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, the Student briefcase is cut from robust vegetable-tanned oiled leather.
Only the interaction of the hide with mimosa, quebracho and chestnut barks delivers the deep and 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 long term durability and heavy-duty push locks hidden behind the pair of adjustable buckles.
It features an unlined capacious single compartment and a handy front pocket to organise your essentials.
Store confidential documents in the divider zippered pocket.
Attach the leather shoulder strap to lighten the load on your daily commute.
The Student briefcase embodies the warm character of a classic Ruitertassen heritage bag.
