Benjamin Franklin is the founding father who winks at us, that ambitious urban entrepreneur who seems made of flesh rather than marble ...
~ Walter Isaacson (Benjamin Franklin, An American Life)
Inspired by the statesman, inventor, theorist and author, our Benjamin Leather Briefcase is all about helping the workingman accomplish his tasks. Its weathered, been-around-the-world look, feel and smell of fine leather speaks volumes of its owner. Another true Renaissance and Mission Man.
Intentionality was our emphasis, from the hand-selected, marbled, twice-tanned leather (both chrome and vegetable tanning) to the rich yet simplistic lines visible in each Benjamin leather good. As you can see in the product images, we sourced our authentic, vintage early century inspiration piece from a UK family that had passed it down for years. With a little convincing, they graciously allowed us to purchase it and transform it into our modern day take on the Benjamin Briefcase.
Set this bag down in a meeting and see who looks like the wise-beyond-his-years go-getter. Remember, the Constitution only gives people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself.
