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 oversized 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 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 a generous three-compartment interior for a laptop, A4 lever arch file, planner and work essentials.
Store confidential documents in the divider zippered pockets.
The large front pockets are ideal for quick stowing.
Attach the leather shoulder strap to lighten the load on your daily commute.
If you carry a lot of gear, this is a perfect heirloom quality bag.
You can personalise your leather satchel with your name, personal motto or a logo to make it completely unique.

I’m a professor, I purchased this satchel two years ago. I can’t say I take great care of my things. I use it every day, and it’s often heavily loaded.
Up to this point, it hasn’t changed one bit. It is still beautiful. When choosing a model, I received really good guidance from the company, and shipping was fast and trouble free. I whole heartedly recommend the Ruitertassen satchel.

I was looking for a new work briefcase that would be able to handle the volume of documents and supplies I carry around each day. I needed a bag that looked good and had great use of organizational space in it to keep everything separate and organized. I did quite a bit of research and have tried other bags and then I found Ruitertassen!! The Oversized Professor Satchel III with the three large storage areas and 2 large front pockets was the one. Upon receiving the bag with excellent support from Ruitertassen customer service, I was instantly impressed and happy with my choice. The quality of this bag, and it’s leather is amazing and the space, exactly what I have been looking for. Looking forward to many, many years of service from this amazing bag!! Thank you
