This compact briefcase has the standard features expected from WaterField products: padded pockets for two devices, visible gold liner, full-grain leather accents, and slot for carry-on handles.

All our products are crafted locally in our workshop by the most skilled sewing team in San Francisco.

“We were drawn by the idea that a single fold can transfrom a simple square into an interesting design. We use the notch created by the fold to create a pocket and emphasize the diagonal from the fold creates."

- Amyel, WaterField's super Creative Officer 



Full-grain leather makes all the difference in a handle. It softens, takes shape, and gets more comfortable each time you carry it. 



If you have the waxed canvas version of the Verve Laptop Briefcase, you can keep your bag looking new by applying wax when you think it needs a little refresh. Although any wax is applicable, you can use Martexin Original Wax which was initially used to coat your canvas bag. 



If you have the waxed canvas and chocolate leather version of the Verve Laptop Briefcase, Gary shows how you can maintain these materials so they’ll look great over time. We use full grain Roughman Leather for your bag which has oils that respond well to heat.


Although this video is for the AirPods Max Shield Case, the maintenance also applies to your bag.
