4 in stock (can be backordered)

Handcrafted using techniques pioneered by our founder Jacob de Ruiter, this satchel is cut from full-grain tan leather.
Weeks spent interacting with natural barks in wooden drums is how it matures to an exceptionally smooth and durable hide.
This leather will slowly develops a warm patina over time depending on its use and sun exposure.

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.
This timeless bag embodies the rich character of our heritage.

You can personalise your leather satchel with your name, personal motto or a logo to make it completely unique.

    I just received my Scholar with backpack straps and am thrilled with it in every way. I love that Ruitertassen kept its classic satchel designs. They are timeless! I did the research, and this is by far the best value at this price point. You can easily spend hundreds more for a leather bag of lesser quality and fewer features. I wear it with the backpack straps on my daily commute on my city’s light-rail metro system. Since I live near two major universities, I am already getting positive comments. If the commenters don’t know the Ruitertassen name (not being bag geeks like me!) I tell them it’s the company that made the leather satchels for the Harry Potter movies. The shipping was great, too; I ordered it on a Thursday, and it was at my door (from Belgium!) the following Tuesday.
