Practical and well-made
This fine leather rope reminds me of the heavy duty red paper ones we used to use in my law office. Now we are reduced to thin paper manila folders. These fit beautifully into this leather rope, and keep my desk looking clean, elegant, well-ordered and professional. I own the legal size one as well, and have given them as gifts. They are always well-received because they are so well-made!

Bought my 2nd one
I love this so much that I've now purchased by second one. The first one stays in my traveling bag to organize my work on the road. This new one will be used to organize my files for meetings and do the local work of making me look extremely professional! Thanks.

Leather Rope - Letter
Keeps everything organized on my desk and in my briefcase. Best of all it looks professional. Wish I could have found this a long time ago!

WONDERFUL LEATHER FILE
I LOVE the feel and functionality of this leather file and anticipate that it will be a part of my office for years to come. It's compact and expandable and is just the right size to keep my temporary files in.

I was hesitant
I use red rope files at work all the time and usually have one that contains all my current projects. So I thought that this would be nice, but I could buy a lot of paper ones for $100+, just couldn't bring myself to do it. Then I had a gift certificate and didn't really need anything and I thought why not.
I now don't know why I hesitated. This is absolutely the best file you can have for organizing. It looks great and works great.
Don't hesitate.....you know you want one!

Good Looking and Functional
Became so tired of wearing out cardboard expandable files. This is a perfect recreation of the tried and true office product-comfortably accepts letter size manilla files. Great quality leather, added front pocket a plus. Had mine monogrammed. Only draw back was the S&H charge, which I thought a bit excessive, therefore the 3 star rating on Value.

For every attorney with any volume practice
Its great for keeping your files together through the court security machine. It stands on its own which is very handy for finding files and preparing for big dockets.

Bought this for myself after going through cheap accordion ones over the year. Love the quality of Levenger and it goes with the rest of my black leather desk accessories from here.

Quality leather but a bit tight
The Leather-Rope shouts quality right out of the box. It is exactly as shown on the screen and the catalogue. Regular letter size manilla file folders are the right length for the folio. Unfortunately the leather-rope is a bit short in height for the normal folders we all use and hence the tabs stick up about 1/2" above the leather. If the leather-rope is very full and the accordion bottom is fully extended, the folders then fit perfectly. If it is only an inch or two full, however, the folders stick above the leather as the accordion structure folds inside raising the bottom. As a result the file folder taps get quickly damaged in carrying the leather-rope if it is not full. I am sure Levenger did not intend the following use, but this Leather-rope works perfectly with European A4 paper which is slightly narrower than US letter yet still fits in lengthwise despite being a little longer. SO my advice is use it without file folders if you only have an inch of paper, OK with file folders if fully extended or perfect for European A4.
