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.

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. Extras 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.

  3. Was searching for a leather 3 ring binder. Absolutely love the No 19 binder!!! It is just as shown and better than expected. Great experience ordering from Col Littleton too and great communication! Loved the moon pie as well.

  4. I have always loved leather notebooks and have bought several through the years. The No. 19 is the very best I have ever found! It is beautifully crafted, the leather smells wonderful and is of the highest quality — it truly is a work of art! And I will always treasure it!


  5. Had a great experience ordering with Col. Littleton and many thanks to Selena for her help. The No. 19 Notebook is a high quality and useful piece and a must add for any professional’s collection.


  6. Love this


  7. Great product my husband is very pleased!


  8. I have been trying cases for 42 years. My partner just presented me with this magnificent portfolio. I love it. Judges comment on it. Jurors admire it. Great work. r


  9. Fantastic! My husband gave this notebook to me. I am a teacher, and I use it to organize the memos, lists and calendars I receive throughout the year. It is really beautiful and functional.


  10. Another great product. Would recommend to anyone who needs full size letter hole punched notebook.


  11. I’m never disappointed when receiving a product from Colonel Littleton or giving a gift from the same. Customer service is always tremendous!


  12. (*&%^&$* AWESOME!
    What else can I say… A beautiful product. Was not perfectly pleased with my purchase so I contacted the staff. The customer service was fantastic. Efficient and courteous was the issue dealt with to my complete satisfaction! This is how it must have been back in the day when pride in craftsmanship was the norm, not the exception. You certainly get what you pay for here at the col. Sturdy and meaningful products that will stand up to the test of time and use. Good Job!!


  13. I am an author and rely on a computer to create my work. But the art of writing is re-writing, and for that it’s paper and pencil. I had been looking for a handsome leather 3-ring notebook when it dawned on me the Colonel would have a solution. This notebook does not strive to be excellent, it IS excellent and fits my needs perfectly. Thank you Colonel and your staff for producing top quality, American-made products – TONY

  14. My first purchase…initial product was not what I wanted so I worked with the staff and received perfection! ~with a return label back, which I truly appreciate.
    This Notebook is beautiful; I will use this for work…my only desire, after the fact, is why did I not have them put my initials on this…………I am sad for this misstep on my part, but my error. The Notebook 19 is what I have been looking for, for a very long time…not many people make this design. Thanks Colonel, and Naleta!


  15. This notebook is excellent. My assistant prepares a daily schedule for my notebook, and I have relevant documents follow. This is a good system for me. The notebook is appropriate for any setting. This is my third Col Littleton portfolio, and I have given several as gifts. This product is a perfect item – there is nothing to add or subtract. It is simple, elegant and perfect.

  16. This is the best notebook out there.

    I dungeon master Dungeons & Dragons adventures for my friends and at a local game shop. Which means, I have to write and draw a lot of stories and maps, and be able to change them or add to them at any moment. Traditionally bound-notebooks don’t don’t allow for addition of pages and are getting more expensive every day. Cheap 3 hole notebooks binders have sharp corners and break after a few uses.

    This notebook on the other hand, while a little expensive , will definitely save you a lot of money in the long term! It is also very comfortable to carry in any bag, it’s adjustable so that you can carry a lot or little, and it’s extremely thematically looking for any fantasy role-playing game!

    The inside pocks are great for storing additional loose papers like maps, character sheets, or pictures of monsters! The two dividers that come with the notebook are great for separating different subjects or campaigns you might be working on at the moment.

    Since I don’t have much money to waste I make sure to buy things that will last me a while, and this notebook surely feels like it will last 100 years!

    Now I need to save up some more money to get that No. 10 Writing Board!

  17. I would agree with the other reviewers that this is a great product. I received it as a gift from my wife, and I have been using it in my role as our company’s vice president of human resources every day since. I receive a ton of compliments on it, and it’s a great way to stay organized throughout the day. I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the products that I have bought over the years from Col Littleton, and this one continues that tradition of fine gear for home or office. Keep up the good work!


  18. I love my new vintage notebook. It was exactly what I was looking for. I am a huge admirer of the products in this store. I’m an assistant costume designer and this is the perfect way to keep myself organized. Besides being functional it is also a classic piece that is fashionable and incredibly well made. It is so unique. It fits scripts, notes and all of the other stuff I need to have with me through the day. I couldn’t be happier! And thanks for the fast delivery, beautiful presentation and tasty moon pie! 🙂

  19. The personal service from Col. Littleton is absolutely amazing. I wanted to purchase this item thru Amazon to utilize “Amazon Smiles” as well as some Amazon gift cards. The next day after I emailed customer service Col. Littleton put my portfolio on Amazon for me so I could buy. Guess what? I received the product the next day. Wow!! The portfolio is exactly what I had been searching for and I love it.


  20. This is a terrific gift
    My wife has seen me carrying my notebook for over a year now and envied it to the point I was afraid it was going to wind up in her briefcase. When she changed jobs it seemed like a good time to remedy the situation so I got one for her as a gift. She loves it. When it arrived in her office several people saw it and commented on how beautiful it was.

    Thanks again to the fine folks at Colonel Littleton for making a great product


  21. Excellent Product
    I’ve used mine now for just over a year and it gets better looking everyday. Lots of people have commented on it’s appearance and how nice the leather looks. The size is just right to carry a couple of pads, a folder or two and reference materials as I move around offices during the day.

    The service provided by your store in Lynnville was awesome. I had wanted this for a long time and finally decided to buy it on a whim as I was driving from Birmingham to Nashville. I called ahead to see what the store hours were, if they would still be open by the time I got there, and they were waiting on me, with the personalization already done. They went above and beyond the call to take care of me.


  22. Excellent piece of business gear.
    I have used your most excellent No. 19 Notebook for just over one year now and I have to say it looks better every day!! I get comments on this piece every time I spread it on my desk or a conference table for a meeting. It is a handsome piece of gear that brings visions of Indianna Jones or Alan Quartermain to even the meekest resident at the table!!!

    I gave this piece a 5 star rating, but I would have clipped the very tip off one of the stars if I could have for one reason and one reason only. There is one thing that I would love to have seen in this notebook that it does not have, and that one thing is a simply loop (or two) to hold a mechanical pencil and perhaps a matching ball point or roller ball tip marker!! Other than that, this is the slickest piece of business gear I have seen!!


  23. Absolutely Great
    A wonderful addition to many fine things I have purchased from Colonel Littleton.

Our Story

Our Warranty
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.

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.
