Handmade and looks fantastic!

I love this! When I bring this to meetings it’s a conversation starter because it looks so amazing! Nice quality, you don’t find stuff made like this very often. I highly recommend

Unmatched Craftsmanship and Quality

There are very few other objects that I've held in my hand that feel as well made and thoughtfully designed as the A4 Portfolio that I ordered from Galen. This is thick, sturdy leather that is also smooth to the touch and flexible. There are multiple pen loops and pockets for every accessory and writing implement that you might want to bring with you. It even includes a very creative system that involves velcro straps which allow you to mount both notebooks and notepads in the portfolio.

I remember being put off by the price when I first saw this, because admittedly, it is a lot of money for something that functionally I could have for a lot cheaper. But the thing is, all those lower priced alternatives are machine made and mass produced, and are missing the durability and longevity of Galen products. Holding it in my hands there's a certain ephemeral quality about knowing that this was made by human hands, but there's also a sense that this is something that is going to endure for a long time.

So in short, it's a lot of money, but it's worth it because nothing else comes close to what it is.

On a more personal note, the service from Galen is also excellent and needs to be commended. I originally ordered my portfolio in Crazy Horse Brown, but after submitting my order I had a change of heart. I emailed customer service to ask if it was possible to change the color of my order (I knew the terms of sale said this was impossible, but I decided to try it since the order was only a day old). To my surprise, I received an email saying that a color change was possible. I can't express how happy that made me, and I know it was an exception that might not be made in every case, but it is one more reason why I feel my money was well spent on the A4 Portfolio.

Leather Ipad case

It is a bit bulky, but it is of high quality. Its great for carrying the IPAD and much more including a notebook, pens, etc. Lots of pockets for sticking things in.

Love it

So well made, a true piece of craftsmanship.

Michael Wargo (South Bend, US)
Beautiful Portfolio!

Hand stitched genuine leather. Well constructed. Probably the last portfolio I'll ever have.

G.P. (Fredericton, CA)
Beautiful and Practical

This has quickly become my carry-all to meetings and the envy of my colleagues. It is simply the most beautiful and functional items in my bag. The leather is beautifully tanned and sewn. The folio is designed to be adjustable depending on the users needs. Shipping to Canada was far faster than I expected. It might cost a bit more, but in a year the price difference won't matter as you'll have a beautiful piece of kit.

Beautiful handmade journal

I purchased the brown leather journal for my stepfather as a retirement gift - he plans to write in his retirement. The journal is beautifully made, gorgeous leather and was shipped very quickly. He loves it.

Terry Powell (Codicote, GB)
A4 Leather Padfolio

Superbly crafted leatherwork that is extremely practical yet also stylish. The personalisation just added that extra special touch for something that was a gift to my daughter. I was so impressed that I ordered another one as a gift for someone else who is special to me. And the customer service is exemplary. TP

Eva (Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht, NL)
Top notch

Love this folio. Fits everything I need into my one folio. It looks beautiful, and feels great too. It’s amazing and I’m very happy with it.
