Handcrafted using techniques pioneered by our founder Jacob de Ruiter, this satchel is cut from full-grain black leather with hand-finished black edges.
Weeks spent interacting with natural barks in wooden drums is how it matures to an exceptionally durable hide.
The surface is unaltered, showing authentic grain variations and occasional light scars or striations.
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.
The interior is fully lined in hard-wearing olive canvas for added strength.
It features one padded pocket for a 15-inch laptop and a capacious dual-compartment interior.
Store confidential documents in the divider zippered pocket.
The large asymmetric front pockets are ideal for quick stowing.
Attach the canvas shoulder strap to lighten the load on your daily commute. It comes fitted with a wide leather shoulder strap for comfort while carrying.
The Scholar satchel embodies Ruitertassen’s timeless character.
