Böle Tannery

Double Minister Briefcase

The Double Minister is Bōle’s masterpiece Briefcase. As a matter of peculiarity, it has been made known in Sweden as a favourite object of one of our former prime ministers, who was before minister of something else, therefore a double minister.

Double birch wood bottom rails. Double interior compartments and double front pockets. Double locks from Italian brass. Single post handle with leather core.

All our Briefcases are made from a single hide of spruce bark tanned Swedish cattle from our own tannery. Made simply by taking the finest Swedish cattle hide we can find and placing it in a mix of spruce bark and Pite river water for 9-12 months. For the lining we use Nordic reindeer skin. The leathers are crafted into Briefcases in our sadlery in accordance with strict principles. The most important principle is simplicity, which is the key to durability. And we do pay attention to details.
