Gillio A5 Appunto Zip

Gillio released a very succeful line of leather notebook covers, called Appunto, in various sizes, all of which are with a clasp closure. One of the avid fans then suggested Gillio make a zip version! As a result, the A5 Appunto Zip was born. My friend and I couldn’t help ourselve so we purchased together to save on shipping from Europe to Australia.


  • Dimensions: 24 x 18 cm x 3 cm (closed) / 24 x 36 cm (open)
  • Full width back pocket
  • 6 card pockets at the front
  • 1 full height pocket behind the card pockets
  • 1 zip pocket at the back
  • 1 secretarial pocket in front of the zip pocket
  • 1 pen loop
  • Smooth zipper with a leather pull

The organiser does not sit flat since the leather used for the full width back pocket is shorter in width to accomodate folding.

Another thing to note is the lining of the pockets are not leather. They are a different material called Sky – a strong leather like thin material used for lining to minimise bulk.

Epoca Royal Blue

This leather is soft and pebbly. making the organiser flexible.

Croc Eye Blue

This leather is stiffer than the Epoca line as this leather has a crocodile print. Gillio has three kinds of crocodile print leathers: matte, shiny and croc eye. The matte and shiny only differ in finish, while the croc eye looks quite different with smaller and more 3D “scales”.

NB: this leather is not real crocodile leather
