Leather Quality: Full Grain
A sleek, timeless leather portfolio has many uses. An impressive way to carry your tablet or documents to an interview, meeting or presentation. The Hancock Portfolio is crafted from our finest full grain leather and features an ambidextrous orientation so anyone can enjoy it. Read the rest of the story below.
Our full grain leather is rich in character and the surface is natural, not sanded or altered. This means you may see naturally occurring small scars, creases, and striations. These minor markings are not flaws - they are features and a hallmark of quality leather.
The leather also has natural color variation. No two hides are identical. So you may notice some color variation even among products that are the same color.
Like a fine wine, our leather gets even better as it ages, developing a rich patina. The leather is very durable but proper care and maintenance is recommended. We offer a specially formulated all-natural leather cream that works wonderfully with our leather.
We use full grain leather made from strong North American steer hides - the best you can get. Learn how our products are made.
We use solid brass hardware with antique finish. A premium old-school rarity not used by most bag makers.
We use heavy gauge bonded thread to make our leather goods. It may be overkill, but that's what we do.
After my first year of law school, I had an opportunity to interview for a paid summer internship at a local law firm. I put together a cover letter and resume, carefully refining them until I was confident they were near perfect. When I went into the interview, I proudly handed the guy my cover letter and resume. After the interview, I called a friend who worked there and asked if he had heard anything. He said they liked me, but I hadn’t signed my cover letter and the hiring partner was wondering if I was serious. I was devastated. I couldn’t believe I had forgotten to put my John Hancock on the cover letter. I was convinced my legal career had ended before it even began.
Luckily, they hired me anyway. So when I designed this Portfolio, I wanted to create something that would help you make the right impression at your next meeting.
