We created Penton to empower the modern woman's lifestyle
– with a beautiful briefcase that gets the job done.
Time and again, we heard that finding a great women’s briefcase is a tricky endeavour. Men’s briefcases are bulky, technical and masculine, and handbags are fashion accessories rather than being functional.
Starting with the design, practicality and premium materials of our most popular product, Palissy Briefcase, we refined the details to create a women’s briefcase both beautiful and practical.
Italian Vachetta leather
Tanned using traditional methods, this Italian leather is characterised by a smooth surface and natural finish.
With time, it will age beautifully and develop a rich character unique to vegetable-tanned leather.
Limited and personalised
Working with small, artisanal factories, making each bag takes time and output is limited. That’s why our first, and only in 2017, production run of Penton is limited to 50 pieces.
To celebrate the first 50 pieces, every one will be individually numbered and personalised with your name or initials.
"We’ve been making men’s leather goods for 5 years. With Penton we offer you the same quality and design – with a distinctly feminine aesthetic."
Mattis & Niklas Oppermann
With individually brushed and polished teeth, this symmetrical zipper creates a refined contrast to the natural leather.
Made in Italy
This product is handmade by a small team of artisans, in the country renowned for leather goods manufacturing.
We know our products stand the test of time which is why any Carl Friedrik purchase is covered by a lifetime warranty.
