DISCOUNTED Jr. Legal Padfolio, Lefty model, brown/chesnut


DISCOUNT REASON: The sizing is slightly off, it was made 1.5cm too tall. Still works great. Also, embossed with "BMM". Regular price $260.

This is a genuine 100% handmade-in-the-USA product. No sewing machines, no assembly lines. Just top quality raw materials put together by hand. To learn more, check out Etsy's feature of my shop: And read more about my philosophy at


This folio fits 5" x 8" junior size notepads. It comes loaded with a simple lined notepad, but I highly recommend Doane Paper's graph+lines version of this size pad, seen in these photos. There are lots of pockets on the left - the two on the top and bottom are sized specifically for credit and business cards, the middle on in that tier fits 3x5 notecards. The next tier has two equal size pockets that perfectly fit 3.5x5.5" notebooks like those from Field Notes, Moleskine, DoanePaper, Word and many others. One more full size pocket can handle larger items. You can also use the space behind the notebook on the right side as another pocket. You can stuff this thing full of goodies if you like.

I also make this in A5 size to fit the Rhodia no16 and other 5.8"x8.3" pads. See my other listings for that version.


This model comes with a lined notepad but does NOT come with a pen. The pen loop will fit many pens up to about 1.4cm in diameter (Karas Kustoms INK, seen here, Lamy 2000, Pelican M1000). Smaller pens work just as well in this pen loop.

This folio will ride comfortably in a bag or purse and makes an elegant and excellent organizational accessory.


Please contact me to discuss color options before you purchase.


The exterior leather is soft and waxy (and smells heavenly), from the Horween Tannery in Chicago. The interior pieces are built from bridle leather from the Hermann Oak Tannery in St. Louis. This piece will age and patina beautifully and will last for decades.

I make these to order. Contact me before purchase so we can discuss color options.
