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.
