The Horween Briefcase is our take on the ideal way to carry your work essentials in beautiful style. Rich Horween leather and rugged solid brass hardware impeccably constructed in California. This is your new daily carry.
We worked for a long time to bring our dreams of a Horween bag to life. The group of craftsmen we finally chose have been making bags in California longer than I’ve been alive. It’s in their blood. Yes, it’s their job, but it’s also their hobby and passion. They eat, breathe and live making some of the finest bags in the country.
The design of the bag is clean, functional and classic. There’s a single zipper compartment with a solid-brass two-way YKK #10 zipper. In place of standard brass pulls, we’re making our own from the same Horween leather as the bag, and riveting them. The handles are made of a burnished Horween latigo leather in a matching color. They are riveted and sewn to the sides of the bag for an extra-durable connection. An adjustable shoulder strap is also made of this latigo leather and provides additional carrying options for your commute. On the interior of the bag, we’re using a heavyweight waxed canvas for the two interior dividers (one on each side). Each of these dividers/laptop sleeves is large enough to fit a 15" MacBook Pro. Sewn into the right side one is a leather organizer with pockets for pens, business cards, and your phone. Lastly, we've finished these briefcases with feet sewn on the bottom for extra durability.
This briefcase is crafted from full grain steer hide made by the Horween Leather Company in Chicago. Horween's Chromexcel is famous and Color #8 even more so. We've used it in accessories and they're beautiful. We've used it in our sneakers and they became the stand-out color in the line. Like Horween’s Dublin line, Chromexcel has tremendous base shade and pull up. The difference with #8 is in its dark burgundy color. Its deep base results in a much more subtle beauty. You still get color variation as the bag bends and creases, but it's more fluid and muted than in lighter CXL colors. Instead, you see wonderful gradations from deep brown-reds to slightly lighter reds. Even differences in light bring out new beautiful shades.
