The making of a briefcase

Every one of our leather goods products is handmade.  

The Dom Reilly briefcase uses:

32 pieces of leather which are cut using 19 different patterns.
19 pieces of lining material which are cut using 11 different patterns.
43 different reinforcement materials which are cut using 22 different patterns.
Each raw edge is coated with three coats of paint to ensure an immaculate and long lasting finish.
The briefcases are assembled by several artisans including expert pattern makers, leather cutters and master stitchers.
Every briefcase takes two days to complete and there are over 50 steps to making the briefcase from cutting the leather to packaging the product in the bespoke Dom Reilly cotton dust bag.
