It’s always worth taking note when British leather accessories brand Ettinger introduces new products, and its latest trio is no exception. A more slimline and lightweight alternative to the Ettinger Westminster Briefcase, the Burlington Briefcase is a new addition to the brand’s Heritage Collection which remains big enough to hold a slim laptop or tablet despite the double gusset having been replaced with a single one.
With an exterior made of bridle leather and suede lining within, the briefcase – which comes in black, hazelnut, nut and the highly recognisable Ettinger London Tan and retails at £1,150 – features a large compartment alongside an A4-sized pocket slip for papers, as well as a brass lock to keep the case secure; on the back, there is another A4-sized pocket slip lined with gold Ettinger-monogrammed jacquard fabric.
The Ettinger Slim Card Case, meanwhile – a new addition to Ettinger’s goat leather Capra Collection – features six vertical card slots and two side slip pockets, all with Ettinger’s grey monogrammed jacquard lining. Available in three colours – marine blue, tan and black – it retails at £135.
Finally, another addition to the Capra Collection is the Capra Washbag – the first the brand has launched in a long while and a response to very vocal customer demand. Made using water-resistant goat leather on the outside and grey Ettinger-monogrammed jacquard lining on the inside, it has a handle for carrying ease and is available in marine blue, black and tan (£295).
“Having road tested samples of these new items on my extensive business travels last autumn, I know they all work beautifully and will be great additions to our portfolio,” says the brand’s CEO Robert Ettinger. “Hand-in-hand with my designers and craftspeople, we’re constantly reviewing the products we make to ensure that they fit in with the changing requirements of our increasingly cash-less, technology-focused, low maintenance and fast-moving lifestyles.”
