When Sam Launer came to England from Czechoslovakia over 60 years ago, he brought with him an idea that has remained with Launer to this day; handbags and leather goods should be elegant, be formed out of the best materials available and made by highly skilled craftspeople.
Launer was awarded the Royal Warrant of appointment by H.M. The Queen for handbags and small leather goods in 1981.
Launer’s trademark is understated, elegant and classic – beautiful leather articles made by craftsmen and women using traditional skills in Walsall, near the English midlands capital city, Birmingham.
Launer wallets, card cases, purses and handbags are handmade in the softest calf, exotic lizard, and ostrich skin. Every attention is paid to detail, and gold plated fittings feature the Launer rope emblem, the perfect finishing touch.
