We are thrilled to be part of the amazing StyleForum community. We have spent the last year in product development and have heavily relied on the community to help us design leather products which help serve the modern individuals needs more effectively.
I’m Sara, co-founder at RockDove.
At RockDove we are passionate about creating the finest quality leather products using premium materials, all the while ensuring that we are priced reasonably.
We introduced RockDove to the world a few months ago on Kickstarter, where our main focus was on making our leather products trackable. However, invaluable feedback from the crowdfunding community led us to rethink our product offering and focus on the core product i.e. our leather products instead of the tracking technology. We have taken this advice seriously are now introducing the RockDove Soft Leather Briefcase which not only uses the highest quality materials but is also personalizable based on your individual needs and taste.
Roast Soft Briefcase
Cerulean Soft Briefcase
The personalization of the Soft Briefcase happens across two parts: design and construction.
Design Personalization: We have introduced modularity in the front zipped pocket of our briefcase where two modules (independent mini wallets) can be attached/detached using magnetic buttons which allow for easy removal of the modules along with a reliable hold. You can choose two from a choice of five module designs and customize your front pocket based on your needs. We also integrated an expandable laptop pocket inside the briefcase, which can accommodate laptops ranging from 11” - 15” in screen size.

Construction Personalization: realizing the value of personalization for users, we have integrated a customized system to construct our leather bag where every bag is unique to its user. We are offering choice:
Gold or Silver Metal Hardware (including Zips)
Inlay Fabric Color
How To Personalize a RockDove Soft Briefcase
We are committed to using the very best quality material for our products, following is a snapshot:
Full grain vegetable tanned cow leather which develops a beautiful patina over time.
Italian made Riri® zips known for their high quality and superior performance worldwide.
Gold and Silver plated Hardware: Sourced from a reputable manufacturer who supply hardware to major brands like Prada, Coach and Burberry.
Inlay Fabric: American made Cordura® 500 Denier Oxford Nylon with water resistant properties.
We have put in a lot of effort to ensure we bring the finest product to our users. While we have been fortunate to gain access to the finest materials; our real pride is the workmanship. Each bag is hand-stitched meticulously by a group of craftsmen who have been masters of their trade for decades. To give you a glimpse of the finesse our craftsmen have been able to achieve take a look at the pictures below.
We are planning on launching our campaign on Indiegogo in a couple of weeks to help raise funds and bring RockDove to life, following which we hope to launch our own online store. During our Indiegogo campaign our Briefcase will be on a significant discount at GBP 170 (and early birds at GBP 150) compared to retail price at GBP 300. We also plan on offering the briefcase initially in Roast and Cerulean, but plan on offering more colours as stretch goals (you can decide on the colour at the end of the campaign).
It’s been a meandering journey for us, but we are glad to be here and excited about getting RockDove into people’s homes. We are eager to hear your feedback and welcome all questions about us and our Soft Briefcase.
