I have now accepted orders for all my remaining stocks of raw materials and intend to retire when I have completed and delivered them. So I have removed all the order buttons. I still have the equipment and premises and am happy to do any repair work.

I would like to express my boundless appreciation to all my customers – particularly the ‘returning’ ones – for allowing me to make a living from such a pleasurable activity.

But there is every possibility that later next year I will want to make a few articles for my more persistent customers so have decided to start a ‘reserve list’ for customers who might want me to contact them in this event.

I really enjoy making leather bags and am still able to do that well enough. It’s keeping all the small business plates spinning that I feel too old to do anymore.

If you would like to go on that reserve list then please email me.

Briefcase Satchel


(16″ x 10.5″ x 6″ / 405mm x 265mm x 150mm)

As the name suggests, the briefcase satchel is a hybrid between the satchel and the briefcase. Henry makes them from the same robust (but lighter and more flexible) full grain satchel leathers rather than the thicker, stiffer, full grain briefcase leathers.

It fastens with the convenient briefcase style snap lock. Henry constructs the bag with the same detachable shoulder strap and (very comfortable) handle arrangement that he uses for the briefcases. There is a zipped pocket on the back panel. The gussetted front pocket has pen loops and a phone/glasses/ipod pouch. Inside the main body of the bag is a ‘hammock’ style compartment with a strip of shock absorber in the base to protect your laptop. There are also a set of briefcase style internal gussetted pockets for CDs and electronic gubbins (chargers etc.) stitched to the face of the ‘hammock’.
