HERITAGE SATCHELS

THE TIMELESS CAREER BAG

STUNNING

Jacob de Ruiter designed our satchels in the 1950s. Characterised by their authentic materials and simplicity of form, they exude a uniquely rich heritage.

ROBUST

We work against planned-obsolescence and short-lived fashion trends since 1925. Strong nylon thread, thick vegetable-tanned leather, metal reinforced top handle... Our satchels are sturdy, and 100% repairable by all qualified leather artisans.

TAILORED

We all have a unique lifestyle. That's why you can choose the Heritage satchel that will perfectly fit your specific needs. From 1 to 3 main compartments, you will enjoy cavernous interiors in all models.

BELGIAN LEATHER.

(It's owl good).

You might have heard about our whopping waffles, bodacious beers, and chic chocolates...

But do you know of Belgian leather?
Artisanal leather is one of our many specialities.
Ours is vegetable-tanned in a 150 years-old tannery, here in Belgium.

You won't find a single trace a residual chrome in there. And the hide is sourced from Europe where cows thrive in grassland in which numerous insecticides and chemicals are banned.
