Wine Totes!

Posted by Steve powell on Fri, Oct 15, 2010
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 tradition as all Powell Leather products. We only use the best materials available to create a leather wine carrier 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! Please be sure to visit our website and browse our selection of leather albums, leather portfolios, leather photo envelopes, leather guest books, leather letter pad portfolios, and other great Powell Products.

Embossed and Engraved Photo Albums and Guest Books?

Posted by Steve powell on Wed, Sep 22, 2010
embossed engraved photo albums and guest booksThere's nothing like a personalized leather photo album or leather guest book to record your memories of the special events and people in your life. We are often contacted by people seeking embossed photo albums, engraved guest books, and the like, but what we do here is a much better alternative. We use a method called "leather inlay" at Powell Leather. We begin the process by discussing what it is that you'd like to ultimately achieve with your book. We will create Photoshop mock ups of your art for your approval. Once you have approved a design we will carefully hand cut the design from the leather which will cover your book, and stitch the appropriate colors of glazed calf leather behind to create your particular design. Please feel free to browse our website to view examples of custom leather photo albums, and custom leather guest books. If you don't find what your looking for please don't hesitate to call to discuss what it is that you want. Our products are custom crafted on a per customer basis.

Personalized leather photo albumsIf you've ever searched for leather photo albums, or leather photo portfolios for a specific project, you're probably aware of how difficult it can be to find just the right style. Theme photo albums are usually very generic, and the quality is generally low. If you need something special for a family photo album, professional photo album, hunting or safari album, vacation album, or a very clean professional photography portfolio, we can build you exactly what you are seeking. Custom and personalized leather photo albums are our specialty. Please feel free to contact us to discuss your particular needs, and we will build you an album to accommodate them.
