DEER RIVER FOLIO CO. was the brainchild of an Illinois musician who conceptualized the “Cadillac of Folios” and began manufacturing in his garage. In the beginning, the product was simple but made for the performer. As demand for folios grew and new designs were requested, his garage facility became obsolete and he opted to move his business to the northern Minnesota city of Deer River. Thus, the name “DEER RIVER FOLIO” was born.

In 1979 the present owners purchased the company and ushered in years of expansion of product lines, new materials and international marketing.

Our folios continue to be the finest in the world. The folios, as well as materials are manufactured in the USA and quality second to none is our constant goal. Because we are concerned with environmental issues, we utilize no vinyl or plastic in our products.
