A new slimline Heritage Burlington Briefcase, a Capra Slim Card Case, and a new Capra Washbag - the first washbag in a long while. 

Leading British leather accessories brand, Ettinger, is delighted to announce the launch of a new slimline briefcase* in the Heritage Collection called the Burlington Briefcase. The new briefcase provides a more slimline and lightweight alternative to the Ettinger Westminster Briefcase (also in the Heritage Collection) having only one gusset - as opposed to a double one - but is still big enough to hold a slimline laptop, papers and other accessories for day-to-day business. Made from traditional bridle leather on the outside and lined with suede on the inside, the briefcase features one large compartment and an A4-sized pocket slip for papers inside. A brass lock keeps the briefcase secure on the front and on the back, there is another A4-sized pocket slip lined with gold Ettinger-monogrammed jacquard fabric. The new briefcase comes in a choice of four colours - black, hazelnut, nut and the iconic Ettinger London Tan – and retails at £1,150

Another new slimline addition is the Ettinger Slim Card Case which is launched in Ettinger's goat leather Capra Collection. Inside the case there are six vertical card slots and two side slip pockets, all with Ettinger's grey monogrammed jacquard lining. The Slim Card Case features the Ettinger logo and the royal warrant emboss in silver. The new card case is available in three colours - marine blue, tan and black - and retails at £135

Capra Collection Slim Card Case

Also being launched in the Capra Collection is the new Ettinger Washbag - the first the brand has launched in a long while and comes in response to customer requests. The washbag is made using goat leather on the outside and grey Ettinger-monogrammed jacquard lining on the inside. The washbag is a convenient size for holding all essential toiletries for men or women when travelling and has a handle for ease of carrying. The lining inside is easily wiped down and the goat leather outside has innate water resistance. Available in marine blue, black and tan, it retails at £295

Commented Robert Ettinger, CEO, "Having road tested samples of these new items on my extensive business travels last autumn, I know they all work beautifully and will be great additions to our portfolio. Hand-in-hand with my designers and craftspeople, we are constantly reviewing the products we make to ensure that they fit in with the changing requirements of our increasingly cash-less, technology-focused, low maintenance and fast-moving lifestyles."
