Amazing functionality with modern aesthetics

I have used it now for a couple of months and cannot praise it enough. The style, colouring and quality are second to none; but the real gem in this story, is its functionality. I used a Louis Vuitton for 18 years and the quality was second to none; until now... this is so much more functional; lighter and stands out more.


Palissy Briefcase – Patina

Palissy by Carl Friedrik.

Fantastic quality and great attention to the details. The zip deserves special mention as this is where corners are sometimes cut-but this one is clearly made for a long life! Look seriously at Carl Friedrik- this is as good as well known products costing well over twice as much.
