There’s Alligator . . . and then there’s everything else. American Alligator is the epitome of beauty, luxury, and great taste. Treat yourself to this superior quality, easily-transportable portfolio/padfolio which you’ll find to be the ideal size for jotting down notes on the go. Or, place it by your bedside table in the event a stroke of genius, sometimes elusive in the daytime, might strike you while you’re sleeping. Never let a good idea go to waste.
“Even though I’m a fully converted fan of technology, I still enjoy writing things down and ‘thinking on paper.’ This full-grain leather Travel Portfolio will upgrade your memory the old-fashioned way.”
– Colonel Littleton
Construction & Extras
This Travel Portfolio was handmade in the Col. Littleton Private Stock Workshop from authentic wild American Alligator and lined in full-grain, beautifully textured, Tobacco Brown American Buffalo. Colonel personally selected the hides used to make this portfolio and supervised every step of its construction by one of our highly skilled craftsmen.
Other features include edge stitching for durability and a finished look and a convenient interior slash pocket for carrying receipts, tickets, documents, etc. It accommodates a standard 5” x 8” pad and includes Colonel-designed Memorandum Pad which is secured by two buffalo leather straps and may be reordered.
“I like to leave this portfolio by my bedside table. You never know when a million dollar idea might tiptoe across your cerebral cortex in the middle of the night. A good idea not written down may be lost forever.”
Leather accessories, such as travel bags, business bags and writing portfolios are seen by others as extensions of your wardrobe. Colonel will help you keep your image intact with this luxurious American Alligator portfolio no matter where you use it.
6” x 9” closed. Make your Travel Portfolio extra special by adding 3 initials on the inside solid brass plate. Product packaging includes a protective cotton canvas drawstring dust bag with the Col. Littleton logo and a gift box. Handmade in the Col. Littleton Workshop, Lynnville, TN USA.
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.
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.
