The Peel attaché case
The Peel attaché is a slim, lid-over attaché with hand-stitched closure and a tapered raw edge finish.
It has a large compartment in the lid for document storage and is fully lockable with its own key.
Each Peel attaché case is individually created in our Cambridge workshop by Swaine Adeney's leather master, who sculpts and hand stitches the fine English bridle leather. (The handle alone takes more than two hours to make: it is made up of eight individual components which must be sewn together.) In fact, the leather is completely hand stitched with natural linen thread using a "twin needle" saddlery technique.
Once the internal pockets have been added, the attaché passes to the metal worker's bench, where the solid brass locks and fittings are hand cast, hand-polished to a satin finish and attached to the case.
Dimensions: 17.5 x 12.5 x 3"
