Leather Wine Totes

Custom leather photo albums, guest books, and portfolios aren’t all we make at Powell Leather. The PortAmore’ Wine Tote is the ultimate accessory for the wine enthusiast who enjoys a favorite vintage on the go. Our handmade leather wine totes are crafted in the same traditon as all Powell Leather products. We only use the best materials available to create a leather wine holder that is as durable as it is beautiful. Its two tubes accommodate a bottle of wine, a corkscrew, and two beautiful wine glasses which are included. The wine glasses may be removed from the lower tube in order to stow a second bottle if you like, in which case cocktail glasses may be stowed over the tops of the bottles. The tote is constructed from handsome European  Shoulder Leather, and the interior is lined with 1/2? wetsuit neoprene material, which insulates up to 4 hours and offers shock protection for your precious cargo. The tubes have a soft leather closure which draws closed easily and securely. The PortAmore’ Leather Wine Tote is designed to give a lifetime of satisfying outings!

Portfolio Photo Album

We’d like to introduce the newest member of the Powell Leather product family, the Professional Presentation Portfolio. Many people have chosen Powell Leather photo albums to showcase their products and services because of the general durability and resistance to wear that they offer, and now we’ve taken it a step further. We now offer a leather portfolio which accommodates 8.5 x 11 page sleeves that includes a document flap with business card pockets. Images of products or services may be displayed elegantly in the page sleeves, which easily accommodate anything less than 8.5 x 11 in dimension. Contracts, sales material, and business cards are easily stowed in the document flap. Our portfolios have been very well recieved by several service companies, professional photographers, and salesmen as a useful sales tool to showcase their goods and services. Please feel free to inquire as to how we might adapt one for your purpose, or offer some suggestions concerning how the product might be improved. Custom made photo albums are our specialty.

Leather Guest Register

Leather Guest Register

How do you say “Thank you!” for a $1 billion donation to your cause? When the United Nations Foundation wanted to thank Ted Turner for his, they chose an adapted Powell Leather  Photo Album within which they presented letters of thanks to him from their members. They purchased a Cognac Shoulder Leather Large Album, and their artwork was hand cut into its cover. Its black

inserts were used as mats upon which the letters were mounted. The album was given to him on his 70th birthday. We not only make the best handmade leather books, we make the best birthday books too.

Large Leather Guest Book

Large Leather Guest Book

If you’re looking for an impressive guest book that will remain to be so for the long run, our large leather guest books are the right choice. The large guest book is a great choice for a long term sevice book for many reasons.  Most obviously, our books may be personalized throughout. The cover leather can be inlayed with your logo, family name, or whatever you like. We don’t have font and scale limitations as are found in foil stamping, embossing, and engraving because your art is hand cut to your specifications, and glazed calf leather is stitched beneath it to create the art.

Our custom guest book pages may also be personalized however you like. After gathering information regarding your purpose for the book, what information you would like to collect from your guests, and what art you would like to appear at the head of the page or in the background of the lines, our graphic designer will create a page layout for you. Upon your approval of the layout we will print your pages, and, of course, we will be happy to provide refill pages for you as needed.

Our books are composed of the best materials available from the cover leather all the way to the book’s core materials. Our goal is to produce for you the highest quality product possible. Many of the best clubs, resorts, hotels, bed and breakfasts, companies, and universities use Powell Leather guest books. They may also be found in private cabins, ranches, lakehouses, ski get-aways, beach houses, and churches around the country. Please consider one of our books for whatever your need may be.
