Get noticed in the business world with this super chic vintage 1970s fabric covered briefcase. The fabric feels like linen or a linen blend and is printed with a mod stripe design in earthy yellow ochre, oatmeal beige, cocoa brown, denim blue, and flame orange. The handle and sides are a light beige vinyl. The gold tone metal clasps are round (so mod!) and the handle buckles onto the case - nice design details. The inside is just as fabulous as the outside. It’s lined in the same fabric and has a vinyl zippered compartment and two other open slot compartments. The case has two working locks and the two original keys, still in the manufacturer’s paper envelope. This is a standard size briefcase measuring 17” x 12.25” x 3”.

I’ve researched this thoroughly and have been unable to find another briefcase that is even vaguely similar to this one, which has no maker’s name on it anywhere I could find. It’s in great shape with a couple of barely noticeable spots on one side (see photo number two, far left side yellow stripe and far right side beige stripe). I did not try to clean these. On the inside, the upper right corner has just barely pulled loose from the back where it was glued down (see photo 4). A little bit of Shoe Goo glue should fix it if it’s a problem for you, but I’d probably leave it myself. The interior fabric is pristine, especially for a briefcase - no ink marks or dirty spots at all. I’d rate this as being in excellent vintage condition.

Domestic Shipping: The rate shown is for a 7 lb. insured parcel post package shipped to the zip furthest from me, but actual shipping to your zip code may be less. Feel free to convo me for exact rates. I will refund any postage overpayments.

Combined Shipping: I’m happy to ship multiple purchases together to lower shipping costs, but for most items I don’t pre-enter a combined amount as I prefer to figure it based on packed weight (it’s usually cheaper that way). If you’d like to know the cost to ship specific items together, just convo me. Combined shipping will always be less than shipping items separately.

International Shipping: Costs may be lower to your country. Feel free to convo me for exact rates.
