The Deco has always been a fascinating Filofax to me. Filofax describe it as, "Wonderfully decadent, the Deco personal organiser echoes a bygone era of glamour and elegance". They are right. It is gorgeous. The Deco is made from Italian calf leather with a micro crocodile print. Inside is cream pigskin suede interior. I kept eyeing it up and wondering whether to buy it, then after working things out and counting up christmas money I decided to go for it. The deco can be bought here at Filofax but when I decided to buy it they were out of stock. So I phoned up the lovely Dee at the Neal Street shop, and was pleased to find out that they had some.
My Deco was dispatched yesterday by special delivery and I am now pleased to share it with you.
This post will be photo heavy from now on
It arrived in fantastic condition.
On opening the box there was my receipt.
Then there was a complimentary pack which consisted of To do sheets, finance sheets, and A-Z telephone number tabs.
The Deco came wrapped in the customary Filofax tissue paper. And then.....................................................
As soon as I saw her I knew I had made the right choice.
The texture is lovely. The colour is a deep brown and the clasp is fabulous.
Then I opened up the Filofax.
The deco has Six vertical credit card pockets with a full-length pocket behind those. It also has a full-length zipped pocket. The pen loop is slightly elasticated so you don't have to worry about the size of the pen you use in there.
The Deco came with cotton cream inserts.
I have never used cotton cream before and it is lovely paper.
The diary is a week on two pages in just English.
Then there are cream tab dividers consisting of Diary, Notes, Projects, Information, Financial and Addresses.
The Deco has a brown Today marker with it, and To do sheets.
It also has both lined and plain notepaper.
A-Z tabs with two letters per tab.
Inside the back cover there is a full size pocket with a popper fastening.
It is expandable and therefore very roomy.
My overall impression of the Filofax Deco is that it is amazing. I love it, and wish I had bought one sooner. The zip compartment is a bit too snug for my liking really, but the pocket at the back more than makes up for it. Measuring in at 150x200 mm it is bigger than the Personal Malden (140x192mm) but doesn't feel big at all.
Top marks for this Filofax!!!! It is the best purchase I have made. I am going to have a lot of fun with her.
