Tutorial for your Midori Traveler's Notebook Binder

The concept behind a notebook is to write down all kinds of notes (albeit your brainstorms/dreams about that little cafe you want to open some day, or just some errands that need to be done,  a phonenumber you should call later or the adress of the meeting you will be attending). Such notes need to be remembered. The length of time of this particular need varies on the kind of note. Some notes may be forgotten swiftly, some may never.

Midori Traveler's Notebook Binder is designed for this need to remember what you wrote down earlier. And may I say, well executed as well.

This binder will keep up to five of the Midori Traveler's Notebook paper refills. It is like a win-win situation; having your notes stored in a efficient way plus the binder is just really pretty with its kraft carton shell.

When opening the Binder you will find 5 metal rods (hence storing up to 5 refills). With a little pulling, you can get these rods out one by one.

As with your Midori Traveler's Notebook , open your refill in the middle of the notebook and place the rod on it.

Then, place the refill plus rod like on the picture above and squeeze that rod back into place.

Easy does it.

Tutorial for Midori Traveler's Notebook regular size

How to use your Midori Traveler's Notebook regular size

A Midori Traveler's Notebook comes in a standard pack. This pack contains a leather cover (in black or brown leather), a cotton dustbag, a plain paper refill (003 Plain refill), a spare rubber band and is packed in a beautiful kraft paper box.

Midori Traveler's Notebook has a signature roughly hand cut leather cover. The paper refill are replaceable with new ones. Various kinds of paper refills exists, ranging from the standard Lined, Grid and Plain papers (refills numbers 001, 002 and 003), to a travel diary for two months (refill number 005). 
Special drawing papers are also available. For example a sketch book with thicker pages, a light weight paper refill with thinner and more pages (128 instead of the usual 64) or a kraft paper refill (refill number 012, 013 and 014). 
These refills are also perfect notebooks on itself, without the leather cover.

Besides replacing your paper refill in your Midori Traveler's Notebook, it is also possible to add more paper refills.

With a first method, the second notebook is placed on top of the first one. 

In this way they 'share' on elastic band that keeps them connected to your notebook, see the picture below.

The second method is to use the backside of the rubberband that is keeping the standard paper refill in place. 

With a bit of a stretch the rubberband, you can easily fit in a second paper refill. This way, the two notebooks are kept next to each other, instead of on top of each other.

The plastic inserts, like our favorite no 008 Zipperfile, 007 Cardfile and the 004 or 006 Pocket stickers, enable you to carry all you need in an organized and efficient way. 

The Pocket Stickers are (small) pockets that can be attached inside of your leather cover.

The Pocket Stickers are an easy and handy solution for papers and notes you carry around. You can even slip in a smaller/thinner notebook or notepad behind it. 

The 004 Pocket Stickers contains three smaller pockets, of which one for holding your business cards.

The 007 Cardfile and 008 Zipperfile can be easily inserted by sliding them next to the paper refill.
