This briefcase is as simple as they come, handcrafted with those who need to carry little amounts of paperwork in mind. Behind the main front flap over that closes with a single clip-lock hidden behind a buckle, you will find one front pocket, right behind is a full length and depth zipped private compartment, ideal for keeping documents nice and flat. It separates the front pocket from the main compartment. Our clients have found that a 13" MacBook laptop will just about fit in this briefcase without a case but it will be a snug fit.
We use thick full grain, vegetable tanned leather hides to handcraft our satchels and briefcases. The leather for this briefcase will be no thinner that 2.3mm and that makes for a strong bag that will protect its content. Some might find our leather to be too stiff, to those we explain that full grain leather needs to be broken into, worn, used and loved before it can be truly enjoyed for decades to come. We tan our leather the old fashion way, in barrels for weeks with vegetable extracts, this means that our leather contains no traces of chrome and is eco friendly. The Red leather of this briefcase will age beautifully and develop a dark cherry patina with time.
The Red Ruitertassen leather Briefcase is a wonderful bag for office use and entrepreneurs who carry small amounts of paperwork and a small laptop or tablet. It is strong and will protect its contents well. The single buckle makes it quick to open and reminds us that it is a Ruitertassen. Our red briefcase suits women who need to be mobile, smart and efficient.
