Made by hand in Rustico’s workshop in Orem, Utah, these leather portfolios come in two sizes. One is meant to hold a 5-by-8-inch notepad, while the other can accommodate a standard legal-size notepad. And for those who need higher paper quality, the large pad can accept a Rhodia no. 18 notepad. Both feature top-grain leather with a hand-stitched buckle closure, a pen loop, and interior pockets. Slide in the notepad of your choice, and when all the pages are filled, simply swap in a new one and pick up writing right where you left off.
Note: At checkout, choose the small portfolio (base price) or the large portfolio (+ $70) in any of the following leather colors: black, buckskin, burgundy, charcoal, dark brown, ocean, saddle, or stone. All portfolios will be made to order after the drop ends.
It started with a bookbinding course, some top-grain leather, and a ream of cotton rag paper. Now, Rustico employs more than 30 people and produces a range of fine leather and paper goods, from journals to wallets and beyond. Avoid leaving your portfolio in the sun and steer clear of chemicals; over time, the natural oils on your skin will give the leather a patina of creases, scuffs, and fades to reflect your personal use. For additional conditioning, Rustico recommends using Dr. Martens Wonder Balsam, or a similar all-natural care product.
