This briefcase is as simple as they come, handcrafted with those who need to carry little amounts of paperwork in mind. Behind the main front flap over that closes with a single clip-lock hidden behind a buckle, you will find one front pocket, right behind is a full length and depth zipped private compartment, ideal for keeping documents nice and flat. It separates the front pocket from the main compartment. Our clients have found that a 13" MacBook laptop will just about fit in this briefcase without a case but it will be a snug fit.
This satchel is handcrafted in full grain leather. The use of quality full grain hides, which are no less than 2,5mm thick, enables us to build strong satchels that will hold their shape throughout the years. Working with such thick hides is an art we mastered over the last century. Our threads, fitting, zippers are all especially made to fit and serve our leather. The deep black color of this satchel, through which the veins of the leather are just barely visible, was obtain through vegetable tanning, the only ecological tanning process that is 100% chrome-free. Newly vegetable tanned leather can seem a little stiff but the more you wear your satchel the better it will look and feel as the leather will soften and develop a beautiful patina.
The Ruitertassen Briefcase is a wonderful bag for professionals who need to be mobile and efficient. The single buckle makes it quick to open and its simple layout makes it easy to use. It will just about accept a small laptop. This is a sturdy briefcase that will handle years of intense commuting well.
