Leather briefcase Cosimo: a high quality product handmade in the Florentine style. Discover the collection of leather bags of FP Pelletterie.
Classic Italian leather briefcase for men handmade in Florence according to the principles of the ancient leather tradition. Being an object to be used every day it requires great robustness and so the material used is the genuine cowhide, a vegetable tanned leather which has always been used for shoe soles and luggage items. This Tuscany leather bag from Firenze is closed by a snap buckle and it has two leather-lined interior compartments with four small open pockets, a larger one closed by a zipper, a mobile phone holder and a card slot. Mainly used to work, this briefcase is designed to carry computer / laptop up to 15'', tablet, notebook, documents or books in A4 format. The shoulder strap is also handmade in real cowhide Florentine leather and it is adjustable, so that it can adapt to any need for style or stature. This briefcase takes its name from Cosimo il Vecchio, the most important man of Florence.

The Tuscan cowhide leather is a vegetable tanned material loved all over the world thanks to its impressive resistance, so much so that in the last two centuries in Florence it was used for the shoes of the military and shepherds. It has the chameleon characteristic to be able to change its color over time, adjust its look year after year in new shades. All the leathers that we use for our collection come from the food industry, so as no animal is directly slaughtered.

Painting process:
The particular type of painting process we use is called vegetable tanning, which mainly involves the use of natural like tannin extracted from plants such as mimosa or chestnut. This allows the cowhide leather to be able to get year after year shades always different from the starting color, depending on how you use it or how much you expose it to the sunlight. The process is entirely made by hand, according to techniques that come from generation to generation in Tuscany, the country of the vegetable tanned leather in Italy.

Sign of times:
Everyone dreams to buy an object that lasts as long as possible. This leather briefcase mad in cowhide is certainly a good example, since this material is not only resistant to water and weather, but above all allows you to try to remove the superficial scratches that are inevitably created by time. The color is completely spread by hand, which let it be absorbed by the leather in its depth, so that if you accidentally remove a layer of color on the surface, you can try to restore it using a cloth and a natural cream.
