What's A Filofax?- My Version

As this is a stationery Blog, I guess  I can talk about organisers especially the Filofax Diary!!

For those who do not know what a Filofax is ( like I was  6 months ago) or want to know more about this Then read on...

What is a Filofax?

Well its simply a company well known for producing the unique ring-binder style Diary/Planner/Organiser . Filofax is actually the name of the brand that produces the diaries which can be seen as very unique compared to normal diaries.  obviously there are alot of other Filofax style imitations from other diary companies such as Collins, but they aren't as popular or known as the Filofax.

According to my Research the Filofax was a big item in the 80's, much like how everyone would have an iphone today, or in my case ( a teen living in East London) the Blackberry smartphones!! Although technology is growing there are still some people like myself that prefer to use pen to paper when it comes to organising and remembering dates, and that's when the Filofax comes in handy.I should admit that in my area I think I'm one of the only few people that have a filofax, other than me its only the odd one or two teacher that has a filofax, everyone either uses their phone/tablet or a normal diary to remember dates, which can be awkward for a new user like me lol.

Yes come of you might say why don't i just buy a normal year diary from 99p stores or WH Smith or something, but the Filofax is really unique, with its 6 ring mechanism which allows you to add, subtract and change pages without tearing any pages or making it look like your little brother used it for squiggling. You can also change covers !! yes Filofax stocks many designs and shades of colours for these diaries, its like clothes you can get something that is personal and suits you, these diaries can also be seen as fashion statements matching it with an outfit or change it to flow with this seasons trend. The diary covers also come in rich materials such as leather and even scale effect. Just to add more each organiser has various designs of pockets which can store your credit cards, student pass, money and bit &bobs of paper.

Filofax is a very globalised company with history dating from  US company Lefax. The company is currently based in the UK, but has many global headcourters and one could be right next to you!- ( I think mine is just in the center of The City in London)
