Product Story

Benjamin Franklin is the founding father who winks at us, that ambitious urban entrepreneur who seems made of flesh rather than marble ...
~ Walter Isaacson (Benjamin Franklin, An American Life)

Franklin was a successful inventor, writer, publisher, diplomat, drafter/signer of our Declaration of Independence, abolitionist, entrepreneur, and networker. Another true Renaissance man and Mission Man.

Our Benjamin Collection is an intentional nod (and wink!) to good ole Ben, who would have felt right at home grabbing his namesake collection as his EDC (everyday carry for your Benjamins). 

Intentionality was our emphasis, from the hand-selected, marbled, twice-tanned leather (both chrome and vegetable tanning) to the rich yet simplistic lines visible in each Benjamin leather good. As you can see in the product images, we sourced our authentic, vintage early century inspiration piece from a UK family that had passed it down for years. With a little convincing, they graciously allowed us to purchase it and transform it into our modern day take on the Benjamin Briefcase.

We can imagine Mr. Franklin proudly carrying his collection on the streets of Philadelphia, Paris, or anywhere in the world his business or exploits might take him.

Where will your adventures take you with the Benjamin by your side?

More Info

Inspired by the statesman, inventor, theorist and author, our Benjamin Leather Briefcase is all about helping the workingman accomplish his tasks. Its weathered, been-around-the-world look, feel and smell of fine leather speaks volumes of its owner.

As Franklin wrote two centuries ago, "It is the working man who is the happy man. It is the idle man who is the miserable man."

Set this bag down in a meeting and see who looks like the wise-beyond-his-years go-getter. As Franklin stated, "He that waits on fortune is never sure of a dinner." Go get'em. Remember, the Constitution only gives people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself.
