The Bunyan Briefcase is made with some of the most beautiful, unique luxury leather on the market - the Horween Leather Company's Dublin leather.  The five to six ounce vegetable tanned leather has a natural pull up affect which gives the bag a unique character from the outset of its life.  As the bag is used and enjoyed, the vegetable tanned leather will develop a beautiful patina and help tell the story of the bag's life.  

To complement the handsome leather, The Bunyan Briefcase is sewn with durable 138 bonded nylon thread, and further secured with solid brass rivets and hardware.  The main double pull zipper is an oversized No. 10 YKK brass zipper that rumbles open to access the bag's contents.  The back of the bag also comes with an all brass, yet smaller, YKK zipper.  

Two front pockets adorn the front of the bag with classic brass clasps.  The interior of the bag is lined with thick 12 ounce cotton khaki canvas, and has a separate compartment for a laptop up to 17", and organization for other accessories.  The handles and shoulder strap are made with two strips of thick Dublin leather for a truly durable and tactile feel.

A Little History

Though he was not an actual person, Paul Bunyan typifies the quintessential North American lumberjack.  The legend of Bunyan originated in the verbal tradition of North American loggers who talked of Bunyan as having superhuman strength and abilities.  His legend grew through the writings of William B. Laughed, beginning in a 1916 promotional pamphlet for the Red River Lumber Company, as well as the collection of original Bunyan stories from University of Wisconsin student K. Bernice Stewart.  

Though born in folklore, the stories of Bunyan and his blue ox, Babe, exemplify the excitement of the great outdoors and the North American forests in particular.  The life of a lumberjack is one of difficulty and bravery, and the fabled stories of Bunyan's deeds serve the purpose of kindling the adventuresome spirit in many of us.


Inside Coronado Leather

Established in 1981 by Carol and Danny Laulom, Coronado Leather began with just two skilled sewers, a cutter and a handful of leather bags.  Carol and Danny began expanding the business in the mid 1980's.  Their sensitivity to market demand and attention to high craftsmanship lead to a tradition of excellence and commitment to quality that has crossed two generations.  Today, Coronado Leather has become a leader and innovator in premium-made leather gear. As evidenced in their products, Coronado has a strong passion for leather and the old art of real craftsmanship. Each product is built to be better and stronger than most of what is available today. Part of Coronado's core competency is the belief that true value in any product lies in design, materials and craftsmanship rather than price, and that is where they out pace their competitors.

Coronado's passion for leather, design and attention to detail is the driving force behind what they do today. Their styles and designs are classic, functional and straight-forward. They do not over-embellish products with hardware to hide stitching, they keep the focus on using the best leathers, the best designs and the best craftsmanship.  This ensures timeless designs that customers will be proud to own.

More than thirty-years after its founding, Coronado is still located in San Diego, California. In 2011, Coronado opened its new San Diego factory and leather-shop where many of its products are made. Their USA made products really are the best-of-the-best. With both modern and vintage leather machinery and a lot of hand-crafting, they continue to build some of the finest leather products found anywhere in the world. The Coronado Leather brand name remains synonymous with quality, style and innovation, with a broad line of highest-quality, handcrafted leather goods.
