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 large satchel for men 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 long term durability and heavy-duty push locks hidden behind the pair of adjustable buckles.
It features a generous three-compartment interior for a laptop, A4 lever arch file, planner and work essentials.
Store confidential documents in the two divider zippered pockets.
The large asymmetric front pockets are ideal for quick stowing.
You can carry this Scholar satchel three ways: over the shoulder, by the handle or as a backpack for hands-free commuting.
If you transport a lot of gear, this is a true heirloom quality bag.
