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.
