Due to the handmade nature, this leather is subject to changes in color, sometimes it can be lighter / darker than in the picture as each hide reacts to the dyeing process differently.

About the Leather

Our leather

Our leather is sourced from Seidel Tanning Corp which is located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Seidel Tanning is a fourth generation, family-owned business that sources all of their hides from US domestic markets. They work to combine new and old techniques, use a combination of chrome and vegetable tanning, and make all of their leather to order. Seidel has worked with us to create the perfect formula for our leather, which has a unique and rugged look. This leather develops a nice patina with use, is durable, and resistant to color fading over time.

What is full grain leather

Basically, leather is trillions of interwoven fibers. The closer you get to the surface, the smaller and denser become those fibers. Hence, the top layer is the strongest and the most durable cut one can buy. The term “Full Grain” is used to define that top, uppermost layer of the cow hide which was not sanded or polished.

What is pull-up effect

We touched on natural extracts and wax & oil finish so you can understand what “pull-up” is. Color migrates and becomes lighter in full grain leather when it is stretched or pulled. Hence the term pull-up. It is a characteristic of natural tanning processes and happens because oils and waxes are displaced on the surface by a movement of the material.

Leather wrinkles

Other characteristics to take note of are wrinkles. As full grain leather is not sanded during production it preserves its natural look. Normally, the cow has wrinkles where the skin was bent, like on the neck, near legs etc. These wrinkles are not removed on purpose. They show that leather is correctly processed full grain top hide.

Leather scars

Same as wrinkles, scars on leather hide are also preserved. During its life the animal may get scratches, insects bites or small wounds. As a result of natural healing there remains a scar. After the hide is separated from the flash, these marks are left untouched as required by the technology.

Chestnut Portfolio

Beautifully made! 4 stars instead of 5, though because the color is more of a basic brown than chestnut and doesn't have the contrasting stitching. Doesn’t really look like the one shown in the pictures.

5"x 8" padfolio

Very well made leather padfolio. Unfortunately, the black canvas olpr. carry-case has a hole in the bottom right corner. Factory defect?

Great padfolio

Quality product and excellent craftsmanship. Love the chestnut color and the leather is fabulous. The pen loop fits my favorite pen perfectly.

What about the pen?

The quality of the materials and craftsmanship of this product are remarkably good, especially for the price point!! I love everything about it. I am bummed, however, that the little elastic loop won't hold my mechanical pencil (because of friction from the grip) or my pen (because of size). A slightly larger leather loop would have been ideal. In general, the elastic loop collapses. Inserting and removing requires two hands, and attention. For a notepad, storing the writing utensil should be effortless and efficient! That slight design modification would perfect this product.

Exceptional Quality Product

Just received this padfolio. The quality is second to none and feels and smells great, everything is right on.
This is the second padfolio I purchased from OLPR. I can't imagine buying from anyone else.

Thank you, customer for life!
