The Ford Series mirrors the design philosophy of its namesake. How can a long-lasting and quality product serve as many people as possible? By focusing on only the most important features. No closure, just secure pockets for your most important items and notes. Henry Ford was more than a successful businessman, he also pioneered workers’ rights. His perspective that a healthy and happy workforce produces (and buys) more cars led him to cut the work day to eight hours and the work week to five days, all while paying double what other factories paid. Rather than using his innovative manufacturing techniques to simply increase his own profits, he fundamentally shifted the employer-employee relationship. Ford inspired us to rethink traditional processes for our craft, and to treat our team as the foundation for our success.

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.
What's 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 have several portfolios from Allegory with zippers or snap buttons, so I wanted to change for a simpler designed portfolio. I am very happy with the product. It is easy to use, well made and very durable. I really like Allegory's product because it is very well thought in its design, and beautiful without being pretentious. Those looking for perfection in details should probably look elsewhere, but personally I appreciate the roughness and uniqueness of each item. A brand, inspiring concepts and product to definitely explore.
Perfect size, strength, weight. Leather looks good. Selling points were (1) made in America and (2) the lifetime warranty. Will look here first when I need a zippered pad folio.
