No. 19 Leather 3-Ring Binder Portfolio

This personalized leather folder is half binder, half portfolio. With our two-position solid brass snap front, you’ll keep your notes, presentations, and documents in precise order – and encased in our vintage brown polished steerhide. A very attractive upgrade to most binders.

“People have been asking me to make a 3 ring leather notebook for years, so here’s my contribution to the world of organization.”

– Colonel

Our notebook holds standard 8.5” x 11″ three-hole punched materials in 1” diameter rings. Inside you’ll find convenient diagonal pockets in the front and back for stashing additional notes and documents. The two-position solid brass snap front keeps the binder closed tight and loose papers secure. Extra touches like a leather divider and business card pocket add to its convenience and organization. 

Handmade in the Col. Littleton Workshop in Lynnville TN, USA. The professional grade leather binder is edge-stitched, edge-coated and has a leather-reinforced spine. This workhorse is as durable as it is beautiful. Personalize with three initials in front right corner. 

Made with polished American steerhide. Our full-grain leather is both vegetable-tanned and hand-tanned to a smooth finish. Over time, this special leather develops its own natural character and patina – this binder looks even better as it ages.

  1. Love it! I have used one of these for 10 years. Just bought one for my son for his 21st birthday.

  2. I purchased this as a reward to myself as I’m studying for the CPA exam. It looks, feels and smells beautiful. No notebook is worth $260.00 but the joy and motivation that I get from holding, smelling and looking at this piece of fine craftmanship is totally worth it.

  3. I looked around for this type of product and couldnt find one like this. This notebook is very classy and I plan to use for a lifetime. It displays class in every way.
    It is a unique product. You probably can find cheaper products….but this is worth every penny. Very nice!!!

  4. This is the binder I have been looking for. It is beautiful in its quality and simplicity.

  5. What an outstanding product. Beautifully made with quality leather. I was looking for a high quality leather notebook that is built to last for a special project I’m working on. This is it. Well done, Col. Littleton.

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.
