For 80 years now, Harold's Taschenmanufaktur has been delighting lovers of fine, handmade leather bags. In 1936, the foundation stone for Harold's success story was laid in Obertshausen. "Companions for a lifetime" is how the company's owners describe the relationship between bag and wearer. They use it to equally outline their company philosophy. At Harold's, in the 3rd generation and today at three locations, they strive for the perfect fusion of timeless design, highest usability and uncompromising quality.


I present here two current Harold's models. The Cinturon Notebookbag 13-15 inch in brown inspires my friend, because it is about a very stylish, practical and yet simple briefcase for men. Only the matching notebook you have to bring yourself (s) to beat stylishly through the university and office everyday life.

In contrast, the Lanscape Totebag in cognac is an exceedingly chic women's handbag with that "certain something" and a heart for women with some pocket space needs.

The Cinturon is an elegant, excellently crafted leather bag made of wonderfully soft vegetable tanned cowhide, which will become even more beautiful as the product ages. Men are particularly convinced by the timeless simplicity and usability of the bag, which comes without any put on fashionable frills. We women might feel a bit envious if Harold's didn't have great models ready for us as well. (See below).

Also the interior layout convinces with that certain understatement that characterizes Harold's bags. The Cinturon is opened via a zipper, which is chic in gold contrasting with the brown leather. A well-padded laptop compartment comfortably holds tablets and laptops up to 15 inches. Another compartment is designed for writing materials, valuables and documents. The elegant stone gray linen upholstery fabric of the inside pocket underlines the value of this practical bag, which always makes "bella figura" in everyday life as well as at job interviews or events. One front and one back compartment each with zipper complete the very good usability of the bag.
