Van Der Spek binders can be found here. I had never heard of them until recently when they were mentioned in one of the groups I frequent. What fascinated and intrigued me was that you can actually order a customised binder from them. From what I remember it was not overly pricey, considering the work that went into it.
Look at this beauty – the A5 Manager. Gorgeous leather and lots of credit card slots in a practical constellation.
Here is the A5 Manager with agenda refill. Look at that full length pocket at the back and the gorgeous pockets on this one!
This one is a custom binder.
‘Design your own Van der Spek article with a classic leather type as a base and a fashion color to add a trendy touch. Furthermore you can choose the color of the stitching and cover flap.’
Images of gorgeous custom binders are dancing in my head – maybe a purple binder (or cover as Van Der Spek calls them) with green stitching with green lining. Or Grey croc with hot pink suede lining. Absolute heaven!
And I have save the best for last – the A5s have 35mm rings!
