Leather Quality and Craftsmanship
Giramondo is made out of Italian Epoca vegetable dyed leather and it comes with a certificate and serial number. Some people might not care, but I think the serial # and certificate shows the quality and confident Gillio stands for their product. The Giramondo I own shows wrinkles on the surface, yet, the touch is smooth. The craftsmanship of my Giramondo is impeccable. I am super picky when it comes to leather goods. When I got this notebook, I exam every corner, connecting point, edges and sewing and cannot find any flaws.

Functionality, Design and Weight
Unlike traditional traveler's notebook, Gillio incorporates ring binder ideas into Giramondo. It comes with credit card pockets, full length pocket and secretarial pockets. I do not need to buy other folder inserts to hold my loss papers. The design of the notebook is very clean, classic and simple which make it as a timeless piece. On top of all those, the weight of this leather cover is a lot lighter compare with others I own.
