This was recently purchased as a gift for a physician. She told us that she loves it but does not use it as a file folder. Rather, she said she prefers to use it for her iPad. She said it fits perfectly into the sleeve and fits nicely in her purse.

Excellent, Attractive Product
The Large Folio holds all of my graded work for three classes as well as assignments in progress without looking overstuffed. It is much nicer to look at and will last much longer than folders available at big box office supply stores. I love that it is slim enough to fit into all of the VB styles that I use for school without taking up too much space. The Large Folio is an excellent value for the price, and I hope that it will be released in other patterns as well.

I bought this to organize my wedding stuff. I had pictures, contracts, business cards, notes, things were starting to pile up! I wanted something nicer than a 3-ring binder, and a simple notebook wasn't cutting it.
The large folio has enough room to keep my papers organized. It's pretty, durable, and it has more room than I thought it would. It looks very professional too. I have the DJ, Photographer, Reception Hall, pictures of dresses and flowers separated and easily accessible. The papers slip in and out of the pockets easier than I thought they would.
I do wish the Vera Bradley 8x11" notebook fit in the folio. I was a little bummed the notebook fits, but the folio couldn't close. And, the papers in the front pocket can get folded down from the folio closing. Those would be my only two little complaints. But overall this is great. Perfect for my wedding stuff, and, whatever comes after. ;)

I have several friends throughout the country, and over the last five years, they've sent me a lot of letters and cards and pictures. I'm a very nostalgic person, so I never throw these things away, but I didn't really have anywhere to keep it sorted and organized. It all ended up in a pile in a drawer in my room. Then, I saw the large folio and thought it would be perfect - and it is! I wanted something cloth to store these things in, and this is exactly what I wanted. I have one pocket assigned to each of my friends (one of them actually got two pockets because she's sent me so many letters).
If I was going to make one recommendation for Vera to improve upon this item, it would be to make it expandable while still keeping it cloth. I worry I might stretch out the stitches after a while since I DO have so many letters and cards from individuals, but if it was expandable, that wouldn't be an issue.

Beautiful File Folder
I purchased the Large Folio in Island Blooms. It has four slip pockets that hold 8 8 1/2 x 11 1/2 paper. It also comes with labels In the past I've kept papers I brought from work to home in either a paper or plastic folder. The paper folder always ends up ripped and the plastic cracks over time. This is stylish and protects my papers.
