DESCRIPTION

The St James Flap-Over Attaché Case with an iPad Pocket is based on Gerry's original piece and is smaller and slimmer than the traditional attachés. Whilst having stayed true to our traditional framework, we have added an additional feature - an iPad pocket to this version. Your iPad or tablet can easily be stored away in the leather pocket and kept safely in one place by using the switch fastening, stopping pens and smaller folders from scratching the device. 

This is the attaché case for those who appreciate traditional craftsmanship and business style but with a modern twist, preferring outstanding colours. Our attaché cases are handmade in England, using traditional English bridle hide exterior and a variety of three colours of long grain skiver (red, blue, green) or a natural suede. We use only the very best brass locks and fittings to ensure that every part lasts as long as the leather. 

This case is made-to-order especially for you. The unique craftsmanship required to make it means that we can only make a few at a time, so please allow around 10 weeks for delivery. Because this attaché case is made-to-order, please do ask about any additional details you may wish to have such as initials or feet.

LEATHER AND MATERIALS

Traditional English Bridle Hide

The most English of all leathers, traditional bridle hide is made using a lengthy and natural process involving centuries old tanning pits and painstaking hand-finishing. It is only in this way that we can achieve the thickness, durability and especially the distinctive look and feel of this traditional equestrian leather.


Skiver

Skiver is a term commonly used to describe a dressed goat or sheep skin with a patterned embossing. Traditionally it is used as a lining and for book binding because it is very thin, supple and can have many effects applied onto it. We have ours glazed and embossed with a cross grain (also called paste grain) pattern and use this to line our attaché cases.

Natural Pig Suede

Pig suede has a silky touch and is instantly recognisable thanks to the little dots caused by the pig’s follicles. Pig skin is naturally thin and supple but this is enhanced further by several mechanical processes to massage and soften up the leather, once the skins have been chrome tanned and dyed through.
Suede is in fact the flesh side of the skin, which has been finely trimmed and brushed. It is a beautiful leather for lining fine leather accessories and bags.
