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.

Large Satchel


(15″ x 10.5″ x 6″ / 380mm x 265mm x 115mm)

The large satchel can comfortably accommodate most laptops and conventional A4 and foolscap files. This makes it a viable alternative to the more formal handmade leather briefcases. The full grain leather is thinner and more flexible than that used for the briefcases but is every bit as durable. The shoulder strap is 1.5″ / 38mm wide and made from a double thickness of leather and is adjustable down its whole length.

The basic bag is an empty shell with a single front buckle closure. If, however, you want to customise the design by adding one or other add-on option, the price would change accordingly. You can specify any changes you want in the ‘queries/requests’ box in the order form which Henry will confirm by personal email.

Price: £155

Your add on design choices are:

  • Double front buckle with intergrated flat grab handle +£25.
  • Upgrade to a raised handle +£5.
  • Front pocket feature including pen slots, phone pouch and zip pocket +£40.
  • Central divider feature with rear slipper pockets +£35.

You can stipulate the length of the shoulder strap (measured from the top of the bag, up, over your shoulder, and back to the top of the bag) for no additional charge.
