Italian Vachetta leather
The traditional style leather characterised by its smooth surface and natural finish. Italian heritage.
Made in Italy
Just outside of Naples, every Carl Friedrik product is handmade by a small team of artisans - masters of their craft.
Heavy-duty Raccagni zipper
Every tooth in the zip has been individually brushed and polished before being assembled on the chain.
With a zipper extending around three sides, it's easy to access all your items and stay organised.
An open pocket on the front with the lining contrasting the leather.
It is the traveller's dream - keeping your passport and boarding within easy reach.
Nine-to-five or Overnight
For your agile, circadian briefcase and an everyday companion, go with Palissy Briefcase.
When you are between home, the office, and the odd overnight excursion, choose Palissy 25-hour.
stylish & versatile
Item was great other than it was abit tougher and heavier than Ive expected but still, it looks very stylish and professional.
The build quality and look is absolutely great. Perfect for carrying documents, keys, etc. One flaw is stability.. as soon as you put the laptop or something heavier in tends to not remain upright and falls over.
My Palissy tan briefcase is lovely. The leather and design is beautiful, whilst the chrome elements on the bag give it a modern classic edge. Without the shoulder strap the bag fulfils both form and function perfectly, with the shoulder strap attached and due to the design the shoulder strap can at times get caught up when opening and closing the bag. My bag did have the slightest blemish on the leather on delivery, but was minor enough to be over looked, and after two weeks daily use I have not noticed the mark since (though at this price I may have expected this to be spotted in QA). Would recommend the bag and will hopefully buy other items from the Carl Friedrik collection at some point.
Bag was very good and certainly very good for the money. A few little things to note since i am very picky:
-Bag leather was a stffer than i expected (im sure it will soften over time)
-placement of shoulder strap latches looks a little funny on top of the bag instead of on the sides
-main gripe - zipper is a bit big/wide. a smaller / more subtle zipper (maybe even body coloured zipper) would be more elegant
