Saddleback Leather Co. "A Dark Coffee Brown Leather Briefcase, Backpack, Handbag"
Each Saddleback Leather piece is built with thick, tough to sew full grain leather with clean unfinished edges that scratches beautifully (ages and patinas perfectly). Every work of leather is made by man not by automated machine. Because of that and the thickness, the seams and stitches aren't always precisely spaced, but they sure are strong. They are not perfect and that's what makes them perfect. Our craftsmen use the toughest thread around and stout rivets on all stress points. We refuse to use zippers, snaps or anything that'll eventually break. If you want a flawless mass produced pretty boy bag made for the masses, by the masses, your search is not over. You might find a small scar or two on your leather (which was the least of the bull's ill fortune). That's the beauty of full grain boot leather. Photos of these briefcases all over the world and the differences of full grain, top grain, genuine an bonded leather are on the website. These are handmade, to last longer and age better than you ever will

One center buckle and two optional side buckles, converts to backpack, has false bottom and multi-purpose removable side straps and shoulder strap, 4 inner pockets; 2 for accessories 2 for pens 2 outer side and 1 large back magazine pocket, hidden reinforcing nylon straps and stout rivets at all stress points, tough and thick 4 to 5 oz. full grain leather sewn with the strongest thread we could find
