A Quick Tour
Pen Sleeves in Closure
Two built-in sleeves allow you to securely store pens where they can be reached without opening the portfolio, while keeping them safe and protected.
Outer Utility Pocket
A small zipper pouch sits below the pen sleeves in the closure, perfect for stashing smaller stationary or tech items.
Business Card Pockets
The inside front cover is loaded with storage. It starts with these business card pockets near the top corner.
Interior Utility Pocket
Just below the business card pockets is a zippered pocket big enough for standard-sized smartphones. It also works as a built-in pencil case or tech storage compartment.
The document pocket secures letter sized papers, brochures, reports, or pages from the pad you'd like to save for later review.
The lined pocket just under the document pocket holds tablets up to 10.5". It can also serve as a second document pocket.
The Walker Series' original design was the seed for the Visionary Collection. Its snap storage closure and integrated tech storage options inspired the entire collection through its success and customer feedback over four years and thousands of happy customers. So when we created the Visionary Collection, we wanted to honor a true inspiration. Madam C.J. Walker is just that. She holds the Guinness World Record as the first female self-made millionaire. She was an African American woman born in the South just after the Civil War, orphaned at the age of seven, and yet went on to break barriers and build a business empire that created opportunities for tens of thousands of women of color. Madam Walker inspires us to face challenges with determination, and to use our success to create opportunity for others.

Ecuadorian Latigo Leather
We’re big fans of promoting quality of life for animals throughout the supply chain so we source our leather from a place where virtually all cattle are free-range, grass-fed, and factory farms are nearly impossible to find.
We worked directly with the tannery to craft the perfect leather for our products. They use a hybrid between top-grain and full-grain processing, removing just enough material to improve the look while retaining durability we can guarantee for life. Then they top that off with a hydrophobic treatment so you don't have to worry about a little rain or the occasional spill.
From there the tannery finishes our leather two ways. The browns are a matte finish, designed to show marks and age very easily, quickly developing a classic aged-leather patina. But they can easily be cleaned and conditioned to buff out the wear marks. The idea here is that you can dial in how much age/character you want your piece to show based on how often you condition it - just like folks used to shine their shoes (or maybe you still do!).
The black is a pebbled finish, we've found folks who choose black leather often prefer less of a “rustic character" look, so this one won't show wear as quickly as our browns and has a classic, polished look.
Tex 70 Nylon Stitching
Nylon thread has an excellent strength-to-size ratio, some stretch and flex capability, and high resistance to abrasion. These qualities make it ideal for leather goods with a lifetime guarantee. The thread can move and stretch with the leather while retaining its durability.
Top Notch Hardware
It's all in the details. Hardware is a common failure point, and failure is not really our thing. So we overbuild the hardware and cut no corners. We also keep our hardware inline with our minimalist geometric design approach.
Bull Denim Lining
No flimsy lining here. Our lining is a heavy yet soft canvas-like bull denim. It comes in three colors, black, black, and black. While lining can sometimes be a decorative touch, we prioritized its ability to do its job for years to come over trendy designs or colors.
There is only one name in the zipper game if you are serious about quality. YKK. And we're proud to use their products in ours.
In the box
Packaging represents 1/3 of municipal waste. We keep ours simple to save space, but make it by hand so that you know what's inside is loved. Each piece is wrapped in recycled kraft paper packaging and includes a story of leather and care instructions. Your portfolio also includes a pad of paper.
The simplest and most powerful guarantee we could create.
- If we made it, it is guaranteed for life. We will repair or replace anything.
- If you buy it, you'll love it. If you don't, we'll work with you until you do, or you can return it for a full refund.
- No questions asked, no paperwork needed.
- If you lose it, or it gets destroyed outside of reasonable use, we'll sell you a replacement at half price.
- Lots of companies use words like "reasonable use" as a loophole. We don't. Wear and tear is part of reasonable use, and it is covered.

Our products are handcrafted, mostly to order. We make our smaller pieces in small batches of 10-20 items at a time. Because of the custom, handcrafted nature of our products, it usually takes us 2-3 business days to prepare your order for shipment.
Estimated shipping times begin when your order is shipped and vary by the carrier and service you choose. First-class and ground services usually take up a to a week to deliver to the United States and international first-class services usually take upwards of 3-4 weeks to deliver once we ship your package.
Please note that all carriers are experiencing delivery delays right now. It's important to us that you get your order as quickly as possible, but unfortunately after we drop off your package for shipping the delivery timeline is out of our hands. USPS and FedEx will be your best bet for tracking down information about your package. If you are having trouble getting answers, or if you just want some peace of mind, feel free to shoot us a message with questions or concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I came back here after 4 years to order a new one for my friend who is graduating. This is my third padfolio but the first to last 4 years. It was twice as expensive but you really get what you paid for: US made (quality and crazy good guarantee), the higher leather quality is noticeable (it is my third padfolio but this lasts), and my most recent complement for it was a week ago on the patina (not my thing but love complements). I highly recommend this product and respect the quality enough to be back to get one for someone else. Combined with a good leather satchel/bag (2 compartment to carry laptop). When my current bag breaks, it is not from allegory, I will be back here to get one.
Only had it for couple of weeks but I love it. The leather is warm to the touch and robust. I know this thing will age beautifully and look even better in a few years. Yes, it wasn’t cheap but I expect this to be the last portfolio I ever buy.
Get it for your grads as this thing will last them a lifetime.
Absolutely fantastic, would absolutely recommend.
I have had this padfolio since 2018 and it is arguably the most important piece of Kit I have as a professional. It is my favorite things that I touch every single day. I cannot thank the team who created this enough for helping gift to me such an incredibly important tool for my craft. These stains you see on my photo are the different ink colors I have written on within this. It has been years in the making. I love this thing a ton.
This is such a wonderful padfolio. It has enough storage to put most of my desk things in. It’s so easy to fold up and go that it makes for the easiest portable desk top I’ve ever had.
Additionally, the compliments I get at work on it are pretty consistent.
