Handcrafted in veg-tanned Vacchetta leather, this handsome briefcase has a well-organised two part interior and sturdy top handle. Comes with a detachable webbing strap, a boon when travelling.


This handsome leather briefcase has been handcrafted in Italy for OSPREY LONDON by Tuscany's most skilful leather artisans. Created in very limited numbers using traditional saddlery techniques, The Ripon is robustly constructed in black vegetable-tanned Vacchetta leather. With a detachable webbing strap, a boon when travelling, The Ripon features a spacious and well-organised interior.
Traditional in styling, this wonderful full-grained leather softens and takes on the rich patina of the life you give it, making this a very special bag indeed.

  • Men's top-handle briefcase handmade in Vacchetta leather, a premium Italian vegetable-dyed cowhide. In Italy, Vachetta leather bags are highly prized when they have been used for years and wear the marks of their history with pride.

  • Through handling and exposure to sunlight, this leather evolves a rich patina that gets better with age and use.

  • As with all leathers, avoid getting wet.

  • Handstitched in sporty, contrast-stitching.

  • Features foldover flap with discreetly embossed OSPREY LONDON logo.

  • Closes with a pale gold, lockable shield clasp.

  • Key is hidden safely inside the briefcase in a self-coloured leather sheath.

  • Briefcase also comes with an adjustable/detachable shoulder strap with gold metal fittings to attach the strap to the top-handle. Attached to the strap is a leather luggage tag bearing the embossing: OSPREY LONDON MADE IN ITALY.

  • The sturdy rolled leather top handle is constructed using traditional saddlery techniques and is handstitched with contrast-stitching.

  • Lined in red brushed twill cotton.

  • Interior is divided in two to help keep your bag organised and features two slip pockets, two zipped compartments and long zipped pocket.

  • The reverse of this bag is embossed with the legend: Genuine Florentine Vacchetta leather.

  • Gold feet help to protect the base of the bag when standing.

  • Comes with cream OSPREY LONDON dust bag to protect the bag when not in use.


At OSPREY LONDON, each leather is selected for its individual beauty, performance and feel. Each skin is unique, so any irregularity is viewed as characteristic of leather's natural appeal.

As with all natural materials, leather needs special care. Through handling and exposure to sunlight, Vacchetta leather evolves a rich patina that gets better with age and use. Please follow these tips to help keep your OSPREY LONDON Vachetta leather product looking great:

  • Keep your product away from direct sources of light and heat.

  • In Italy, Vacchetta leather bags are most highly prized when they have been used for years and wear the patina of age with pride.

  • Ensure your suede or leather product does not rub against other fabrics, to reduce any risk of colour transference and to protect its special finish.

  • Dampness, humidity and rain should be avoided. If your OSPREY LONDON product does become wet, blot the excess moisture with a soft, light-coloured cloth; stuff with tissue paper; and leave to dry naturally.

  • Don't overfill your OSPREY LONDON bag or wallet. Travelling light will help it retain its shape - and it's better for your back too.

  • When not in use, stuff your bag with acid-free paper and store it in a fabric dust bag.

  • Always refer stains to a specialist leather cleaner.

Treat it well and your OSPREY LONDON product will give you great pleasure for many years to come.
