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.

The Briefcase Lite


(16″ x 11″ x (2″+2″) / 405mm x 280mm x (50mm + 50mm))

Henry makes all his briefcases from vegetable tanned leather because it makes a strong, handsome bag that is rigid enough to enable it to stand on its own and is roomy enough to accommodate most conventional laptops and files (If in doubt, email Henry the dimensions of any questionable articles). All central dividers and zip sleeve backings are made of leather. No cardboard! All briefcases have a flat pocket with a card sleeve and slots for 2 pens inside the bag.

The Briefcase Lite, so called because it is slim line, has only two compartments. If, however, you wanted to customise the design by adding one or other add-on option, the price would go up according to the list below. You would like the buckle fastening to replace the snap lock fastening (£10 surcharge) you can specify this in the ‘queries/requests’ box in the order form which Henry will confirm by personal email.

Price: £160

The prices of the individual add-on options are as follows:

  • Detachable shoulder strap: £45
  • Back (or inside) zip sleeve: £30
  • Front buckle strap replacing central snap lock: £15
