Like the goat leather which comes from a tannery in South West France, the new colour takes its name from the eponymous South West France wine-growing region and offers customers a purple-red which is quite different to the Ettinger purple.
Ettinger zip boxes and glasses case in Bordeaux have been decorated with sunglasses by Banton Frameworks and jewellery by Kiki McDonough.
The three new accessories include a compact three-fold mini wallet, a stylish visiting card case with tab fastener and a beautiful silver-edged journal. The new journal further enhances the existing stationery offering and the new purses are a nod to the changing use of wallets and purses as customers continue to use cards in preference to cash. The new items expand the collection to thirty-four products, and all are now available in the new Bordeaux colour alongside Forest Green, Tan, Marine Blue and Black.

The Capra Collection was inspired by the 1930s - the Golden Age of Travel - when Ettinger crafted many travel accessories from the refined goat leather popular at the time. The collection combines the best of Ettinger's heritage and tradition with modern designs, practicality, and an appreciation of contemporary use. It is also the third largest Ettinger Collection after the best-selling Bridle Hide and ever-popular Sterling Collections.
