Cindy Russell, Bespoke Filofax cover
As I have got older, I have discovered that, for me, good quality is important; good quality boots for the winter, good quality tack for my horse, good quality food. Having less of something, but of higher quality works well for me.
So, when I wanted to get a Journal cover to keep my work diary in, I firstly looked at Filofax, but I could not quite find the individual style that I wanted, certainly not at a price I thought was realistic.
Having been acquainted with the work of Gavin Jones, St Day Leather, by a friend who had bought customized reins and spur straps, I started looking through his portfolio of work. After a couple of email enquiring about what might be possible, Gavin helped me work out exactly what I wanted from the Journal cover, size, pockets, type of leather etc…then designed and made it for me.
The cover is beautiful, the workmanship excellent, and the whole experience from start to finish was actually very exciting. Seeing something unique being made, knowing that this will be the only one like this, then receiving it and using it, is lovely.
Gavin kept me up to date the whole way through the process, and put pictures on line so that I could see which stage it had reached.
If you are looking for an unusual or special item, a journal cover, a pair of spur straps, reins, a briefcase (I am saving for one of those!) then I would highly recommend St Day Leather. Go on treat yourself, or actually, just realize that high quality is worth the price and the work that goes into it. And the prices here will not break the bank…excellent quality, excellent value.
