why this product

This handmade leather case fits your 13-inch laptop, as well as important documents or presentations. The simple, two-button snap closure makes it easy to slide documents in and out—so your papers will be crisp and at the ready.

Two seasoned leathersmiths from the Netherlands crafted this leather portfolio case in their Brooklyn-based workshop. The design of the case was inspired by a custom request from a customer for a large portfolio case to fit his architectural drawings—this smaller sized portfolio is made for the everyday carry of your laptop and documents.

use & care

Care for the leather by conditioning periodically with neatsfoot oil or wax as well as our Beeswax Leather Conditioner. Keep away from moisture and direct sunlight to prevent fading.


production & design

Kika Vliegenthart and Sabine Spanjer create modern accessories using traditional leatherworking methods. Their goal is to craft high-quality leather goods that will last a lifetime, with leather sourced from Europe as well as from within the U.S., such as with this portfolio case made from Chicago’s Horween Leather Company, founded in 1905. The pair are vocal about their indebtedness to legendary leathersmith Barbara Shaum, with whom Kika apprenticed for over 15 years.
