Leather Quality: Top 1%
This item is nearly identical to the current model, but with dyed edges instead of edge painted edges. It will look just like the pictures. To see the full description of this product and all regular photos, click here.
Our full grain vegetable tanned leather is rich in character and the surface is natural, not sanded or altered. This means you may see naturally occurring small scars, creases, and striations. These minor markings are not flaws - they are features and a hallmark of quality leather.
The leather also has natural color variation. No two hides are identical. So you may notice some color variation even among products that are the same color.
Like a fine wine, our leather gets even better as it ages, developing a rich patina. The leather is very durable but proper care and maintenance is recommended. We offer a specially formulated all-natural leather cream that works wonderfully with our leather.
We use 100% vegetable tanned full grain leather made from strong American steer hides - the best you can get. Learn how our products are made.
We use solid brass hardware with antique finish. A premium old-school rarity not used by most bag makers.
We use heavy gauge bonded thread to make our leather goods. It may be overkill, but that's what we do.
When I first saw the 1930's attache that inspired me, I couldn't believe how well it had held together. The veg tan leather had definitely aged, but still held its shape and character.
It reminded me of a simpler time and I figured there must be a way to adapt it for modern use.
Falling somewhere between a laptop sleeve and slim briefcase, with an extra dose of nostalgia, the Attache was born.
