New Filofax Design Brings Trimmings But Not the Ones I Want…


There’s a new design of folder from Filofax, and for a moment I got my hopes up:

Instantly recognizable, but with a twist. Iconic design with a simple one-piece thick leather cover, slightly rounded corners and strap with gel popper cap. Beautiful in its simplicity, with perfectly balanced proportions. Working with extra thick leather and using traditional construction techniques, these personal organizers are made by our UK factory who piece together the components by hand, using thick thread to carefully stitch them together.

Unfortunately it’s still the 25mm (7/8 inch) ring size. I’m still waiting for a new Filofax with a Winchester sized 31mm (5/4 inch) ring size.


No doubt changes are taking place in design and otherwise, given the announcement in April. According to the Telegraph, a Canadian entrepreneur has teamed up with the current chief executive of Filofax to buy the leather organiser company for an undisclosed sum. The new tie-up is expected to help Filofax, which is based in Dalkeith in Scotland, benefit from “economies of scale”, according to sources close to the deal.
