Ettinger Releases Heritage Collection Briefcases and Classic Attaché Case in Stunning New Leather

Hand-crafted using an exquisitely soft, full-grain matt leather called 'Buttero', it is a naturally tanned leather made using vegetable tanning and is much more resilient than the previously used Bridle Hide. Vegetable tanning is a highly regarded process in the leather industry where skilled artisans use natural substances to transform raw hides into leather. The long, slow traditional techniques used to process the hides allows the leather to develop a beautiful patina as they age adding to the unique character of every piece.


Buttero also comes in beautifully rich colour tones and three have been chosen to feature in these cases - black, hazelnut and nut. The leather ages beautifully and over time creates a glorious patina for current and future generations to enjoy.


The new leather enhances these classic Ettinger designs of which contemporary detailing and modern functionality is essential for today's customers.


This hand-made classic attaché is smaller and lighter than a traditional attaché. Company founder, Gerry Ettinger, found the traditional attaché case too bulky and heavy and so decided to create his own version that was easier and lighter to carry around on his business travels and is the perfect size to fit documents, notebooks, a laptop, and other work essentials.


The St. James features special stitching using two needles and Ettinger is one of the last remaining UK manufacturers to continue to use this traditional method which has been used for over a hundred years. All the fittings on the attaché are also handmade in brass and come from a factory very close to the Ettinger factory and both factories have been in continual use for over 100 years. The inside has a neutral-toned suede and the attaché comes with a complimentary visiting card case.


This handcrafted briefcase design offers ample space to house your daily work essentials. Featuring two large compartments, a strong and sturdy frame, it can be carried by the top hand-stitched handle or with the detachable shoulder strap for ultimate versatility. Sized to comfortably accommodate a laptop, notebook, or iPad with internal slots to keep your cards, pens, and small gadgets in order. Inside is a neutral-toned suede.


Sleek and sophisticated, the Burlington briefcase has a lightweight, streamlined shape with one gusset large enough to hold a laptop, paperwork, and other daily essentials. It is lined inside with soft suede and a brass lock keeps the briefcase secure. There is an internal and external A4-sized pocket slip lined with signature gold Ettinger-monogrammed jacquard fabric - the monogram graphically represents founder, Gerry Ettinger's initials, GSE.
