Handcrafted using techniques pioneered by our founder Jacob de Ruiter, this satchel 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 generous dual-compartment interior and large front pockets to organise your essentials.
Store confidential documents in the divider zippered pocket.
You can carry this satchel three ways: over the shoulder, by the handle or as a backpack for hands-free commuting.
The Scholar backpack satchel embodies Ruitertassen’s timeless character.
