Sealed veg tan leather Klein Tools workman’s portfolio, upcycled into a reporter’s field kit. Klein Tools was established in 1857. This heavy-duty #4271 portfolio has a worker’s name written behind the document slot in Sharpie; it’s used and bears the scars of honest work. I don’t find this particular model on the Klein site anymore and do not know its age. I acquired it as a donation. It comes with a brand-new Portage professional reporter’s notebook, on which I’ve trimmed the backing cardboard just slightly to fit it in the existing pad slot. Because the portfolio had holes top and bottom, I stabilized them with eyelets and added FIMO sugar skull charms that I purchased in 2009 from a SmallWildShop (no longer on Etsy). I added a leather tab and floral heart bag clasp to secure it closed. A pen fits nicely in the loop that creates.

I received my wallet purse today and it's absolutely beautiful! It will match everything in my wardrobe from casual to formal attire. I can't wait to fill it up and take it out. Heather really put a lot of care and love into this purse, and even made me a really great adjustable strap to go with it! Saxifrage Leather is truly a great store with wonderful leather goods.

This is absolutely perfect. It has a tremendous personal significance for me, as Mary Wollstonecraft is someone I admire...And it is strikingly beautiful. I was recently shopping w. my teen daughter in Urban Outfitters (cool, hip store) and 2 of the staff asked me where I got it -- and I let them know. Very very grateful for the art, originality and politics of it, and impressed with the craftsmanship! Thank you!

Heather made this beautiful leather band. I use it for my iPod Nano 6th generation and have received lots of compliments about it.
