Carl Friedrik is a luxury leather bags and accessories brand, started by two brothers in 2012.
Quality is the keystone of the brand and every product is made by skilled artisans in the best tanneries, from naturally tanned leather sourced from Italy and Belgium. The provenance of each item is included with the product information and the company prides itself on being transparent about where each part of every item is sourced and made.
The items are inspired by London and designed with a Scandinavian minimalistic aesthetic with clean lines and only features necessary for function without fuss.
Any item from the Carl Friedrik collection would make a great Christmas present for the man who has everything this year (there’s also a new briefcase available – the Penton – designed specifically for women) To make an extra special gift, the leather on any items can be personalized with embossed initials in black, silver, or gold.
The Vallance is an elegant and minimalistic slim leather briefcase, made to the highest quality. The Italian Vachetta leather is available in Cognac, Black, Navy, or Chocolate colours, with different choices of lining. Access to the bag is via the top heavy-duty Raccagni zipper, on which every zip is individually brushed and polished before assembly. A zipper extension allows effortless access to your laptop and documents inside.
An open slip pocket at the front of the briefcase makes an ideal storage place for your passport and boarding card while travelling.
This bag is the perfect size to carry all your everyday essentials without the excess bulk of a traditional briefcase – ideal for nipping across town for meetings or trips to the neighbourhood coffee shop.

If you need a case to go with that new iPhone under the Christmas tree this year, add a touch of luxury and personality with the Carl Friedrik cases for iPhone 6, 6+, 7, 7+, 8, 8+, and the new iPhone X.
The cases are made with premium natural leather with folding edges and a microfibre lining to create a hardwearing but naturally smooth protective case. Each case is available in a selection of colours including Tan, Cognac, Black, and Chocolate.
