Nothing looks smarter or more sophisticated than a woman or a man walking through a building, carrying a leather briefcase. The image shouts professionalism. A female executive carrying a trendy leather briefcase
or tote bag
- especially if it is monogrammed with her initials - in a vibrant color looks elegant. A beautiful leather briefcase
can actually complement a person’s attire. Not only can it be used to carry work-related items but it can also be considered an accessory and a stylish one at that.
What could possibly be classier or more unique than a personalized leather briefcase? There are many styles of leather cases available, in many different styles and colors, especially if you are looking for one to accommodate your laptop computer and be easy on your back, like our leather laptop backpack
with sturdy padded shoulder straps. A personalized leather briefcase you won’t find in a department store or a store selling purses, bags, briefcases, etc. To find your personalized leather briefcase you would need to shop at specialty stores
like those provided through the Internet.
A briefcase was initially designed to carry business or work-related documents. Nowadays they are used for so much more. A personalized leather briefcase today may contain anything, from a pack of chewing gum to a toothbrush and toothpaste. A leather briefcase is designed with several compartments in which to carry all sorts of personal items. Perhaps initially intended for documents, pens and calculators, these compartments now carry cell phones and sandwiches, medications and make-up. The briefcase, over the years, has become extremely convenient.
A personalized leather briefcase
would make a great gift for anyone working in a professional environment like a lawyer
, a doctor, an accountant
, a secretary, a teacher and so on. It would be a lovely gift to give to a student graduating from college and starting a new job. Having the leather briefcase personalized with engraved initials would make the gift even more special. Carrying a briefcase makes a person look classy and sophisticated. A personalized leather briefcase would make the individual carrying it feel classy and proud. When having lunch with a group of business associates, it’s not likely they’ll each have personalized leather briefcases.
After all since a briefcase is part of their everyday attire, why not choose one that is trendy and unique. In fact, why not choose a personalized leather briefcase for every day of the week.

Leather Travel Accessories
If you know anything at all about leather, you are aware of its strength. Leather items are able to withstand much more than many materials. They hold up well in any climate or environment. Tearing a piece of leather would require the strength of an extraordinary individual. Because it is so strong, leather is recommended to wear on motorcycles for safety reasons. In case of an accident, leather is capable of protecting a person’s skin when colliding with the road. Leather is a dependable material and so any product made from leather is also dependable, provided that the leather used is of good quality and not made from leather scraps or remnants from different skins.
Leather travel accessories would be great to take on any vacation and should be considered a necessity. Accessories such as wallets, purses, tote bags, cosmetic bags, shaving kits, passport wallets and travel wallets made from leather would make great additions to any travel list. These items would fit well with leather luggage sets. Because leather works well in any climate or environment, leather travel accessories can be used on any trip.
Leather travel bags such as suitcases are smart choices for transporting clothing and other travel necessities. Leather luggage provides strong and reliable storage. Because leather repels rain, there’s no worry about getting your belongings wet or ruined. This is important especially if you expect to do any amount of walking or hiking. Do keep in mind that wheeled luggage, like a rolling leather laptop bag, is much better for the back than any bag that is carried in the hand or on the shoulder. According to recent reports on the news and in health journals, carrying more than 10% of one's body weight in a bag that is held in the hand or carried on one's shoulder can be injurious to one's back. So the extra amount spent to purchase such bags will pay off in the end.
Finding good quality leather travel items is also important. There are bags and suitcases with manufacturer labels stating the product is made from genuine leather. Many people are taken in by this and buy these pieces of luggage expecting great products. They soon discover that they have been misled when the material begins to rip and fray. They may have gotten a good deal but it would have been much wiser to spend a few extra dollars to buy the real thing.
Leather products are a smart investment. Many high quality leather accessories may outlive the individual who buys them. Today, with the various colors available in leather travel wallets, bags and other items, these pieces are very trendy as well. When trying to decide what to buy your son or daughter for an upcoming trip (like SPRING BREAK), consider leather. You won't be disappointed.

Gifts of Love for Her– the Luxury of Leather
There are more ways to say, “I love you,” than there are people in love, but fine leather is one way to express your love that is both traditional and unusual. Leather gifts
are traditionally given for the third anniversary, yet many people don’t think of leather as a gift for a beautiful woman.
Fine leather gifts are actually the perfect choice for any woman in your life, whether it’s your wife, girlfriend, sister or mother. The rich texture and wonderful of aroma of fine leather makes it a gift that speaks of taste, refinement and luxury. There isn’t a woman in the world that doesn’t appreciate a gift like that. Leather Purses for Every Personality
The proper way to give a leather gift is to find something a bit unusual that expresses your sentiment and is a reflection of the receiver’s femininity. For the woman you love, a leather purse
is something that she will carry for years, thinking of you every time she uses it. There’s something about the soft, supple feel of leather that’s almost sensual. And leather becomes better with age, softening, breaking in and becoming uniquely hers.
Choose a leather purse that matches the personality of the woman; perhaps a structured bag
with lots of pockets and compartments for the highly organized woman on the go. But remember her whimsical side, too – leather comes in a wonderful array of rich colors these days, and you can surprise her with something truly beautiful in a vibrant red
or a soft, pastel turquoise. Romantic Leather Hearts
Leather doesn’t have to be traditional in function, either. You don’t have to stick with purses or apparel. In fact, some of the most romantic leather gifts
are those that are completely unexpected. If the woman in your life travels a lot, let her know that she is always close to your heart wherever she goes with a set of rich leather luggage tags
in the shape of a heart. Colors like carnation pink and wildberry along with monogrammed initials make these little hearts even more romantic.
Are you giving your someone special a piece of jewelry or tickets to a special concert? Why not make it more special by tucking the gift into a leather sweetheart everything box
that’s a gift in itself and so much more elegant than a cardboard box with paper wrappings? Or for the bride who’s looking for something unique for her bridesmaids, these are a loving token that will grace their dressers for years to come.
Sisters and Moms would love to receive a lasting leather gift, too. You don’t have to know their size to give them a beautiful, heart-shaped leather jewelry box
that’s covered in red cowhide and closes with a gold-tone clasp. Multiple compartments for rings, necklaces and earrings will have them appreciating your practical side while the heart shape shows just how you feel without having to say a word. What's more, you can monogram it with her initials and make this gift truly unique!Surprise Gifts Wrapped in Leather
Leather is a wonderful gift all by itself, but if you really want to impress a woman, add a touch of leather to an already spectacular gift to add that special note that she will always remember. Leather travel accessories
add a touch of continental luxury to any trip. Why not tuck those surprise tickets to the islands into a leather travel document case
so that she’ll have place to keep everything she needs organized when you fly away together? If you’ve been planning a trip overseas, a leather passport wallet
in her favorite color, monogrammed with her initials, will remind her of you no matter where she is in the world.
There is definitely something romantic about a gift of love made of fine leather…the supple feel, the rich aroma that only fine leather has….and the real beauty of genuine leather with its fine grain and tiny imperfections…as unique and individual as the woman you love.

When we were browsing our competitors' sites this weekend, as we are prone to do now and again, we came across the "new" Kenneth Cole 1/2 Flap Brief
on Wilson's Leather website.
With all due respect, but our Double Compartment Leather Briefcase
, a copy of the aforementioned case (only slightly smaller and more convenient in size), came out in the Spring of 2005 and is selling very well on our site. So that's why the Kenneth Cole briefcase is not exactly new, as far as we are concerned.
Furthermore, our version comes in a very attractive Cordovan color, in addition to the black one. And, we also offer monogramming / personalization on this case, making it unique for each recipient. And, finally, it also costs 60% less than Wilson's discounted price. Notice the image of this beauty (above) from our site.
So, we may not have the resources of the big guys, but we sure know our leather goods and our style. We also have a passion for leather and a desire to satisfy each one of our customers. Why? Because we listen to our customers, read all our emails, contemplate on all the feedback that we receive and then try to adjust accordingly.
We have our loyal customers to thank for our growth and we are not going to change the way we do things around here.
