple.
I worried for days about letting the normally contained part of me make that decision. But it arrive and the dominate conservative me, literally melted when I saw it in its box. So one score for my seldom seen ... often restrained wild side. I love it. I haven't transferred my cards etc into it yet. When I do it will get humps and bumps, for now it is too new and to enchanting to get stretched out of shape. That will happen soon enough. My use for it right now is not a daytime calendar, but a daily record of my thoughts, my meetings and my reminders of what life is requiring from me. It often gets daily wrap up on what is left of each day's page.
The quality never disappoints. It feels lovely in my hand... once cards are in it, it shall be probably the only thing I carry, similar to clutch purses.
Galen is always so easy to work with. Even helped me sort out a potential spam situation. So we'll done Galen and Thank you again for a timeless investment.

Functional&Don’t want to put it down

Love it’s feel, smell and now it’s aging. I’ve had mine since 12/21’ and in and out of use for weeks/months at a time. I did have an oops with my kids wipes where it sat on top of a clean wet wipe though it’s unscented there’s still little soap, it kind of warped the backing a bit but the leather is still great I’ve conditioned it since though only once total. This will be the folio to remind me of my journey as a mother lol. Just makes me want more to add to my leather obsession 🤍. Can’t wait for the b6 might need it in two colors 🤭

This is awesome!

This leather is very smooth and I like it! The evil eye is not in a good condition though..😕

Beautiful and almost perfectly functional

I’ve eyed this folio for a while and finally bought it last month. I couldnt decide on getting the Green or Undyed Leather - I’m so glad I went for undyed. It’s so beautiful and I’m loving the colour change. I say this folio is “almost” perfect because I can’t fit everything I wanted. I wanted to fit my kindle and more pens and my Hobonichi Cousin, but doing so would cause damage inside. Instead, I’ve filled the folio with a Midi-sized journal, stickers, scissors and the brass ruler. I’ve removed the pen loop for now. Perhaps I should’ve purchased the B-size folio but honestly I’m still really happy with my A5 foilio and its portability. Also this won’t be the only time I’ll purchase from Galen Leather. The craftsmanship is superb, I’ve already got my eye on a few other products.
