The Saddler's Briefcase in Cocoa Leather


The Briefcase will become one of your iconic pieces, transcending the journey of work and corporate needs.

We are pleased to present a new Heirloom Edition to our range, The Saddler’s Briefcase. From the city boardroom to country plains, this piece is made for traversing further afield.

The leather Briefcase will become a familiar companion, melding to the nature of life travels and flying trips. This is a premium, full grain leather bag designed to hang by your side or carried handheld with ease.

The Saddler‘s Briefcase is a piece that stands out. So named because of the style of briefcase made traditionally by those of the Saddler’s trade. The craftsman's knowledge is essential to the end result. There is a balance between rugged construction and refined simplicity in this design, with all the leather sides and panels having been doubled and reinforced. Solid brass Saddler‘s “rivet and burr” rivet hardware feature as the failsafe, as these will never wear or break.

Adorned with low-set “whole” rectangle brass buckles, the classic front face of the bag has such comeliness that it catches one’s eye on the street. The box-like form of the Briefcase has a beauty and structural appeal which guarantees the owner will always look sharp and at their finest.

The material has already developed a character all of its own. It comes with its own story, ready to join you, every step of the way.
