Our "Shrunken" American Bison is a complex and unique leather that has many characteristics of an "exotic" leather. The hides are a full 6-8oz. chrome with a vegetable re-tannange to give the hides a bit more body. They are tanned in Milwaukee, Wisconsin (USA) from bison hides that originated in North America. The leather goes through a complex tanning process that shrinks the hide to enhance the already bold natural grain of bison. The hides are sprayed with a wax prior to applying a touch on a "hot chromed mirror plate" to give them a unique, glassy sheen. The pebbled grain is not compromised and is 100% natural.
The finish of the leather has a subtle but sleek sheen with a two-toned "tipping" effect. In our classic "Walnut" color you will see browns & tans all in the same hide. It is a full 6-8oz. in weight and like most bison leathers, extremely durable and tanned and finished in the USA.
THE BISON CEO No.200
THE DESIGN DETAILS
Our Bison CEO is exclusively built in our San Diego, California leather shop using old-world, American craftsmanship and premium materials. We start with our signature "Shrunken American Bison" leather combined with premium Horween® latigo trim, handles and straps, both tanned in USA. With close to thirty pieces of leather carefully cut to make each briefcase, the process is not simple. Any raw-edges are polished and hand-stained, rivets and holes are set by hand and folded edges are skillfully skived one by one. We sew each bag with a combination of contrasting gold brown and dark brown for a refined and bold look. Designed and built to be a full-size briefcase with maximum capacity, the CEO is not your average bag. The main compartment is wide enough to carry all your documents, folders and other gear, with a divided back panel that is re-enforced to carry and support most laptops and tablets. In addition, you will find a card pocket, three-way pen loop and a 6" wide Ykk brass zipper for any small essentials. The opposite panel is stitched with two dividers to slide tech accessories, notepads or other personal items. The front has two larger gusset pockets with solid-brass turn locks. A perfect space for chargers, cables, cell-phone and more The back panel is built with another 8" Ykk brass zipper along with our signature, key-locking CCW compartment. Equally as functional as a security-pocket when traveling as a self-protection pocket.
THE OTHER MATERIALS
Quality doesn't just end with a good design, the Bison CEO No.200 is finished with premium hardware and linings. We use solid-brass swivels, buckles, turn-locks and hand-set rivets. The main zipper is an ultra-durable #10 Ykk brass zipper (Made In USA) and the body is lined with premium 8oz. cotton canvas in a caramel/tan tone. We stitch them all together with a combination of #277 and #138 bonded thread.
