For those who live a professional life, having a leather briefcase is a necessity. Since briefcases were first invented, they have come a long way. Original designs sported an iron frame, with hinges and a small handle on top. We make some style briefcases, like the Ciabatta, with leather wrapped metal frames but most of our briefcases are more casual, soft sided messenger bags. Briefcases and messenger bags made of leather are the most popular, on-trend accessory for businessmen and women alike, as they are classy and practical. 



We specialize in producing briefcases with Italian hand stained leather, which is metal free, sustainable, and not harmful to people. This centuries old Tuscan tanning tradition produces colorful leather that is easy to craft and gets better with age. Our leather briefcases are rugged, sturdy, refined classics that last forever and patina beautifully over time. Whether you are commuting to the office or working out of your local Starbucks, we know you will enjoy the feel of our handcrafted briefcase designs made in natural full grain leather. Floto leather briefcases are the best option for office professionals, freelancers, and dreamers. 



Quality, rugged, and perfectly built, Floto leather briefcases are made with high-quality leather. Our hand stained leathers will develop an attractive patina over time and look better with age. In addition to the best quality leather, we use durable YKK brass zippers, brass hardware, and thick bonded nylon thread to build strong briefcases.  Our new Floto 3G briefcase lock is reinforced and top rated for performance.  Some of our briefcases are also made with durable 8 oz cotton duck canvas lining that is milled in America.



After a while you will notice that your leather briefcase becomes an extension of yourself - it commutes to work with you, it holds your accessories, pens, laptops, chargers, etc.  Along the way each mark, scuff, and scratch tells the stories of your adventures.  Your Floto briefcase might also get caught in the rain, sit on a dirty subway platform, or get coffee spilled on it.  If your leather briefcase starts to look dirty and tired, don’t worry – you can clean, condition, and polish your Floto briefcase to look new again anytime with our specially formulated Floto Leather Cream.  We recommend cleaning and conditioning your Floto briefcase annually or as needed.  To clean use leather cleaner or a damp paper towel to remove any loose dirt and residues from the leather and then apply Floto Leather Cream to oil the skin and extend the life of your briefcase. 


What's the most popular briefcase color?

Vecchio Brown and Saddle Brown are the most popular colors followed by Olive, Red and Black.

What is the difference between Vecchio Brown and Saddle Brown?

The color base is the same, but Vecchio Brown has a semi-gloss finish and Saddle Brown has a matte finish. The semi-gloss finish of the Vecchio Brown is created by heat, not chemicals. The tannery puts the leather skins through a special machine that applies heat to the leather. The more heat that is applied, the more glossy it becomes.
