Finnigans House Firm was a British suitcase and luxury suitcase manufacturer established in 1830, originally in Manchester and later on New Bond Street in London. The House of Finnigans was one of Great Britain’s best leather goods manufacturers and a successful luxury goods retailer. Well known for its traditional know-how and craftsmanship, Finnigans produced a wide range of luxury goods, including trunks, bags, fashion, jewelry, watches, and silverware. In 1830, Brian Finnigan established a firm of his own, the Finnigans house. He opened a workshop in Newton Street Mill, and a Finnigans store in Market Street, the most fashionable part of Manchester then. Finnigans soon became famous for their high-quality leather goods and saddlery. When the picnic became a fashionable outdoor activity, Finnigans made the “Wicker Picnic Basket”, which was popular not only with English travelers, but also the Indian Rajahs who used to tied them on the backs of elephants.
