Made in Walthamstow by Dunhill

British luxury goods brand dunhill who specialise in ready-to-wear, leather goods and accessories have just released a short film exploring the traditional craftsmanship utilised at its Walthamstow leather workshop in London’s East End.


Staying true to the origins of the brand founded in 1893 by 21 year old Alfred Dunhill the film follows the construction of a single Brook briefcase, made by hand in its entirety it is crafted in the finest quality vegetable tanned bridle leather.

Following a progressive timeline watch as the dunhill craftsman hand cuts, sews and finishes the briefcase using techniques and materials used for centuries. Attention to detail is apparent here, and as many of you will know; it shows in the final product too- something dunhill is renowned for.


The video pays homage to British craft, with a modest North London setting playing host to the luxury within- think calfskin weekend bags, embossed wallets and handmade attaché cases.
