Malden Magic

Well after reading so much about the Filofax Malden on Philofaxy I wondered whether I should stick with my Kendall Personal & A5 binders...or not.....!  But temptation guided me to order a grey Personal Malden the very next day.

The parcel arrived the following afternoon and I eagerly opened the package and handled the Malden. It smelt nice and clearly is a binder of quality. The first thought that went through my mind was shall I get another!!!!

That evening I transferred everything from the Kendall to the Malden and took it to work the next day. I have to say that I was VERY impressed. 

I do need an organiser that lays flat on the desk as my job is mainly office based. I don't really want to fight the pages to get to the place I want!!! This did not disappoint me and I suspect it will become more flexible as I use it.

I also like the way the cover wraps and closes around the contents, especially when very full!!

I will add another blog about how I have used various Filofaxes over the years soon. In the meantime, Here are some pics - apologies for the quality!


  1. Not just my Grey A5 that looked black when I photographed it then! In the end I used natural sunlight and a circular polarising filter on the lens to get a decent shot of mine.

    My replacement A5 should be with me when I get back to France...

  2. oh man, that grey malden tempts me but i should wait for an osterley

  3. Yay, another Malden user! Love this binder. Glad to see you're liking it.

  4. My crimson one arrived yesterday but I found the cover a bit more spongey. The result is that the when compared to my grey Malden & using the same inserts there is less space on the rings.
