I've been sourcing leather bag manufacturers overseas for many months now only to be disappointed with the quality. I am wanting to create very high quality bags that can last a lifetime. For a style reference, see a competitor company - Saddleback Leather which offers very high quality bags which carry a 100 year warranty. I am looking for someone that can create the same quality and workmanship. Thanks.

Hello,
I have attached a few photos of a briefcase I just made for a client. I use 5-6 oz., hand saddle-stiched (waxed linen), with pig split liner inside. I am also a fan of the saddle back style of over built, tough and rugged.

Hi, I am not sure if you are looking for a craftsman, or a factory? are you looking for individual items, or a factory to produce wholesale lines. you can find examples of some of my work, simon baker casemakers, in my gallery, no. 1, or via my web site, simon baker casemakers.
regards, simon baker
