About the product

We are helping the classic briefcase of the 1960s to make a well-deserved comeback. This bag design represents style and functionality like no other. Laptop bag »Hugo« is suitable for notebooks up to 16" as well as files and documents in size DIN A4. A masterpiece of craftsmanship with many useful details.

On the outside, the men's handbag has 2 large zipped compartments and a sewn-on strap for attaching the bag to a trolley. Inside, the bag has a padded 16" laptop compartment and 2 open compartments as well as 3 pen holders. Valuables such as tablet computers, mobile phones, notebooks or writing utensils can thus be safely stowed away.

The "Hugo" laptop bag can be worn as a traditional briefcase on the handle or with the adjustable strap across-body as a shoulder bag. However, the shoulder strap can be removed.

The bag has a high-quality finish. All wear points are lined with extra leather on the outside. All stress points are additionally reinforced. On the underside, the bag is nobly quilted and padded.

Our story

We are Daniel and Christoph and live our dream. We founded DRAKENSBERG because we want to inspire people to recognize the true value of travel and to strive for it.

To understand the path as the true goal and to grow on it. A good journey means learning. About life and about yourself. We know that a good journey can change a whole life. Our travel bags are silent reminders of the travel spirit of the 19th and 20th century, when traveling was still an adventure and travelers were adventurers.


Maybe you have already noticed, our bags are different. Each product is an elaborately manufactured unique piece with its own little story. The bags are almost completely handmade. We only use high quality leather and natural materials. Paying attention to sustainability and environment.

Leather is a natural material and can have small irregularities. Each leather product is also patinated by hand. This elaborate process makes our products trademarked. No bag can be exactly same as another. Thus, small colour deviations are unfortunately unavoidable and are not a sign of poor quality, but uniqueness.

FAQs: Frequently asked questions about our Briefcase »Hugo«

<h3><b>Is the Briefcase "Hugo" in Black sturdy or rather soft?</b></h3> <p>This men's handbag belongs to the so-called soft luggage and is made of full-grain but soft buffalo leather on the outside. Therefore, the shape changes slightly depending on the amount of contents. The leather Briefcase for men was designed based on the couriers and delivery services of the 1950s. Originally developed as a practical and easily accessible bag for carrying mail and packages, it was often worn over the shoulder to have hands-free access and quick access to the content. Over time, these bags evolved into a fashionable trend and gained popularity among cyclists and urban dwellers, as they offered a practical and stylish transportation solution.</p> <p></p> <h3><b>Is the Briefcase "Hugo" in Black waterproof or water-resistant?</b></h3> <p>To be as authentic as possible, we exclusively use materials just like they did 60 years ago and try to avoid plastics and chemicals as much as possible. Unfortunately, our Briefcase "Hugo" in the standard version is not waterproof or water-resistant. However, a brief rain shower won't harm our bags. Alternatively, the briefcase can be treated with an impregnating agent to make it water-resistant.</p> <p></p> <h3><b>Can the Briefcase "Hugo" in Black be made waterproof afterwards?</b></h3> <p>The men's leather handbag can be easily impregnated afterward using a commercially available colorless impregnating spray (e.g., Impru00e4gnol). However, one should keep in mind that this process may change the color and texture of the bag. It's best to test the impregnation on the underside of the bag.</p> <p></p> <h3><b>How can I clean and care for my Briefcase "Hugo" in Black?</b></h3> <p>We believe that a vintage-designed shoulder bag should show the signs of its intensive use. That's the way it's meant to be. However, if you still feel the need to clean your bag, we recommend three steps:</p> <ul> <li>Remove dust and dirt particles from the Briefcase, e.g., with a brush or a handheld vacuum cleaner.</li> <li>Gently dab and rub stains with a clean and damp cloth.</li> <li>Occasionally apply a light coat of leather conditioner (e.g., one with beeswax or carnauba wax).</li> </ul> <p></p> <h3><b>What type of leather is used for the Briefcase "Hugo" in Black?</b></h3> <p>For our men's shoulder bags, we exclusively use vegetable-tanned and full-grain buffalo leather. This particularly robust leather comes from India. During production, our leather is hand-finished with a colored wax based on carnauba, giving it a special vintage patina.</p> <p></p> <h3><b>How do men best carry the Briefcase "Hugo" in Black?</b></h3> <p>A shoulder bag can be carried simply over the shoulder or diagonally across the shoulder. We recommend carrying our men's shoulder bags made of canvas and leather diagonally across the shoulder to better distribute the weight of the bag. It is less tiring when you have to cover longer distances with the bag on your shoulder. In general, one should switch the carrying sides on longer distances to evenly distribute and relieve the back and spine.</p> <p>In general, Briefcases should not be overloaded. Before embarking on a journey or heading to work, it's a good idea to assess which items are truly needed for that day. This will help protect your back and the bag's material.</p> <p></p> <h3><b>Where and how is the Briefcase "Hugo" in Black manufactured?</b></h3> <p>Our bags are manufactured in India. Our workshop is a small family business whose long-term employees craft our bags with a lot of heart and passion. Over time, a genuine friendship has grown from our long collaboration. The production conditions are socially acceptable and comply with BSCI standards, which we regularly verify in person. Our leather and cotton fabrics are sourced locally in India. When dyeing our cotton fabrics, we exclusively use dyes free of AZO colorants. Our leathers are fundamentally vegetable-tanned, meaning they are based on plant materials and do not involve the use of aggressive tanning agents. Our standards are socially and environmentally responsible and above average. However, it is our commitment to continue working on ourselves and further improve our ecological and social footprint.</p>

Our leather production is LWG certified

Our leather tannery is certified to the LWG standard and we use only vegetable tanning agents for tanning. The Leather Working Group (LWG) is an initiative to make conditions in tanneries and intermediaries more transparent and to bring about sustainable change. To implement its goals, the Leather Working Group has developed an audit protocol for sustainable and responsible leather production.
