Not all leather briefcases were made equally, which is why we use the finest quality Italian leather, full grain, handmade in Florence, Italy, for the highest quality you can get. You can't beat an Italian leather bag. Artisan craftsman in Italy have been refining their skills for years, producing the finest quality briefcases and laptop bags you'll find.
Full grain leather is found from the top layer of the cowhide. It is the only type of leather that actually has a grain, hence the name. Full-grain leather is more expensive because it's harder to produce, but it looks better over time than other types. We use full grain vegetable tanned leather as it's even higher quality.
