Using the Palissy Briefcase is an amazing feeling

I have already using my Palissy Briefcase 4 weeks. I have only positive experiences. I use it every day gladly. The Palissy Briefcase has a beautiful design and a great craftmenship.
The contact is great with the customer service: fast,kindly and helpful.

Best price-performance ratio so far

I ordered my bag a while ago and I have to say that I was a bit skeptical. I like to buy things in a shop where I can see the product and feel the quality.
After some problems with my order, I got my bag 8 weeks later.
After receiving the package, I was really impressed with the quality!
What these people do is the next step in the bag industry!
Needless to say, I'm happy with the bag. Since I have it, I use it for my daily use.
A few weeks later I ordered the Islington laptop case.
what do I have to say?
Just fantastic.
Fits perfectly in my briefcase.
The customer service is really good. Even on the first day of Christmas I got an answer. definitely not normal in Germany.

Keep it up!

Couldn't be happier

After much deliberation on a briefcase, I finally settled with the Palissy from Carl Friedrich. I was so excited to receive it and I was not disappointed. Beautiful design married to superb craftsmanship!

Palissy briefcase

In general I am very pleased with the quality of the bag. The only reason for not giving it five stars is that I am missing a(n) (additional) pouch for my spectacle case and an integrated key holder. I agree with Matthew S’ comments regarding the strap.

Carl Friedrik’s customer support has been very helpful throughout my purchase experiance. The support provided has been extremely professional, focusing on the my needs. They customer support gets a five star rating.

Redefining the modern briefcase

The Palissy briefcase is beautifully constructed with an elegant design. It redefines the modern briefcase.
