No. 20 Small, Handmade Leather Portfolio

This beautiful, full-grain leather padfolio will upgrade your memory the old-fashioned way. Conveniently sized for travel hither and yon, this little beauty can accompany you on adventures by plane, train, and automobile. It also looks awfully good on your bedside table or out and about on shopping excursions. Personalize with up to 3 initials.

In today’s fast-paced world, there’s just too much to remember. And, when the brain hits overload, there’s no easy, add-on memory chip solution. I decided an easily transportable travel-size portfolio was just what I needed to jot down ideas or anything else I wanted to remember.

  1. This is the second product I have purchased. The black with brown trim leather portfolio is gorgeous! I purchased this as a graduation gift and am beyond satisfied with the quality. I know the recipient will love it!

  2. Last few years I have been trying to replace my regular and every day use items with quality stuff. My portfolios were next up on the list. These are by far the best quality that I have found. Being from a small Appalachian town much like the Col. I feel like I know him. He reminds me so much of the down to earth, kind, small town neighbors that I call friends. I am ecstatic with the quality and beauty of the ports that I got today! Lord willing, I will certainly be a repeat customer!

  3. We purchased two of the No. 20 Travel Portfolios and upon receiving our order my husband decided he would rather have one in vintage brown rather than the black he had originally ordered. He called and spoke with Judy who was more than accommodating in making the return/exchange happen. He also asked if his initials could be added to the new portfolio which they said would be no problem. The customer service, along with the high quality of goods that Colonel Littleton provides is the best that we have ever experienced. Not only are the leather products of the utmost highest quality, but it’s also very obvious that time and care is taken to package and wrap each item carefully. The extra happy included along with the postcards and info inside the green checkered bag makes receiving and opening the order like getting a special present. This has been our experience each time we’ve ordered from Colonel Littleton. In this day and age that we live in there are not any other companies that I know of who provide this type of true dedicated customer service. We are proud of our Colonel Littleton products that we have and are also very thankful to know that there is still a place where you can buy quality leather goods with the personal customer care that we have received. The world would be a better place if folks would take some life lessons from The Colonel’s approach in how to treat people. Thanks again for all that you do and for helping us!

  4. Such an exceptional product. Saw it referenced on a YouTube video by an exceptional family (thanks Carolyn and Josh) that values US Small Business. Super fast shipping and beautifully wrapped. High quality and such an affordable price. This will be a daily go to – can’t wait to order my next self love gift. (the MoonPie was a touching surprise as well).

  5. I bought this portfolio a couple months ago to supplement my larger Col. Littleton portfolio. This is the perfect size for throwing into your bag as you head out to jobs. I find the notepad style more useful every day than the journal as I’m constantly needing to make a list of tasks, ideas, projects and so on. I so overuse these that I had to buy a new set of the insert pads. So, this breaks the Littleton rule of being a want over a need. Once you start using them, they quickly become as much a need as a want.

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 steerhide 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.
