Leather Portfolio Books and Cases for Designers We Love
We've added 3 new leather materials to provide you with even more options when personalizing your portfolio book or case. We hand pick each leather hide which is truly unique with its own natural markings.
Choose from black, brown, or vegetable tan leather and make it yours with an engraving or cut-out treatment. We'll summarize each of our leather materials below with examples of leather portfolios and cases we've had the pleasure of making for our clients.
Each and every one of our custom portfolios and cases are made to order and fabricated in our Vancouver fabrication shop with your design in mind so that it can truly represent your work.
Give us a should if you have any questions. We're here to help!
Custom Brown Leather Portfolio Books and Cases
Our brown leather portfolios vary by availability of hide and the quality is always spectacular. We use Latigo leather, meaning “whip” in Spanish, since it's made by using both chrome tanning and vegetable tanning methods, sharing the great characteristics of both.
Latigo leather is both pliable and durable, making it suitable for portfolio books and cases that will stand the test of time and become even better with use. It's resistant to moisture due to the high amounts of oil its infused with during the manufacturing process and offers great durability while also being supple. We offer engraving and cut-out treatments on all our leather products. Take a look at some examples of our brown leather custom portfolio books and cases below!

Vegetable Tan Leather Portfolios
Due to the careful tanning process and the natural tannins, vegetable tanned leather develops a rich and beautiful patina, a hallmark of high quality leathers. Our vegetable tan leather gets better with time and use and doesn't crack or dry out, giving this leather very long lifespan.
Because this type of leather is produced with oak and spruce bark, it has an earthy and natural tone and smell. The engraved area of our vegetable tan leather portfolios turn a rich brown, making for a stunning contrast between material and treatment.

Black Leather Portfolios and Cases
Similar to our brown leather material, we use black Latigo leather when creating your custom portfolio book and cases. This material is made for rigorous use with an exceptional level of durability so you can use your portfolio book and leather case for years to come.
Did you know that all of our leather portfolio cases are CNC fabricated with a special tab construction without a single stitch of thread?
