Over 90 years ago in a small town in Holland, a leather craftman embarked on a path that would make him design one of the world’s most emblematic satchel.
Handcrafted using techniques pioneered by Jacob de Ruiter, this satchel is cut from robust vegetable-tanned oiled leather.
Only the interaction of the hide with mimosa, quebracho and chestnut barks delivers the deep natural colour of our vintage leather.
Rich in character, it will develop an exceptional patina over time.

The back and front flap are masterfully made of a single piece of hide to minimize weak points.
We use heavy gauge nylon thread for durability and heavy-duty push locks hidden behind the adjustable buckles.
The interior is fully lined in hard-wearing olive canvas for added strength.
It features one padded pocket for a 15-inch laptop and two capacious compartments.
The large front pockets are ideal for quick stowing.
Store confidential documents in the divider zippered pocket.

You can carry this satchel three ways: over the shoulder, by the handle or as a backpack for hands-free commuting.
This timeless piece embodies the rich character of our heritage.

You can personalise your leather satchel with your name, personal motto or a logo to make it completely unique.

    True to its name, this backpack satchel serves the needs of any aspiring scholar. From books to papers, and laptop to writing aids, you have room for everything – in an organized way. Make sure you have a good idea about the size of this bag as it can accommodate a lot of stuff. If you move around with less material, you may want to look into a Professor Satchel.

    I have nothing but good things to say about the Scholar Backpack Pro II. Every aspect of the craftsmanship is second to none. Over the last few years, I have gone through various satchels and bags. Most lasted about 2 years. I carry a laptop, notebooks, books and sketchbooks daily and the wear and tear on the bags caused either the material to break down or the hardware to give. I have been using this bag for approximately 10 months and it shows no signs of wear. I can honestly say it is the best made bag/briefcase I have ever used. I am so happy with it that I will be purchasing a second, smaller satchel to use when I am not using this one. For anyone interested in this bag, the one thing I will say is it is big. I would recommend actually measuring what you will be carrying to see if this is suitable for your needs. If you will be carrying an abundance of items, this is definitely for you. I would also like to say that the customer service I have received has been excellent. Aymeric has answered all of my many questions and has been extremely helpful every time I have sent an email. I highly recommend Ruitertassen to everyone!

    Where should I start?
    In summary, in my humble opinion, this is the best leather bag that you will ever acquire. I’m madly in love with the silhouette. The smell is delicious. The leather quality is, well, you need to experience it firsthand with your sense because I won’t do any justice in describing it; it is simply impeccable.
    The stitching is super solid, and when you combine it with thick Belgian leather, you will have the sexiest and the most handsome, rugged, and bomb-proof satchel. The cave inside is spacious! I can even fit my umbrella along with all my essentials inside. The leather strap for cross-body and backpack straps are also super sturdy.
    I only wish this satchel got some side protection from the rain because when you close it, the inside still gets exposed from above. We need a solution to this. Also, a painted edge would be nice. But, all and all, it’s ten stars BIG satchel that can last you a lifetime.

    PS: I need to warn you though; it might a bit uncomfortable when everybody steals a glance at this bad boy when commuting 🙂
