These expanding files are known in France as chemises dos and are used everywhere from classrooms to the law courts but rarely seen here. They work best when used with up to 50 sheets but can be expanded up to 12cm and hold 1,000 sheets of paper. The covering is paper and they are held together with a matching strap with a buckle. These were one of the first products stocked in the Bureau store back in 1997 but they didn't make it on to the website, until now.

Total 2 question(s)
Do these have flaps on the inside to hold papers in place please?
Bureau replies: there are no flaps. Two sides are joined at one side which can extend to hold more papers. The order side is tied by the buckle...
Can you post some photos showing the files in use? They look great, stylish and sturdy, but how are the papers secured within the folder? With the tape is tightened, it seems that pages could still slip out?
Bureau replies... may I suggest you have a look at our review on our blog? It features screen grabs from the TV series Spiral showing the files in action. I should qualify that by saying that French judges would appear to be very untidy and the files can look much smarter than they do here. I think they are being used to hold around 500 sheets of paper which is how we use them here at Bureau but if you carry around 50 or so sheets they look far more chic. The buckle strap does a good job of keeping the file tightly bound in the centre and the papers don't fall out in my experience. The link is below for you
