This is a nicely crafted brown leather portfolio style briefcase by Michael Green. Portfolio style briefcases were very popular from the 1970's through the early 90s. This is a true classic designed by an ex hippie leather maker from Seattle.

This bag is suitable for carrying a 15 inch laptop as well as books and files. The interior is unlined suede. It has an interior slip pocket to hold those items you want to be able to get to quickly. The dual handles can be used to carry the case or you can treat it like a portfolio by letting them fold down on the sides.

Dimensions:

Length: 16 inches
Height: 11 inches
Width: 3 inches

Condition:

This bag is in good vintage condition. It has no rips, tears or holes and is structurally sound. However, like most leather bags over 30 it shows signs of wear over time through darkening of the leather, scuffs and scratches.

About Michael Green

Those of you who have browsed my other listings know that I like to research the background of the manufacturers of the bags we sell. My research has disclosed that Michael Green is an 'Ex Hippie' who began manufacturing leather bags since the 60s. This is what a 1993 Seattle Times Article had to say about Michael Green:

"Twenty five years ago (1968 based on this articles date), Michael Green was a hippie leather maker supporting himself on the streets of San Francisco by selling handmade leather sandals and clothes...Michael Green line of purses, bags and briefcases is inevitably compared with Coach leatherwear. Like Coach, Green's bags have clean, tailored lines and come in mostly traditional colors. Leatherwear connoisseurs, however, notice differences. Green's leather is a bit firmer, his styles slightly less blocky....Retailing from $26 for a small passport pouch to $264 for a briefcase, Green's bags cost somewhat less than Coach bags. He makes 35 styles in 13 colors, though some 60 percent of everything he sells is black. Each year Green adds four or five styles his newest designs are more gently rounded, he says, like the newest car silhouettes."
