When your things are in disarray, so is your mind. The Work Folio keeps your notebooks, papers, cards, pens, devices, cables and more, in one premium leather compendium. So you remain composed and in control.

As technology has become more mobile, so too has the concept of the office. Nowadays professionals regularly take their work lives out and about, and need a solution to keep everything organised. Finding the ideal product for the job can be tricky. Sometimes a backpack is too much, and a laptop sleeve is too little. You need something that will have you prepared for a variety of situations; keep your belongings safe and sound; and is light and portable enough to carry to and from meetings. Bellroy has been providing clutter reducing products for some time now, and we swear by them. Their Work Folio might be the perfect solution for mobile professionals.

Regardless of whether you select Black, Caramel or Navy, the Work Folio is made from Bellroy’s environmentally sourced leathers that will each age differently and gracefully. The leathers Bellroy use are premium hides tanned under gold-rated Leather Working Group environmental protocols, then dyed through so they age gracefully. The woven fabrics used are sustainably produced and chosen for their durability and lightweight performance. The leather is also water resistant so your possessions within will stay dry in light rain; just don’t expect it to be the same if you get caught in a downpour. The outer leather is free from extravagant design elements, with only a small Bellroy logo embossed on the front, and is complemented by colour matched stitching and a matching leather tab on the heavy-grade zipper.

It’s hard to get an idea of just how much you can fit inside the Work Folio from photos but its versatility is part of its genius. Bellroy has designed the Work Folio with versatility in mind so you can organise it in a number of ways. The inner leather of the Work Folio is accompanied by some durable woven black elastics that are built to withstand the frequent tugging of frantic hands. The zip closure creates a forgiving format that allows you to carry more without compromising the sense of composure. Just zip it up to hide the life that’s on the inside.

When we need to hand-write some notes at a meeting, the right-hand side can hold an A4 size notepad, while the sleeve below can hold a tablet if we want to go paperless. If we want flexibility, the Work Folio has us covered, and is able to fit both inside and still zip it shut comfortably. On the left side of the folio, there is a leather utility holder that we’ve found is perfect for storing the pieces of loose paper that we collect throughout the day. Pull back the creased leather cover to find three elastic pockets that are ideal for phones and chargers; and three card holders. We use one card holder to store all our business cards while the other two come in handy for our credit card and the collection of loyalty cards we’ve built up from the various coffee shops we frequent.

The Work Folio is the perfect encapsulation of a product that showcases Bellroy’s ethos of combining functionality and considered design. Its well thought out compartments mean it can carry more than most folios but it still remains compact enough to fit in a backpack or suitcase. For a professional who is constantly on the move, the Bellroy Work Folio is the ideal companion.

Customer Reviews

  • “Great for daily meetings. The compendium is great quality. It looks great and is super functional. Carries my macbook, papers and phone etc for meetings with ease.”
    Margaret from Malmsbury, VIC, Australia
  • “Worth the money . How do bellroy do it - this fits the stupid amount of the work gear that is now required in this model world. Yeah - a phone and a battery charger and a notebook (digital) and notebook (paper) and yet when it all zips up, it is still sleek and compact. Could do with a second pen holder but hey - working hard to find a negative here. Expensive - sure but quality everything. An investment in you.”
