Platform Portfolio in hand-colored, water repellent, colorfast linen and leather.

natural or tannery-colored leather trim $1075
hand-colored leather trim $2150.

Linen, which is derived from the flax plant, is about 30% stronger than cotton canvas of the same weight. Linen requires less water and fewer pesticides than cotton to grow which makes linen one of the most sustainable natural fabrics to cultivate.

We custom hand-color and hand-finish Belgian artist linen to make your colorfast, stain and water repellent Platform Portfolio. We mix colors in our workshop to dye linen the color you specify. Let us know the color of vegetable tanned leather trim you prefer: natural (which darkens to a saddle brown color), espresso or black. By special order, we’ll hand-grain and hand-color your bag’s leather trim whatever color you request.

Tell us what you carry in your bag. Without extra cost, we’ll adapt our patterns to make your portfolio the dimensions you need to accommodate your gear. Your portfolio’s platform base makes it as stable and easily organized as our top loading travelers’ briefcase styles.

Our family has been making bags in San Francisco for 45 years. Call us, or join Kari, Myron and Ely in our workshop via a free video chat to customize your made to-measure Platform Portfolio to look and work the way you want it to.

Size range: mini tablet/A5 through laptop/A4, all $750. Hand-colored versions are available for $1500.

• In addition to having your bag hand-cut to the size that best suits you, you can choose natural or tannery dyed leathers, either an all leather or webbing-and-leather shoulder strap made to the ideal length for your needs, hardware in matte silver or solid brass, and your selection of lining and thread colors. Hand-painted, organic luggage linen and hand-grained, hand-colored leathers are
also available.

• Your bag will unzip from top center to its free-standing padded base, so you can see all contents at a glance, free of worry that you’ve left something behind. We also make optional organizers in sailcloth and leather to manage your gear tangle-free and compartmentalize your bag for changing technology.
