Leather Briefcases

*Please Note*

I am no longer taking any custom leather orders. Please read the "About Me" page for a little more detail on this decision. I have a few very talented leatherworking friends I am referring orders to. They do very good work, are timely, and I'd sure trust them with anything. They have access to any of my cutting patterns and tips and techniques I have been taught. Please contact me and I can get you in touch with them.

People ask me to make custom briefcases either for their own use, or to give as a gift. A functional beautiful briefcase is always appreciated. I do a few different styles. The traditional hard-side attache case is covered on the front with a tooled leather overlay. It is secured with 3/8" engraved conchos for a traditional Western look. These larger bags can be tooled extensively, inlaid with exotic leather or hair-on cowhide, or given a simple border for conservative style. I use practical pockets inside- a couple of file pockets as well as miscellaneous pockets inside the lid.  My cases are spacious enough to carry laptops, and my customers like the sturdy protection the leather offers.

The traditional soft side briefcases also are a favorite. The silver buckle sets, and conchos make nice accents. The buckles are secured with sturdy tuck loop catches for easy access. A hair-on hide gusset adds a Western flair. Some choose to have a divider inside, and I can put pen loops or pockets on the divider. You can choose to have a matching shoulder strap as well. Other popular options include a soft removable pad on the bottom to protect your laptop computer. Because these are custom made, we can make one up to fit any size laptop.
