Today, we are excited to announce that master leather craftsman Frank Clegg has launched a completely new website. With a clean new look that highlights his exceptional collection of handcrafted leather goods, Frank’s new site is a study in focus and clarity.
Frank Clegg has been in the luxury goods business for more than 40 years and makes some of the best leather travel bags, briefcases, and classic totes, and accessories on the market. While Frank and his small team of craftsmen design and build elegant leather goods under the Frank Clegg name, the workshop also produces outstanding products for some of the most revered of American luxury labels.
Frank is an artist of the old school; he learned craft over time and understands that when true luxury is involved, less is definitely more. What makes Frank particularly unique is that he is both a designer and a craftsman. Everything sold by Frank Clegg was designed by him and made in-house.
In fact, he is held in such high esteem that when the White House went looking for a made-in-America personal briefcase for President Obama, they turned to Frank. That Zip-Top Briefcase next to the Resolute Desk in the photo above, Frank made that himself.
You only need to examine a Frank Clegg product to know that he doesn’t just make leather bags; he crafts heirlooms, one at a time, by hand. Luxury leather work is a deceivingly complex craft. Even the modern conveniences of machines and computerized design must bow to the master of time, because it still takes time to create such durable beauty.
Indeed, Frank may practice an age-old craft, but this creative innovator is very much on the pulse of today’s luxury goods market.
To that end, the new website also showcases a few new bags, including the moderne Diablo Briefcase and a Suede Shield Duffle Bag that is part of his collection with designer Michael Bastain, both below:
