About

The Peel attaché is a slim, lid-over attaché with hand-stitched closure and a tapered raw edge finish.

Each Peel attaché case is individually created in our Cambridge workshop by Swaine Adeney's leather master, who sculpts and hand stitches the fine English bridle leather. (The handle alone takes more than two hours to make: it is made up of eight individual components which must be sewn together.) In fact, the leather is completely hand-stitched with natural linen thread using a "twin needle" saddlery technique.

Once the internal pockets have been added, the attaché passes to the metal worker's bench, where the solid brass locks and fittings are hand cast, hand-polished to a satin finish and attached to the case.

Did you know?

  • Sir Robert Peel, 2nd Baronet (5 February 1788 - 2 July 1850) was the Conservative Prime Minister of Great Britain from 10 December 1834 to 8 April 1835, and again from 30 August 1841 to 29 June 1846.
  • Whilst Home Secretary, he helped to create the modern concept of the police force. (Leading to officers being known as "Bobbies" in England, or as "Peelers", in Ireland).
  • He oversaw the formation of the Conservative Party out of the shattered Tory Party and repealed the Corn Laws.
  • Sir Robert Peel's father, the 1st Baronet (1750-1830), after whom he was named, was also an English politician and industrialist.
  • Peel's son the 3rd Baronet (1822-1895) - yes, you've guessed it, also a Robert - was a politician too.
