Buckle and Seam’s Cali business briefcase for laptops, notepads or documents – so much demand on launch the website crashed!

November 4, 2017 Gadgets No Comments Email Email

Premium business bag manufacturer, Buckle and Seam is today pleased to announce the UK availability of its luxury, vegetable tanned leather Cali business briefcase with a choice of inner lining and the option to personalise with initials. The Cali business briefcase is available exclusively at just £170 including worldwide shipping.

Manufactured by skilled craftsmen using carefully selected premium quality leather, the Cali business briefcase has been designed based on the great customer feedback Buckle and Seam received from its current business bag portfolio. As a company that strives to develop new products which will appeal to its loyal customer base, Buckle and Seam have created the Cali as complete newcomer in the business and travel sector. The Cali design business briefcase offers a unique personalisation option whereby consumers can choose their favourite inner lining from funky green boats to classic tartan and personalise with their initials on the outside.

Cali is a luxurious, sleek business briefcase, perfect for carrying a laptop, notebook and other business essentials. Inside the Cali is a padded laptop compartment which fits both 13” and 14” models and adjusted pockets for phone, business cards and pens. Up until now, Buckle and Seam customers have had the choice between laptop sleeves made in raw leather design or the significantly larger business satchel. The Cali business briefcase features a carry strap making it perfect for those who want to protect their device but are always on the go.

Following newsletters and marketing messages in Berlin, the Cali bag had proven to be so popular on its first day of launch that the Buckle and Seam website crashed!  Rest assured though, as the team have now upgraded servers and increased stock ready for the run up to Christmas!


The quality found in a Buckle and Seam bag is derived from the successful interaction between a selection of raw materials, experienced leather tanners, detail oriented manufacturers, and the use of only the finest accessories. The leather is carefully selected from the north of Pakistan and with an average thickness of 1.8 – 2 mm, it is twice as thick as the leather used in conventional leather bags and therefore more robust.  While most of the world’s leather is tanned involving harmful chemicals, the leather used in a Buckle and Seam bag is processed through a vegetable tanning technique. This process takes longer and requires more expertise, but is the most natural way of tanning leather.


After working and travelling across the globe, the founders of Buckle and Seam met in Pakistan and fell in love with the region. They met incredible people, travelled through enchanting landscapes and most of all, discovered Pakistan’s rich craftsmanship and fashion heritage. Most of the high-end leather goods sold in the western world are in fact produced in this region but few brands choose to communicate this fact. Buckle and Seam believed this country’s talents should be promoted proudly as well as the quality of the raw materials.


Customers who purchase a Buckle and Seam bag can also help change a girls life in the region by sending her to school and empowering her through direct access to literacy and education as Buckle and Seam will donate a part of each bag sold to a school they partnered with in Karachi. According to UNICEF statistics, Pakistan’s Adult Literacy Rate is 54.9%. Already one of the lowest rates in the world, the situation for women is even worse as only 45% are able to identify and write their name – the only two criteria to be considered literate according to UNICEF.


By building its own manufacturing unit in Pakistan and selling online, Buckle and Seam is able to shorten its supply chain and cut out players that would otherwise raise the price unnecessarily, passing on the cost savings to the end customer whilst being able to focus on the really important factors: leather and craftsmanship.
