Highly delighted - amazing quality

I’m highly delighted with the quality of the leather and workmanship.
I bought it for short business trips and it’s only just big enough to get all my EC’s in.
With hindsight I might have been better with the double but then perhaps that full might have been too heavy.
I’ve attached what I can comfortably get in so still room for a magazine, newspaper or an A4 folder of notes.

Dear Chris,

Thank you so much for your feedback! We're really glad you enjoy using our Palissy briefcase , we've found it's a definite customer favorite! When we hear from happy customers like you, we spread positivity around!

All our best,

Michael T.
It’s perfect!

I’m a long time customer. I bought a Goswell ten years ago that I took all over Europe; a Vallance I bought seven years ago that I got me through Ireland, the US, and China; and now the Palissy, with additional capacity for the next adventure. A well rounded arsenal. And the Desk Mat got me through COVID lockdown in comfort.

Head turner bag

The quality of Carl Friedrik is spot on, Palissy Briefcase is so amazing that my 7 years daughter told me that when I grew up I will take your bag to work and don't give it to brother :)
