Asprey Luggage & Briefcases

With a tradition of craftsmanship dating back to 1781, Asprey is a British luxury goods institution that has held royal warrants of appointment from every English monarch since Queen Victoria. Long a preferred supplier of luggage and other luxury bags to royalty and aristocracy the world over, Asprey caters to a high-net-worth clientele.

Asprey is appreciated by collectors for its refined handcrafted leather goods. In fact, Asprey made its name crafting travel bags for discerning travelers during the Gilded Age. Today, Asprey luggage is on par with the best luxury brands in the world.

When it comes to business companions, Asprey briefcases are the gold standard. Accented with high-grade hardware and hand-stitched from smooth calfskin, durable bridle saddle leather, or exotic skins like crocodile or ostrich, they are produced in old-school stock designs and custom-made to suit individual needs.

Asprey's top-flight travel and business bags age gracefully, last a lifetime, and perform well at auction. Bidders are often excited to snap up vintage Asprey briefcases in particular.
