Franklin was a successful inventor, writer, publisher, diplomat, drafter/signer of our Declaration of Independence, abolitionist, entrepreneur, and networker. Another true Renaissance man and Mission Man.
Our Benjamin Collection is an intentional nod (and wink!) to good ole Ben, who would have felt right at home grabbing his namesake collection as his EDC (everyday carry for your Benjamins). In fact, social critic David Brook called Franklin our founding Yuppie. Intentionality was our emphasis, from the hand-selected, marbled, twice-tanned leather (both chrome and vegetable tanning) to the rich yet simplistic lines visible in each Benjamin leather good. We can imagine Mr. Franklin proudly carrying his collection on the streets of Philadelphia, Paris, or anywhere in the world his business or exploits might take him.
Where will your adventures take you with the Benjamin by your side?
From time to time, even the most tech-engaged among us still value the analog sensation of putting pen to paper. For some, it is a daily practice. Screens of endless links, banners, and other blinking seductions are Grand Central Station at rush hour. The blank page, by comparison, is a zen garden where clear thought and fresh inspiration can bloom. For that, we've built a temple - a simple, stately full-grain leather folio that keeps a standard letter-size notepad, other documents or files, and a pen close at hand. Lined with pigskin suede, our padfolio features an inventive leather flap that snaps into place, securing the notepad at the top. Simple. Refined. Classic.
We honeymooned in Fredericksburg, TX last week and happened into a shop carrying MM goods, which was a delightful surprise! Earlier in our trip, I'd purchased this amazing notepad from another local shop that fits perfectly into this folio, and am really enjoying the pairing. The smell is amazing, I walked through the downtown area with this against my nose, and it's smelling the same delicious leather smell still, beside me on my desk this morning. Very well made, highly recommend.
I got my husband this padfolio last year for Christmas, he uses it everyday and it is still in great shape! He loves the quality/craftsmanship and gets questions/compliments about it often.
My husband lives out of his padfolio so he loved this gift. Great quality and beautiful leather.
