15" Briefcase - Black Dry Wax - Natural Wooly Leather


Sold Out


The Vermilyea Pelle x Division Road 15” Briefcase is made with rare and limited materials by the best in the Northwest (maybe the world) at making handcrafted bags for the rugged gentleman. This exclusive-to-Division Road collection is created out of a UK made military grade and water resistant 18 oz. firm dry waxed cotton canvas twill fabric from Halley Stevenson. With a super dry wax applied at the yarn state, this twill will patina while not loosing its water resistant properties over time and through heavy usage. Combined with a special recipe of Natural Wooly leather developed specifically for our collections for the straps, binding, and facings, and each has been hand waxed and burnished to create a contrast in color and texture that will provide a lifetime of patina evolution. This particular Wooly leather is a deviation from a Chromexcel that uses a heavy amount of a natural wool raw lanolin to yield a maximum duty, weather resistant harness leather. The Briefcase is based on a traditional version but has been adapted for the modern outdoorsman, able to accommodate most 15” laptops or a 13” with a protective sleeve. The large interior sleeve is complemented by three additional interior pockets for devices, books, accessories and pens, along with an antique brass key ring clip for secure but quick access to your keys. The full leather wrap around strap work maintains the bag’s form and overlaps the two snapped, large, lengthwise exterior pockets for documents, magazines or portfolios, and creates a snapped leather handle for easy carrying and quick closure. Coming with all of the signature Vermilyea Pelle details of craftsmanship and durability like hand-hammered solid copper riveting for reinforcement, an adjustable and removable leather shoulder strap, a full leather bottom for protection and hand-antiqued snaps and hardware, this is a luggage piece that will last for generations. Wanting to present the perfect heritage-based bag, we produced this exclusive collaboration collection with Vermilyea Pelle to express our ethos that products can have style, workmanship, function and design all wrapped into one.
