The Original Marcellino Latch

The Marcellino Latch is a signature design that was originally created for attorney clients many years ago. The design is a simple yet strong mechanism for closing a briefcase, and it was developed in close collaboration with clients who sought a fine, handmade, authentic style classic bridle leather briefcase that would reflect their professional image. Following extensive strength testing, style variations, and customer feedback, the Marcellino Latch Design was created, offering a unique and robust alternative to traditional buckles for ease of opening and closing.

The design was so well-received that it caught the attention of the CNBC TV show Billion Dollar Buyer, where Tilman Fertitta, the billionaire owner of Landry’s Corporation, The Golden Nugget Hotels, and The Houston Rockets, personally evaluated the design at the Marcellino workshop. Impressed by the latch, he placed a $140,000 order for handbags and briefcases with the Marcellino Latch design, as can be seen on the TV show.
