Burnished leather undergoes a unique polishing process where heat and friction, are applied. This technique melts the wax introduced during tanning, and upon cooling, produces a lustrous sheen. The outcome is a radiant, high-gloss surface that augments the leather's beauty while bolstering its sturdiness and moisture resistance. The Harvard briefcases, crafted from this burnished leather in shades like burgundy or navy, stand out distinctly. They're ideal for those who appreciate a fusion of classic craftsmanship with modern colour palettes. Featuring a solid brass lock, and this standout bag is sure to command attention in the office.

Here's what a happy customer has to say:

Customer review for the Harvard briefcase

“First, this is an absolutely magnificent briefcase. I work in corporate law and have owned and come across all manner of bags from different companies. I would put this bag right up there (or better) in terms of quality and design. The bridle leather is beautiful and of the highest quality. Trust me when I say that the price of this bag goes beyond reasonable to unbelievable. You will not find another bag like this at this price point. Second, the customer service is really above and beyond. There was an issue with an import fee that was in no way the sellers’ fault. However, they worked quickly to get it resolved and the package arrived here in the United States 9 days after being ordered. Couldn’t recommend more."
