Handcrafted using techniques pioneered by our founder Jacob de Ruiter, this briefcase is cut from full-grain, deep red leather.
Weeks spent interacting with natural barks in wooden drums is how it matures to an exceptionally durable smooth and 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.
It features an unlined capacious single compartment and handy front pockets 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 Ruitertassen’s timeless character.
