The Reinvention of the Briefcase

A briefcase is a practical everyday accessory that has risen in popularity and become a fashion must-have in recent years.

The briefcase is an ancestor of the satchel from the 14th Century, when the Romans would use it for carrying money and other valuables. Over the years it developed into a case with a hard shell, turning into the metal framed black briefcase with number lock that we generally think of. This style of briefcase was sought after for many years and thought of as an office workers staple, but as with most things, fashions change and progress.

The current style of briefcase is softer and more versatile. We live in a technology heavy era where paperwork is fast becoming a thing of the past, therefore we now look for space and security in a briefcase for our phones, tablets and chargers.

Here are just a few of our favourite briefcases that we’re sure you will love!
