We believe in tough genuine leather bags. We believe it should last over a few decades. Making a leather bag from that perspective is a demanding initiative.
We pick leathers which can age well over time; leather’s which do not crack around the corners. We process these leathers differently to give it adequate protection against fungal infections. After selecting these leathers, we have worked hard in making these bags to add years to its life. We have reinforced the handles with extra layers of interlining materials as well as heavy duty Nylon Stitching. The Zip as well as Pullers are heavy duty. We have used 6-ounce rich cotton lining on the inside. All in all, this bag has been built to last.
This bag is one of the rare bags which stands straight, unlike most leather portfolio bags which need to be in horizontal position this one will stand straight – even if you most of your stuff in one of the compartments. This bag has been designed to facilitate the vertical position. The bag comes with two compartments, one padded laptop compartment which has been designed to not let your laptop touch the floor. There are two large exterior side pockets to create space for most of your miscellaneous stuff. There is one zipped pocket on the inside. The bag comes with 100% cotton sling handle which comes with metal adjuster. The handles and the edges have been colored with 4 layers of color to give it a rounded finish.
