While modern materials come with their own advantages, there is something intrinsically beautiful about leather. Like marble or wood grain, tanned hide has a unique character. It also happens to be very durable, lasting for decades without wearing thin. These qualities make leather the perfect material for shoes, belts and bags. The Port Series leather portfolios offer a new twist on the traditional, with an inner pocket for your laptop. In addition, these stylish bags have a built-in charging system and modular storage space.

– 5 different sizes of bag to suit tablets and laptops

– Modular inserts to meet your needs, with integrated USB charging system

– Made from full-grain Italian vegetable-tanned leather

Leather Portfolios

At times, our obsession with newness can obscure the effectiveness of tried and tested designs. Likewise, man-made materials are not necessarily superior to nature’s own creations. Leather is one organic material that has more than proven its worth. The very fact that your parents’ musty briefcases are gathering dust in the attic proves how long tanned hide can last.

The Port Series portfolio cases combine beautiful Italian leather with a selection of modern design choices. The bags range from compact tablet cases to 15-inch laptop carriers. Furthermore, you can adjust the inside pocket to suit your needs, while the outside can hold a USB power bank.

Perfect for business commuters and creative freelancers alike, this series breathes new life into timeless style.

Port Series

The Port Tablet case is the baby of the family. Along with the dedicated sleeve for your touchscreen device, it holds your phone and a backup battery.  Meanwhile, small leather loops provide a safe spot for cables and pens. The whole thing is secured by a Japanese YKK Excella wraparound zipper — one of the smoothest around.

The Port 11”, Port 13”, Port 14”, and Port 15” offer similar setups for laptops, albeit with some extra room. The increased footprint allows you to store a small e-reader or tablet. You can also slip in a few credit cards and take your laptop charger.

Each bag has a sturdy carry handle and an adjustable shoulder strap. The D-rings and clasps are made from solid brass, and the leather is punctuated by beautiful stitching details. Even here, the waxed polyester 277 thread has been chosen for its durability. You can understand why Satchel & Page, who make these cases, can provide a lifetime guarantee.

Modular Magnificence

For all their beauty, the Port Series cases are still very practical. The modular storage system allows you to create the perfect setup. You can choose from two different inserts, which fit in your case like pages inside a book. The Venture insert is good for holding documents, notebooks and magazines. In addition, it can take credit cards and a spare cable or two.

In contrast, the Artist insert allows folks with the creative touch to carry pens, pencils and paper. It means you always have the opportunity to sketch an idea.

Finally, all the bags offer on-the-go charging. The optional battery pack has two USB ports and a capacity of 5,000mAh. Inside the case, dedicated loops direct the charging cables in the right direction.

“For this campaign, we’re unveiling our new Tuscan leather. Our new leather partner is a 3rd generation, family vegetable tannery in Ponte a Egola, Italy. They are one of the founding members of The Genuine Italian Vegetable Tanned Leather Consortium, a group of Tuscan vegetable tanneries which follow strict regulations and have extremely high standards.” — Satchel & Page on Kickstarter
