Undyed Folio B5 Stunning!

Love my new Undyed Folio B5! Treated it twice with Rapide Leather grease brown to get the colour I like.

I will write a review in one month.

I love that I can carry everything in one pouch without having to carry separate fountain pen pouches and papers. Moreover, I don't know if the iPad Mini 7 will be released in March, but I bought it with that in mind as well. It's really easy to solve with just one "folio case". However, the “Crazy Horse Forest Green” color was so attractive that I bought other products as well.

This was my first order from Galen Leather products. The leather feel of the product itself was great, and the zipper and product construction and composition were also good. There is a big price difference from the Louis Vuitton pouch I have, but the identity of Galen leather is excellent. I am very grateful for the 1-piece pouch, key ring, and devil eye charm provided as a service. The tea bag also smelled really good.

However, it is very disappointing that unlike the first order, the second order, which was placed immediately, only received products without any service gifts.

Loving my Portfolio

I have loaded up my zip portfolio and I use it every day. I am enjoying watching it develop a patina on the leather. It holds so much, and in my recent writing class, it drew a lot of comments from my fellow students.

Beautiful and useful

I love my Crazy Horse Green, large zippered folio. It’s so convenient to have several fountain pens safely with my journal. It’s already had its first road trip.

Best Purchase!

I absolutely love mine! High quality materials, great attention to detail and can hold plenty of supplies. This is my 3rd folio purchase and I'm happy to say I will continue to shop from this lovely company!

Perfect XL Folio

I’ve had my eye on this folio for months, and it exceeds my expectations by a landslide. I love the color, and the overall design is great. Currently I have a Moleskine XL Soft Cover Notebook and loose leaf paper on the right side, and on the left I have my 2020 iPad Pro 11” w/ magic keyboard case(Totals 1.5in thick) & Apple Pencil tucked into the sleeve, 3 pens and a compass in the 4 fixed pen slots, 2 pencils and another pen in the 4 detachable pen slots, the Galen Leather Brass Protractor and a 3x4in notepad occupying the card areas, and lead refills along with a charger in the larger elastic straps. Everything feels high quality including the zipper, I can’t suggest this enough.
(2 improvements I think could be made are adding another zipper to allow it to be opened on either side for easier access to certain pens and things that would be easy to get if I didn’t have to open the folio entirely every single time, and 2nd thing is adding a elastic strap on the right side to hold the notebook closed more securely)

A marriage of luxury and practicality

I bought this zippered notebook cover to hold my B5 watercolour sketchbooks. I also keep fountain pens, travel brushes and erasers in the little pockets so they don't drop when sketching en plein air. It makes a very enjoyable portable work station. Also shown is the EDC wallet with my tiny brass watercolour palette. I've bought a number of Galen products and they always arrive in good time, beautifully presented and ready to be used and enjoyed.
