This sleek crisp black briefcase is the ultimate traditional business bag. The Westminster Flap-Over exterior is made using the finest traditional English bridle leather and the interior features soft pig suede in neutral colour to match exterior. The briefcase is very sturdy, yet elegantly proportioned, acquiring a beautiful patina over the years by becoming shinier and smoother. The hand-stitched handle provides a supple grip, whilst the removable shoulder strap makes it easier to carry the bag. The brass lock provides security for your contents within. Two large compartments inside are perfect for your papers, notebooks, a smaller laptop or an iPad.

Please note that a natural white bloom may appear on the bridle leather, this will disappear with a light polish using a soft cloth. The briefcase will come with a complimentary Ettinger Leather Wax to ensure the best care and we strongly recommend reading the leather care instructions prior to cleaning the briefcase. 

Make the briefcase special by adding your initials on it just above the brass lock!

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.

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.
