Any of the Made To Oder briefcase styles can be slightly changed


We’ve been making leather briefcases and bags for many years, hundreds of different variations, so we know what works and what doesn’t work at this point.  The styles you see on our website have evolved from real world trial and error.  We  use old world techniques like hand saddle stitching to make sure corners and gussets are the strongest can be and superior quality thick leather that lasts and works in a professional environment.  The briefcases are backed by a lifetime warranty so they are built to last and therefore you will not normally see them with with zippers, fake buckles, cheap locks and shapes that have not been around for decades.

If you have an idea of a briefcase or handbag and would like to work with us to make it come to life we prefer you begin with one of our standard styles and tweak that to suit your needs.

Made To Order (MTO) Existing Styles

Have a 2 to 12 week production time.  These items are all custom made to order and leather is ordered from our tanneries when your order is placed.  The process is as follows:

  1. Choose a style (briefcase, Bag or leathercraft Item), Add it the Cart and Checkout
  2. Make a note during checkout for any minor special requirements
  3. You receive an email to confirm the order is placed
  4. We place the order for a fresh leather hide from the tannery unless we have it in stock.  Most English bridle leather is ordered individually.  The UK bridle leather could take longer to get due to availability and import times.
  5. If it falls out of the 2 to 12 week production time we will email.  You can always check for an update
  6. When the item is ready to ship you will receive a tracking number
  7. We can only ship to a home or office address added in the beginning of the order.  All other types of addresses like a hotel will have to be paid by Bank Wire Transfer
  8. The item ships with full insurance and will need a signature upon arrival
  9. You enjoy it
