Leather Shoulder Bags
A shoulder bag usually has long straps and is designed to be carried over one shoulder. Many of our shoulder bags also have a smaller handle which allows you to carry them as a handbag should you want to. The shoulder bags in our shop come in a variety of styles, including the ever popular tote bag and shopper.
A tote bag, also commonly known as a shopper, tends to be soft and light and have double handles which are fairly long. The actual bag is usually quite large with a wide opening for easy access and more room than an average shoulder bag. This style of bag is ideal for mothers with babies or young children, for days out when you need to carry more than usual with you or for a fun day out shopping.
'Lipari' Shoulder Bag
Our other styles of shoulder bags tend to have detachable and fully adjustable straps enabling you to use them in a variety of ways, as a handbag, shoulder bags of different lengths or as a cross body bag.

Versatile Leather Bags
The leather bags in this section come in many different shapes and sizes, but, the one thing they have in common is that they all have a versatile strap configuration. This style of bag is becoming increasingly popular as it allows you to carry one bag in several different ways which is much better for your back and your posture.
The smaller bags in this section tend to have a long, adjustable strap which enables you to carry it as either a shoulder bag (see the section above) or a cross body bag. Cross body bags are useful in crowded places such as airports, train stations and crowded city centre streets. They are usually small and light, but large enough for your money and everyday essentials. The beauty of a cross body bag is that it is always in front of you and close to your body, leaving you with your hands free but your bag and belongings safe. Our cross body bags are all made from high quality leather which means are not only stronger but will also last a lifetime. This cross body style is particularly useful when traveling by plane because not only is it convenient in the busy airport, it is also small enough to tuck into your hand luggage while boarding.
'Capri' Versatile Bag
Others have a small handle, allowing you to carry the bag as a handbag, and a long detachable strap which also allows you to carry it on your shoulder. One of the most popular styles is a small to medium sized bag with two attached handles, a short one on the top a long one on the back. The short handle enables you to carry it in your hand, over your wrist or in the crook of your arm. The long strap on the bag comes with a zip, which when closed, means you can carry the bag over your shoulder. With the zip undone, you can also carry it as a backpack. Ingenious!

Others have straps which are designed to be pulled through in different ways which will turn your bag into a handbag, shoulder bag or rucksack.

There is nothing more luxurious than a high quality leather business bag or travel bag, particuarly if it has been designed and hand made in Italy from the best Tuscan leather. All of our business and travel bags are not only superior in quality, but also have many beautiful design features such as traditional stitching and beautiful metal fittings.

Leather Business Bags
Many different styles of bag can be used for business nowadays with messenger bags and backpacks often replacing the traditional leather briefcase. Also, with the advent of smartphones and tablets, men now have more than just a wallet to carry around on a daily basis. With this in mind, we have included messenger bags and backpacks in our business sections all of which are suitable for both men and women.
The more traditional style of leather business bags we have range from small, slender briefcases to the large, old style school satchel. They all come in the normal tan, brown and black leather associated with business bags, but many come in beautifully dyed leather in colours such as blue, vivid red and green.
'San Remo' Messenger Bag
A lot of the backpacks in this section are quite small, but large enough for smartphones, tablets, small laptops and documents. This also gives them a dual purpose as they can be used at weekends and for other reasons other than work. Some of the backpacks are dedicated business bags with slots for pens, phones and business cards and are large enough to carry a full size laptop.
'Viterbo' Business Bag
A messenger bag is styled on the old style 'post' bag and usually has two or three compartments and a full size flap closing over the whole bag. Our messenger bags come in many different sizes with the larger ones easily capable of holding a tablet and quite a few documents, as well as your phone, wallet and other essentials. Our more expensive styles of messenger bag are made from vintage leather which means that not only will they last a lifetime but they will look better with age. A smaller messenger bag is a very popular style for men to use on a day to day basis, rather than just for work.

Leather travel bags are a good investment, they are strong, hard wearing and should last forever. They come in different styles, mainly duffel and backpack, but there some are more square or rectangular in shape. All of the bags in the travel section are ideal carry on bags for when you are flying. All of our travel bags close by means of a full length zip and usually have two additional straps with strong buckles. Nearly all of them have metal studs on the base to protect the travel bag as much as possible.
The duffel travel bags are perhaps the most traditional shape and have a lot of space inside as there tends to be just the one compartment. They have comfortable, padded handles and usually come with a detachable shoulder strap which enables you to carry it like the old style cloth duffel bag. It makes them easy to carry on and off planes as you can use the normal handle when you are in crowds and then carry the duffel bag on your shoulder when walking any distance.
'Jesi' Travel Bag
The rucksacks in this section are larger than the rucksacks in the business section. They tend to have just one large compartment inside and a variety of additional compartments on the outside. These extra compartments make them the perfect carry on or hold luggage as you can store the items you want with you on the plane on the outside of the rucksack for easy access and minimum fuss. All of our rucksacks have padded, comfortable straps and are easy to carry. As with the business bags, the more expensive rucksacks are made from high quality, durable vintage leather.
