No. 18 Personalized Leather Folder

This well-designed, personalized leather padfolio will upgrade your most important business meetings from day one.

Made in the Col. Littleton Workshop in a variety of colors, this 12” H x 9.5” W polished leather folder is just the right size for business or pleasure.

When you buy this full-grain leather folio you’re buying American, vegetable-tanned steer hide that has received a minimum of alteration. 

The way I see it, leather tells a story and over-processing robs the piece of its life and character. Our natural leather changes and evolves over the years. It develops a wonderful patina and gives you the rich, lived-in look of antique leather goods. The longer you carry it, the better it looks and feels.– Colonel Littleton

Leather in its natural state is not static – it breathes and has life and is pliable if you don’t process the life out of it. 

  • Two-position solid brass snap front allows room for carrying extra documents.
  • The front may be personalized with three initials in lower, right corner.  Initials personalized First, Middle, Last.
  • Portfolio’s inside front pocket holds extra 8.5” x 11” documents and includes a business card pocket.

    While this purchase was for a gift, I opened to take a look and it is beautifully designed and crafted. Very high quality product and I think I will need to purchase one for myself.

    I take a notepad with me to every meeting. After this portfolio arrived last week, I often have had it with me. In five days, my boss commented twice how much he liked it and wanted one. The color is beautiful, the interior very soft, and the leather smell is incredible. The feature that surprised me the most is the quality of the notepad that came with it. With the design and thickness of the pages, I doubt I’ll be going back to Staples for refills. This portfolio is worth every cent and a joy for someone who still clings to pen and paper.

    One of my favorite things. A friend of mine gave me my first Colonel Littleton portfolio many years ago and it was one of those items that got better with age. So much so, my son decided that he needed it. I gladly gave it to him and just received the new one that I ordered. The customer service is pretty nice too.

    Received the No. 18 leather portfolio in brown as a qift from a client after I had commented on theirs. They had it engraved with my initials too! This is by far the best quality portfolio I’ve ever had and look forward to using it for a long time! I was very impressed with the packing and presentation that Colonel Littleton does. . . top notch!!!

    Very, very few things in this world are designed for the left-hander. And, sadly, even fewer items are made in the U.S.A. anymore that are heirloom quality, hand-made from natural materials, lovingly packaged with extra goodies, delivered in days exceeding all expectations.

    I’ve bought a lot of stuff in my 54 years and can honestly say that when I opened my “left-handed No 18. Portofolio”, I felt compelled to purchase more goods from Colonel Littleton. Never had that happen before. This first purchase experience made me a lifelong customer. Well done, Colonel. I didn’t think companies like yours existed anymore. There is hope for our country afterall.

Our Story

Our Warranty

We are committed to producing quality, handcrafted products that showcase our time-honored standards of excellence and deep respect for the Americana tradition. Col. Littleton products go through rigorous testing and numerous quality inspections before being shipped to our customers. Should you receive a Col. Littleton product that is defective in materials or workmanship, you can count on us to make it right. Our guarantee is limited to the cost of the product itself. It also does not cover normal wear and tear. We feel if you just plain “wore it out,” you got your money’s worth. Also, we cannot be responsible for an item which has suffered through alteration, damage due to improper cleaning, improper use, mishandling or accident. If we made a mistake in personalizing your product or if the product is defective in materials or workmanship, of course we’ll replace it. Otherwise, personalized products are not returnable.

Our Leather

Leather is a passion for me. There are more kinds of leather and leather processing out there than you can shake a stick at. You can mold leather into just about any shape or form. You can make every hide look just alike. You can dye it green, blue or even pink. You can apply a finish, coat it, spray it or make it look slick and shiny. That’s not what we’re about at Col. Littleton. To me the beauty is in the naturalness of the leather. People always comment to me about the special “feel” of our leather and how it becomes even more beautiful after it has some wear on it. It’s all about our leather process. When you buy Col. Littleton leather goods, you’re buying, for the most part, full-grain American vegetable-tanned steer hide that has received a minimum of alteration. We don’t apply a finish to hide character markings. The way I see it, every marking tells a story and covering them robs the piece of its life and character.

Our Craftsmanship

I see a real resurgence in the country today for products made in America. Our focus is to design and create products that speak to the time-honored traditions that have made this country great such as handmade craftsmanship, authentic rich leathers and quality workmanship. There’s a nostalgic feel about the products we make . . . most of them could have been made 100 years ago and many are made using turn-of-the-20th-century methodology and machinery. Our products are true Americana; forged as our forefathers intended by people who care and take pride in making a beautiful product.
