No. 18 Personalized Leather Portfolio
This well-designed portfolio will upgrade your most important business meetings from day one. When you buy this full-grain leather folio, you’re buying American vegetable-tanned steer hide that has received a minimum of alteration. 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.
The way Colonel sees it, leather tells a story and over-processing robs the piece of its life and character. Our more 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.

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.
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.
