This item is NOT 100% leather. There is a nylon type lining that is not disclosed in the description. Descriptive!
BOSCA response: Your disappointment takes us by surprise. In the 25+ years that we have offered this piece this is the first time that we have received this complaint, so I had to actually go get a piece to remind myself of the design.
Technically, you are correct- Under the pockets we use a moire poly/nylon lining. The purpose here is to prevent a bulky build-up thickness.
We stand by our design as appropriate, but we are revising the copy in the product description. No one here is trying to deceive anyone, and you are welcome to return you purchase if you wish.
Should you choose to keep the piece I predict that you will have many many years of use, and will come to love the piece.
One of my favorite purchases ever
I splurged and bought this for myself when I was sixteen. I have used it nearly every day since for the past 30 years—through college, grad school, during my career as a journalist and when I switched careers into marketing. It only looks better as it has absorbed oils from my hands and been nicked and scratched along the way. My son recently graduated from high school and I bought him an identical one for his journey out into the real world.
BOSCA response: Holy Mackerel. That is a lot of use. We try to make them last a long time, but that one surprises even us. We are very happy that you have had such a great experience. More than anything, thank you for passing the tradition on to your son. We plan to be here for another 100+ years, so he will know where to find us!
Really wonderful product I've used for YEARS!
I bought this product in 2000 in the Cognac color and still have it! Admittedly, there were 10 years where it sat in the original box because my job didn't really lend itself to such a nice product.
But I've been in high end retail sales for the past 3+ years and when my clients and coworkers see it on my desk, I get compliments. For me, having the pen holder and the double document holder on the left hand side are very helpful. I literally use it daily now.
It's time for a different color, however, so today I'm ordering the same product in Brown. I can't wait!
I purchased an earlier version of this portfolio back in 1995, I still use it to this day and it still looks good. My version had a zipper that allowed it to be closed which I appreciate. I wish they would bring that feature back. I purchased another one of these as a gift for my nephew’s college graduation. Great product that will serve you for decades.
A great leather folio.
Craftsmanship is exceptional and the leather quality is very with a rich luster finish.
A Wonderful Indulgence
To celebrate our 35th anniversary, I bought my beloved bride a super-light all-metal 14" Windows 10 laptop (new but advertised as a "refurbished" Asus Swift 1), and added a 250 GB SSD with the help of online instructions, all for around $310 total, including the cost of a specialized toolkit I needed to open the back of the laptop to install the SSD. Best deal ever for an easy-to-grab, durable, do-everything computer to keep beside her easy chair, and it weighs only four pounds. She can do research, get directions, view beautiful 1080p photos, read and write emails, and do 99% of what she needs to without having to twist around and wrestle with her almost ten-pound 17-inch HP laptop. She loves it!
On the other hand, I hoped for something more "analog," as I'm learning to read and write the classical Greek alphabet, and I constantly need to take down notes, numbers, drawings and details that just don't "work" on a computer. Of course I could use any scrap of paper, but I wanted my notes and mechanical pencil to be protected, private, and wrapped in luxury. I wanted something I could carry into a meeting that says, "I'm here, I'm listening, and I'm serious about what I write down." I scanned through dozens of "leather" portfolios online, but only Bosca offers the absolute pride of craftsmanship and detail that I truly wanted. So my wife got me this Portfolio in the cognac color, and I use it every day. It's a tactile gift of the highest quality, obviously made to last many years. I love it!
We both spent about the same amount of money on each other, but I think I got the better deal. Long after Windows 10 is obsolete, I'll still be writing in my Bosca Old Leather Deluxe Leather Portfolio. Life is too short to buy second-rate accessories. Treat yourself to the best.
Well worth the price
One of those things that make you happy every time you use it (or even look at it). It is substantially more solid and well-crafted than any other similar item I’ve owned over the years. Agree that this will end up being an heirloom for my kids, which is a crazy thing to say about a stationary item, but trust me, as soon as you see it and pick it up you’ll believe it.
Ordered the Cognac Deluxe Leather Portfolio and it arrived much faster than what I was told! It is beautiful and the leather and stitching is superb. I could not have asked for a better portfolio and I love how it is vegetable tanned leather. No chemicals! Thanks, Bosca!
Excellent quality. Monogram was just right size and placement. Delivered faster than I expected. Very well wrapped. I couldn't be happier.
I still use my dad's 30 year old Bosca padfolio every day...
After my father passed away, I inherited his Bosca padfolio that he received as a gift in 1988. I smile every day I see his gold initials embossed on the front... It looks and works perfectly. Clearly a high quality item built to last. Great product.
