The origin of Filofax go back as far as the First World War when an Englishman working in the USA, came across an American organizing system consisting largely of technical leaves for engineers and scientists. Shortly after this discovery, a London based company was formed to market personal organization systems. In 1930 they registered the trademark "Filofax", the name having derived from the description "file of facts".
The business continued to grow and moved to larger premises in Ilford in Essex, and by 1987 had a retail network of 1,250 outlets in the UK alone, with many others in the world's major cities.
The Filofax personal organizer had developed from a simple loose-leaf diary and notebook into an indispensable organizer and status symbol for the 80s. Prestigious stores around the world stocked Filofax, Harrods and Harvey Nichols in London, Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdales in the US, Bon Genie in Switzerland, Galleries Lafayette in Paris and Seibu in Japan amongst others.
Today the Filofax personal organizer continues to be a valuable and practical asset to people in all walks of life.
