Our Leather Folio was born out of our own need for something that would carry more than a simple laptop sleeve but without wanting to carry around a bag or some sort of briefcase. Whether you call it a portfolio, padfolio, folder or attache, it can accommodate your documents, iPad, passport, pens, charging cable, a notepad or magazine, USB stick, SD Card, credit card or other things you need, all as well as your laptop. With five sleeve pouches of different sizes and one full length zip that opens two separate compartments of varying sizes, the folio is versatile and practical. Made for 13" Macbooks, the leather folio is great for commuters, attending meetings, going on flights and other journeys or simply for protecting your laptop and keeping everything together when placing it in your bag or at home. We designed the leather laptop folio to be practical and do what we needed it to do but we also wanted to make sure it looks fantastic, is well made and environmentally considered. This meant the choice of leather and how the folios are made was extremely important. We chose a top grain vegetable tanned leather that is tanned for 60 days in a tannery that is Gold Medallion Rated by the Leather Working Group, an international organisation whose mission is to promote sustainable and environmental practices within the leather industry. Vegetable tanning is the least environmentally impactful tanning process as it utilises the tannic acids naturally found in some trees and plants rather than the harmful chemicals used in the more popular, faster and cheaper, chromium tanning process. Whilst much more expensive, veg tanning also results in rich natural colours, warm tones, high durability and strength, plus that famous leather smell and all-important patina. Once the leather is ready, the Folios are then handmade by a group of skilled artisans using traditional skills in Leon, Mexico, an area renowned for its leather craftsmanship. Our Leather Folios are made for men and women that appreciate design, the thoughtful use of materials and craftsmanship.
